Basic Purchasing Policy
Growing Together with Mutual Trust and Confidence
We approach suppliers from the viewpoint of growing together with mutual trust and confidence, and we seek to establish long-term activities and relationships that will lead to perpetual growth for both sides. Consequently, we strive to foster close communication between us and our suppliers, and we view building trust with them as critical.
Open and Fair Competition and Selection
We offer an open and fair playing field to every company that wishes to do business with us. When selecting our suppliers, we hold discussions and seek common ground from a variety of perspectives, including quality, technology, costs, and delivery time, as well as the proposals they make, their attitude toward improvements, and their environmental efforts. We also look for willingness to cooperate with site inspections in accordance with the needs of our customers. One particular requirement is that our suppliers pass relevant certifications for specific critical safety processes.
Promoting Foreign Purchasing
In accordance with our motto, “from Thailand to the world,” we proactively engage in local procurement and purchasing from suppliers outside Japan.
Our purchasing activities are conducted in strict compliance with the relevant laws and regulations.
We handle confidential information about our suppliers obtained through our purchasing activities with the same care as our we do own confidential information, and we never disclose it to third parties or use it for any other purpose without the supplier’s consent. We also request that our suppliers handle our own confidential information with that same level of care.
