This year, 3M recognized 15 suppliers – among thousands in its global supply base – for world class performance in providing products and/or services. These suppliers were identified and rated based on strategic spend, contract compliance, actions taken to improve 3M’s relevance and overall supplier performance (quality, delivery, responsiveness, cost, technology roadmaps). An awards ceremony will be held Aug. 4 at the 3M Championship in Blaine, MN.
“Our partnership with 3M is very important to us,” says Paul LeBlanc, vp-Boise Paper. “As we collaborate to develop products, the high level of transparency between our companies allows us to be more innovative and significantly reduces our development cycle time. Across all levels, people at both organizations strive to do the right thing for the end customer, and we appreciate the acknowledgment of that effort.”
“Our suppliers are critical to our ability to execute our business strategies and benefit our customers,” adds Jose Varela, vp-3M Sourcing Operations. “We are fortunate to work with great suppliers who are committed to maintaining a partnership with 3M and helping us service our global customers with the innovative and valuable solutions they expect. It’s important that we recognize our most outstanding suppliers, and that’s what this award is all about.”
