Receiving

The reception of product is an important focus of our operations. Recognizing that each component integrating our facility will be used in a production process or stored for future shipment, we assign a high priority to being accurate throughout this process.

We receive over 35,000 pallets annually totaling over 40 million units of components yearly. Strict quality control (lot number, expiration date, quantity, quarantine, etc..) using radio frequency technology is performed on each of our receipt orders to ensure traceability of products from their entry in our facility until their shipment.

Quality Assurance

We have in place strict procedures and processes overseen and maintained by our quality assurance department. This approach allows us to attain the highest levels of quality required by our customers.

The products are controlled upon receipt, quarantined automatically by our WMS if required and followed throughout their life cycle within our environment.

Our site licenses, issued by Health Canada, allow us to store and handle products with active ingredients and natural health ingredients. In addition, all of our resources are trained on our quality system ensuring once again our commitment to meet the highest expectations of our customers.

We currently manage over 50,000 square feet of warehousing totaling more than 4,000 storage positions. This space is made up of different types of locations such as shelving, hand stack, single deep and double deep in order to accommodate all the different requirements our customers may have.

Moreover, thanks to our warehouse management system (WMS) and use of radio frequency technology, we maintain a level of inventory accuracy above 99.8%.
