How we work

Needs Analysis

We will be inquiring with you about the following:

  • In order to qualify, suppliers must meet quality criteria, as well as prove business viability.
  • We require samples of the prospective products and conduct inspection and testing as required.
  • The CC Source team will then proceed to discuss pricing models, dependencies, timelines, and enter into negotiation with the potential supplier(s).
