Bridgestone has a clear objective to become “a truly global company” and to achieve “Dan-Totsu (the absolute and clear leader)” in all aspects of its business. To realise this, we must create optimal business eco-systems with the best suppliers in the market, based upon long-term relationships.
The new vision of Bridgestone Procurement reflects this challenge:
Bridging Innovation & Sourcing Sustainable Solutions
We will actively seek partnerships with companies that can bring added value, beyond the requested products and services. Companies that challenge us and the status quo, that propose & deliver innovative solutions. Additionally, suppliers must meet environmental standards and offers will be evaluated on the basis of their sustainability and durability.
Entering into the digital era, Bridgestone will gradually implement digital processes and transactions with its suppliers. For this purpose a new Digital Procurement Platform will be rolled-out throughout all European locations during 2020-2021. This platform will gradually become the main channel for conducting business between Bridgestone and its suppliers providing Indirect Goods & Services.
We hope you will join us as our partner in this era of Digital Procurement.
