Doing Business with ABB
Building relationships with best-in-class suppliers is essential for our success
As part of ABB’s values we require our suppliers to work in a way that is ethically, socially, environmentally and economically responsible. What this means in practice is outlined in our Supplier Code of Conduct.
We also recognize that we have a role to play in helping our suppliers' development, so that we can contribute to each other’s long-term success. Therefore, ABB provides assistance to our suppliers in areas such as continuous process improvement, lean manufacturing, quality management and sustainability. ABB contributes to these areas by customizing development plans, sharing resources and technologies, exchanging best practices and monitoring performance.
ABB’s structured approach to supplier qualification, performance evaluation and development enables long-term supplier success and, ultimately, contributes to better support for our customers.
To help us to achieve all of these goals, we have partnered with Achilles, a supply chain specialist that has designed a global system to identify, collect, validate, store and maintain information regarding potential and existing suppliers.
