Supplier Diversity

SUPPLIER DIVERSITY

Our objective is to develop a diverse supplier base of quality, delivery, and price performance leaders. We’re focused on doing business in a better way that makes the world more productive and sustainable. We are also committed to developing, growing and sustaining relationships with diverse suppliers who share our values of honesty, integrity, fairness and environmental compliance in every business transaction.

ETHICS

We believe in conducting business with honesty and integrity, worker safety, environmental and social responsibility. Therefore, all Rockwell Automation suppliers must abide by the standards in our Supplier Code of Conduct.

LOCALIZATION

We source the majority of our supply needs with businesses in the regions closest to our customer and manufacturing sites.  This localization strategy has contributed to reduced lead times and a record-setting on-time shipping performance while reducing transport distances and related environmental impacts. Nearly 70 percent of total supplier spend is in the regions where we manufacture products.

DIVERSITY

We actively seek out suppliers that excel in their sectors and reflect today’s diverse marketplace as part of our commitment to provide all businesses with equal access to supply opportunities.  A diverse supplier base provides us with the best and broadest range of experience and expertise.  This not only allow us to better meet our customer needs but also to contribute to the economic growth of communities where we conduct business.
