Quality Procedures

Serenity currently manages over 80,000 line items which represents over 48 million dollars of electronic components. All of these components originated from corporate agreements with four large American OEM's. Therefore, these components have gone through rigid incoming inspections. With the onslaught of inferior products offered in the marketplace today, this should be a comforting fact.

The following procedures are immediately implemented upon receiving a purchase order and/or quotation that is not in our stock and has to be bought by Serenity Electronics:
