As part of the selection process for new suppliers, we undertake a comprehensive audit of their labour standards to ensure they meet our 'Code of Conduct'; this is carried out by a trusted third party. We demand high performance from all of our suppliers, this includes the completion of any corrective action that may need to be performed. It is through these successful relationships that we can continue to offer value to our customers. Our suppliers offer us quality, accurate product specification and reliable lead times; in return we commit to longterm successful relationships, with regular orders and guaranteed payments.
