SMS, a TRIGO company

Supplier Management Solutions, LLC (SMS) is the leader in the Commercial and Defense Aerospace Industry providing global supplier management, development, and quality services through “boots on the ground” on-site management to drive systemic changes that improve quality and sustain on-time delivery and overall supplier performance.

With SMS’ U.S. Headquarters between Los Angeles and San Diego, in Temecula, CA, Steve M. Clarke, SMS’ CEO, and team come with over forty (40) years of industry experience. Together, SMS understands the current dynamics and urgent need for a more efficient and cost-effective supply chain management solution. SMS' management team and field resources, Delivery Assurance Specialists (DAS), Supplier Development Specialists (SDS), Quality Assurance Specialists (QAS) and Sr. Quality Engineers (SQE), perform their role working as an extension of their customers, with a domestic presence in over 40 states and 24+ countries internationally. SMS’ business model provides a customized, fully integrated service solution along the customer's value stream which results in quality parts arriving “on-time, every time.”

As of January 2019, TRIGO Group, with a headquarters in Paris-France, has acquired Supplier Management Solutions. This transaction was a major step in TRIGO’s development strategy into the value-added global Aerospace supply chain and quality management services market, while expanded TRIGO’s U.S. footprint by leveraging SMS’ relationships and domestic presence. It has strengthened SMS’ position as a quality partner in the aerospace supply chain by providing global coverage in addition to an extended service offering into quality inspection and conformity management. The integration of the two companies has provided our current and future customers with a unique combined full-service solution for both On-Time-Delivery and On-Quality-Delivery performance for the Aerospace supply chain.
