ZIN’s Purchasing Department is responsible for all aspects of procurement, logistics and the safe delivery of all raw components. ZIN’s procurement policies govern the purchase of materials of the right quality, in the right quantity, at the right time, at the right price and from the right sources. The supplier selection for many of these concerns may be the result of investigation and deliberation amongst various departments within ZIN, but price negotiation and purchase authority rest solely with the appropriate buyer. Only Purchasing representatives have the authority to bind the company through purchase orders, contracts, and contract modifications.


Our company emphasizes the importance of competitive bidding as a good business practice. We consider ability, capacity, integrity, financial status, past performance, quality of product, delivery and overall customer-supplier relations in evaluating a potential supplier and/or during a purchase.


ZIN ensures that all applicable provisions are flowed down to their sub tier contractors, including Quality System compliance to ISO9001, AS9100, or approved Quality Management System. ZIN is AS9100C certified, which builds on the foundation of our existing registration to ISO 9001:2008, by enhancing areas such as material trace ability, documentation, process control, scheduling, etc. that are critical to our industry.
