Suppliers and Manufacturers
All suppliers and manufacturers have been pre-approved and selected by us based on our personal past experience with them and following selection criteria:
- Previous experience and past performance with the product/service to be purchased.
- Relative level of sophistication of the quality system, including meeting regulatory requirements or mandated quality system registration (for example, ISO 9001, QS-9000).
- Ability to meet current and potential capacity requirements, and do so on the desired delivery schedule.
- Financial stability.
- Technical support availability and willingness to participate as a “partner” in developing and optimizing design and a long-term relationship.
- The supplier’s track record for business-performance improvement.
- Total cost assessment.
Their products and services are offered inside and outside the Group. In most cases they are packaged in our global solution offer, but in some specific cases we also can provide these products and services separately to customer needs with best price guarantee.
