1.0 Overview 1.1 Introduction Res Manufacturing Company was founded in 1907 as an innovative producer of stamped metal components and subassemblies. Locally and nationally recognized for excellence, Res focuses on providing engineered solutions for its customers' metal stamping, welding, and assembly challenges. 1.2 Mission Statement "Our mission is to be the best-in-class provider of precision metal stampings, assemblies and value-added services. Res will operate safely, ethically and profitably for the benefit of its associates, shareholders, suppliers, and customers."

1.3 Quality Policy Res embraces the requirements documented in the ISO/TS 16949 Technical Specification as activities that add value for our customers. Res is dedicated to continually improving customer satisfaction through enhanced product quality and the reduction of waste created by non-value added activities. 1.4 Purpose Res Manufacturing Company‟s relationship with its suppliers is one of the most important aspects of its operations. This relationship must be mutually beneficial for the continued success and profitability of each party. Understanding both parties responsibility to quality conformance is necessary. This manual describes the quality involvement that Res Manufacturing Company expects of its suppliers and also describes the general procedures used in assuring quality of purchased materials and components. Res Manufacturing Company will continue to seek better methods to assure quality. This manual is provided to aid suppliers in meeting the various terms and conditions of our purchasing documents, engineering specifications, engineering drawings and related requirements; not alter or replace them. This Supplier Manual is part of the purchase order contract issued by Res Manufacturing Company. The supplier‟s obligations may only be modified or waived by Res in writing. 1.5 Scope Our supplier quality manual applies to all current and future suppliers who provide Metals, Purchased Components, Purchased Parts, or Outside Services used by Res Manufacturing. The manual outlines minimum requirements, and defines the quality performance required of each supplier‟s quality management system in providing products or services. 1.6 Confidentiality Agreement The Supplier and Res Manufacturing must have signed non-disclosure agreement on file. This document is located at 7.0 of this manual, and can be printed separately. 1.7 Maintenance of Document This document and attachments will be available on Res Manufacturing website, Any revisions made to this document will generate a change in revision date.

Deliveries should not be made to individuals or departments. Seller‟s responsibility for all risks for loss or damage to the items or material to be delivered under the purchase order will be governed by standard UCC terms indicated on the PO form. 2.3 Receipt Inspection All metal, purchased components, purchased parts, or outside services received at Res Manufacturing shall be subject to certification review or physical checking. Failure to meet any criteria, specifications, or dimensional tolerances may result in return of that material at supplier‟s expense, rework at the supplier‟s expense, or scrap. Reference section 4.4 of this document. 2.4 Packaging Requirements and Product Identification Each individual package received at Res will be clearly marked with: 1. Res part number 2. Res Purchase Order number 3. Manufacturing lot number or heat number 4. Date of manufacture 5. Quantity 6. Barcode 2.5 Transportation Guidelines A “Selected Carriers” letter will be maintained by Res Manufacturing Purchasing (Attachment B). This document will specify inbound carriers to be used for each shipment type (small package, LTL, truckload, airfreight). Unauthorized deviation from this list of selected carriers may result in excess freight charge that will be charged back to the supplier.

3.0 Purchase Order Terms and Conditions 3.1 Purchase Order Number The purchase order number must be shown on each package, packing slip, and invoice of Seller. Res Manufacturing reserves the right to return to Seller any invoice that does not conform. Payment shall not be rendered unless Res Manufacturing receives an invoice showing the purchase order number. 3.2 Packing Slips Packing Slips must be included in all shipments and must state the Res purchase order along with the Res part number.


