Supplier Information: Purchasing Philosophy
Our Purchasing Philosophy
Spartan is committed to customer satisfaction and the highest level of personal service. We work closely with our suppliers to reach these goals. We strive to procure high quality products and services that are delivered on time to support daily operations, but are also innovative and add value to the Spartan product lines.
Strong supplier partners help Spartan achieve continuous improvement in all facets of our operations and ensure we succeed in today’s competitive environment. Selected criteria that are important to us include:
- Consistent Quality
- Cost Competitiveness
- Customer Service Support
- Environmental Protection
- Excellent Communication
- Innovation & Technical Competence
- On-Time Delivery
- Process Control & Capacity
Spartan operates in an environment of custom products (lower volumes) and flexible manufacturing (short lead times), so suppliers that are successful with us pattern this model. We purchase value, taking into account and analyzing many components. Suppliers that consistently exceed our always tightening requirements are recognized with increased business opportunities.
