If there is a need for your products/services you may be contacted by buying personnel directly or may receive a Request for Information or Request for Quotation (RFQ). We may not have an immediate requirement that matches your capabilities but when a need for your product or service arises your organization may be considered.

If you propose to furnish production (as opposed to overhead) material, then you may be required to undergo a Quality Assurance survey to assess your quality system. If your quality system is approved by other contractors (e.g., ISO 9000 approvals), then please let us know. If needed, arrangements for the survey are coordinated through the responsible buyer. Your process must be found satisfactory before you can be considered as a source for production material.

Acknowledgment: You acknowledge and agree that Colt's Manufacturing Company LLC is providing no guarantee that you may receive any monetary or contractual benefit by being listed on the Competition Database.

Thank you for your interest in doing business with Colt's Manufacturing Company LLC. We look forward to working with you in our efforts to achieve a strong and diverse supplier base.
