Wesco Aircraft’s inspection process involves a dimensional, visual and certification inspection to ensure that product meets the latest revision.  If a non-conformance is discovered the entire lot is rejected and immediately returned to the manufacturer.  Our goal is to maintain or exceed our customers quality standards ensuring non-conforming product is not shipped.

To ensure the highest quality of our products, Wesco performs incoming inspections using industry accepted sampling plans and are performed using state of the art equipment, as appropriate.  All inspection equipment is calibrated on regularly scheduled intervals, ensuring accurate and consistent measurements.

Outbound product is verified that it meets all of our customer’s requirements prior to shipping.

Wesco’s enhanced inventory management system allows us to rapidly determine the location of product within our facility, in addition to complete inventory management, our system allows us to maintain 100% lot traceability for all of our products, both internally and on all shipments made to our customers.