3.3 Quantities The specific quantity ordered must be delivered in full quantity and may not be changed without Res Manufacturing Company‟s written consent. Any unauthorized quantity is subject to rejection and will be returned at the supplier‟s expense. Res assumes normal industry standards. 3.4 Price If the price is not stated in the purchase order it is agreed upon that the items or material covered by this purchase order will be billed at the price last quoted or the supplier‟s current list price whichever is lower. The purchase order may not be filled at a higher price than last quoted or previously invoiced without specific buyer‟s written consent. The price stated in the purchase order includes all applicable Federal, State, and Local taxes and will not be changed as a result of failure of the supplier to include applicable tax or as a result of any increase in supplier‟s tax liabilities. Price change requests need 60-day advanced written notice. It is the intention of Res to not grant price increase; but instead to work together to drive out waste which lowers cost and provides more value to our customers. No additional charges of any kind, including but not limited to surcharges, charges for boxing, packing, cartage or other extras will be allowed unless specifically agreed to in writing by Res Manufacturing Company. 3.5 Payment Payment terms are Net 45 unless stated on individual PO. 3.6 Inspection Res expects that all purchased material will be received defect-free.

4.0 Supply Base Management 4.1

Supplier Evaluation

Suppliers of items or services are evaluated and selected based on the quality, availability, and price of their product. New suppliers may be asked to provide any or all of the following:  Copy of quality assurance manual  Current certificate of quality system registration from an accredited registrar.  Description of relevant processes, process equipment, and machines.  Professional resumes (if engineering or consulting is involved).  Samples of similar products and/or workmanship (if applicable).  References. Purchasing and Quality will evaluate the submitted information and may request a visit to audit the supplier‟s quality system and/or production processes. Suppliers are placed into one of the following categories in the Supplier Code Log based on evaluations and assessments. Supplier status may be changed after review by Purchasing and Quality with corrective actions completed as necessary (per QOP 06-02). APPROVED (A) – Products or services may be ordered from this supplier. PROVISIONAL (P) – New suppliers or suppliers with poor quality history as determined by the Supplier Evaluation Process may be considered PROVISIONAL. New suppliers can be moved to APPROVED after an evaluation period established by Quality and Purchasing. Res can still order from suppliers in this status due to poor quality; however the supplier has been presented with corrective action that must be implemented within 60 days. Res may impose special receiving inspection requirements for provisional suppliers. NOT APPROVED (N) – The supplier is not qualified due to poor audit results or performance history. Products or services may not be purchased from this supplier. 4.2

Supplier Certification Requirements

Res embraces the requirements documented in the ISO/TS 16949 Technical Specifications as value added for our customers. In order for us to meet these requirements our suppliers of automotive metals, components, parts, or services are required to be certified to the current TS 16949 or ISO 9001 standard. If a supplier has already achieved the appropriate certification a current copy the certificate from an accredited registrar must be provided to Res Manufacturing. If a supplier is not certified to the appropriate standard they may only be used with a waiver from Res‟s customer. 4.3

Supplier Performance Reporting System

100% on-time delivery performance and 0% nonconformance rates are required and periodically monitored by the Purchasing and Quality based on their impact on our ability to meet customer requirements. The “Supplier Performance Report” is used to communicate these supplier‟s performance ratings and if poor delivery or quality is noted corrective action is requested.


4.4 Rejected Materials Rejected material will be communicated to supplier within a reasonable amount of time. A corrective action report in 8D format will be expected from the supplier. Due date of steps are indicated below. The supplier is expected to quarantine and disposition rejected material within 2 days after notification. Root cause analysis and final corrective action should occur within 2 weeks after initial notification. Res intends to recover costs resulting from a supplier non-conformance. These costs will include, but are not limited to reasonable sorting costs, premium shipment costs to receive new material or in expedited shipping to our customer in order to maintain delivery schedule, and any charges related to rework or scrap activities. Res will attempt to notify the supplier of options to disposition the rejected material we have in-house but the timeframe may not allow for this. 4.5 Late Shipment Policy The supplier will be responsible for all premium freight charges to our customer if any shipment arrives later than the agreed upon due date and causes interruption to Res Manufacturing Company‟s 100% delivery performance requirement to our customer. 4.6 New Part Approval/PPAP requirements Suppliers are expected to adhere to AIAG APQP/PPAP guidelines & methods. Deviation from these methods must be pre-approved by Res Manufacturing Quality Department.
