Suppliers are strong contributors to Arkema success.
Hence, we are constantly looking for qualified partners who:
- Share our Core Values
- Have customer satisfaction at heart as we do
- Demonstrate a continuous improvement approach
- Commit to a long-term relationship
and, naturally, ensure on-time deliveries of high-quality products and services, provide a 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, quality management, and health and safety considerations.
In the context of relationships with suppliers and subcontractors, and in order to drive continuous improvement, purchasers regularly conduct performance assessments, benchmarking, and feedback sessions.
