Promotional Products: The Importance of Transparency and the Supply Chain
These audits help us very much in the respect that it shows our clients and the industry at large that we are proactive and supportive of not only making sure that anything that's manufactured overseas and brought to the United States is compliant, but it's also to show that we're a part of the greater good for the entire industry, and that we stand behind an issue if it did happen. It definitely gives our clients a lot of reassurances and we think that's part of the reason they want to work with LeaderPromos.
It's always great catching up with Stephanie and the work she and her team at LeaderPromos is doing. It's always innovative and some of the best in the business.

If you have questions for Stephanie, comments about transparency in the supply chain, the importance of audits or anything else discussed here, leave a note in the comments. We'd love to hear your thoughts on these issues.
