Aichi Steel is looking for excellent raw materials, materials, equipment, and components needed in the manufacture of specialty steel, forged products, electronic functional materials and components, and magnetic products from all over Japan and around the world.
1. Global and open fair trading
Aichi Steel provides its potential suppliers with procurement information both domestically and internationally as well as opportunities for open and fair trading.
We review all our business dealings and make a comprehensive judgement based on quality, technology, cost, and timeliness, while also considering the health of management and orientation/systems towards ongoing improvement.
2. Mutual development based on mutual trust
Careful communication with our suppliers builds and maintains trust as a base for growing with our business partners as the basic posture for efforts for shared results. We announced the “Declaration of Partnership Building” in December 2020.
3. Legal compliance
We comply with laws and regulations related to our procurement activities and take care to manage the confidential information of our partners.
4. Green procurement efforts
Since the establishment of our Environmental Charter in 1996, in every stage of our business activities we consider environmental conservation and make ongoing efforts for improvement. As part of these efforts, in 2003 we also established Green Procurement Guidelines. We give priority in purchasing from suppliers that are actively working on environmental conservation efforts and purchase products with the lowest environmental impact possible.
