Dedicated to providing food and beverage industry members with even more buying power and purchasing benefits, Quality Chekd Dairies and SECO & Golden “100” Inc. fully integrated their purchasing units as QCS Purchasing, LLC, on Jan. 1, 2005. Allied Purchasing later joined the group in 2008. Each of these organizations has been in business since the early 1940s and is well-respected in the industry.
Since the incorporation of QCS in 2005, annualized purchasing dollars have more than doubled, attributable to the company’s ability to create value by leveraging the buying scale of its membership. At the same time, costs to operate the organization have decreased significantly. These two points make QCS the largest buying organization in its industry, while operating at one of the lowest costs.
The dedicated staff of professionals at QCS Purchasing has more than 110 years of combined dairy and food industry experience. QCS Purchasing president & CEO Ken Klug noted, “The growth that we continue to experience can be directly attributed to the dedication of our team members, the support of our supply partners, as well as the confidence of our owners in QCS to deliver necessary results. We do represent the very best companies in the industry and are very proud and fortunate to be a small part of their success.”
