Doing business with us

We recognise the crucial role diversity plays in our relationships with customers, employees, and suppliers, especially in today's global environment.

We provide procurement opportunities to diverse businesses, including those that are owned and operated by minorities, women, veterans, gays and lesbians. We partner with such businesses committed to providing new technology, innovation, and competitively priced, high quality products and services.

Our sources and provides equal access to procurement opportunities for businesses that are at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by minorities, women, veteran or gay and lesbian entrepreneurs. Strengthening and utilizing diverse firms contributes to the economic growth and expansion of our local communities, while also providing a competitive business advantage by enhancing our supply chain.

Our strategic priorities are to: grow the value of our existing brands and expand our product portfolio; transform our go-to-market model and improve our efficiency and effectiveness; and attract, develop, and retain a highly-talented and diverse workforce. By identifying diverse businesses and developing meaningful business relationships, we have made and will continue to make significant progress towards achieving these priorities.

Diversity and inclusion are essential components of our corporate strategy and we expect our suppliers and our employees in North America and Europe to exhibit a high level of performance towards achieving this objective. Each and every one of us has the responsibility of supporting Supplier Diversity and creating a winning and inclusive culture.
