Vendor Compliance Guidelines

Effective January 1, 2019

Introduction

Since 1991, Stonewall Kitchen, LLC (SK) has been committed to providing superior quality products and service to our customers. As part of this commitment, we are constantly seeking new ways to improve the quality of offerings to our customers. Through better communication with our vendors, our efforts to improve quality will be mutually beneficial. With this goal in mind, we have created these guidelines to ensure the use of the fastest and/or most cost-effective method to ship and process our products.

The Vendor Compliance Guidelines detail the information needed for packing, labeling, shipping and invoicing products. These guidelines have been established to provide efficient and effective processing of receipts to our receiving locations. Non-compliance with these guidelines may result in significant processing delays, including payment of invoices, increased labor costs and charge backs.

As a Vendor/Vendor Representative, you are responsible for distributing these Vendor Compliance Guidelines throughout your company/the company you represent as necessary to ensure compliance.

Thank you,
