Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), an independent, non-governmental accreditation organization dedicated to helping companies provide safe products, has expanded its Distributor Advocacy Council (DAC) with the addition of Quincy, Massachusetts-based distributor Stran Promotional Solutions (PPAI 161542).

The council’s mission is to elevate the standards by which firms that import and manufacture products are consistently delivering safe, high quality, socially compliant and environmentally conscientious merchandise, and its affiliates recognize QCA as the industry standard.

“The team at Stran has always taken the role of protecting our client’s brand seriously,” says Andy Shape, president of Stran Promotional Solutions. “We focus on all aspects of brand protection, from meeting brand guidelines on every product that we source to exceeding all product safety and testing standards. Joining such an elite group of forward-thinking companies on the Distributor Advocacy Council will allow us to continue to share best practices and help drive greater compliance across our industry.”
