15 Distributors Sign Charter Pledging QCA Support
Mitch Monger, CEO of Sunrise Identity, agreed, saying that being a part of the QCA Distributor Advocacy Council is a testament to the commitment and seriousness with which industry leaders take product safety and compliance. "QCA's work is a positive step in helping the promotional products industry become a model for others to follow with respect to the important issues of product safety and compliance," he said. "By joining other like-minded industry leaders in their support of QCA, through the QCA DAC, we can work directly with fellow distributors, suppliers, factories and customers to ensure the promotional products industry is as well known for product safety and compliance as it is for innovation and creativity-and that's a very exciting prospect."
Brent Stone, QCA executive director - operations, concluded, "We are pleased that the relationship QCA has with these and other distributors continues to grow through increased interaction between end buyer clients, their distributor of choice and QCA. Fortune 1000 customers expect this level of compliance and are supporting these industry leaders because they have proven themselves to be serious about protecting their clients' brand equity. The QCA Distributor Advocacy Council participants have been engaged early and often with QCA, and they are continuing to vote with their purchase orders and by including QCA Accredited Suppliers in their preferred supplier programs and events. We look forward to continued engagement with our distributor partners and their clients who are driving the demand for compliance solutions. QCA now has nearly $3 billion worth of industry support behind it and continues to establish itself as the only proactive comprehensive compliance solution available in our industry."
