Focus on Quality

Linmarr Associates is ISO 9001-2008 compliant. We have been successfully audited by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) and are approved on DCMA’s Alternate Release Program (ARP). The Alternate Release Program is provided to vendors with only the highest quality ratings. On ARP, our vendor’s products ship based upon Linmarr Associates’ internal quality inspection and internal documentation process. This eliminates any possible delay of having a Government QAR do a secondary inspection of product in most cases (excluding critical safety items).  The end result is faster delivery of quality product and improved cash flow for our vendor partners.
