Building better solutions and stronger communities

We believe a strong-supplier diversity fosters innovation; adds competitive value to products; improves the ability to manage, market, and maintain a competitive advantage; increases and supports economic development in our business communities; and creates strategic alliances with majority suppliers who have a commitment to grow minority suppliers. We believe in developing mutually beneficial, long-term relationships based on reciprocal trust. To foster that trust, we pursue close and wide-ranging communication with suppliers.
