Suppliers are strong contributors to Arkema success.
That’s why we are constantly looking for qualified partners who:
- Share our Core Values
- Have at heart customer satisfaction as we do
- Demonstrate continuous improvement approach
- Commit to long-term relationship
and, of course, ensure on-time deliveries of high-quality products and services, provide competitive offering, comply with laws and regulations, and encourage sustainable development.
The procurement departments carry out preliminary assessments before entering into any business relationships with suppliers or subcontractors, as part of the selection process. These assessments are based on robust criteria that notably include corporate social responsibility issues, quality management, health and safety considerations.
In the context of relationships with suppliers and subcontractors, and in order to drive continuous improvement, purchasers conduct regularly performance assessments, benchmarks and feedback sessions.
