In the future, we also want to thrill our customers with new ideas and high-quality, high-tech products and services. If we are to do this, we need efficient and reliable suppliers and partners.
Together with our suppliers and partners, we are constantly seeking to improve our products and services. By using new technologies and, with innovative ideas and a marked cost-consciousness, we are laying the foundation for joint success. Our aim in international Supplier Development is to take recourse not only to our own knowledge and skills but also – and increasingly – to the knowledge, expertise, creativity and experience of our suppliers and partners. Together we develop strategies for optimising cooperation – from improvements in the logistics chain via compliance with environmental requirements right up to developing joint innovation and technology road maps.
Our success is based on collaborative efforts with our suppliers and partners. As a company operating on a global scale, we exploit the opportunities on the global procurement markets and assume social responsibility, both in terms of production material and the need for indirect purchasing. This means that we comply with the applicable laws, respect fundamental ethical principles and carry out our business sustainably at all times and in all ways. In line with this strategy, we also expect our suppliers and partners, as well as their employees, to behave responsibly and adhere to the MAN Code of Conduct for suppliers and business partners.
