It is our mission to make Rolls-Royce the first choice for power systems, products and services, allied with being trusted to deliver excellence to our customers and investors. In the pursuit of a world-class supply chain, Rolls-Royce has very high expectations of its suppliers.
To this end, the Group has purchasing policies aimed at establishing and maintaining world-class supply chains for all products and services it buys through the development and deployment of comprehensive commodity strategies.
Please visit the Global Supplier Portal for the information suppliers need to manage their operations effectively.
Cash flow is vital for every business and never more so than in today’s challenging economic times. To assist our suppliers we have launched a scheme called Supplier Finance programme.
This will inject additional funds/working capital into the external supply chain. It is an entirely voluntary facility which will allow suppliers to receive cash early for Rolls-Royce invoices, whilst Rolls-Royce continue to pay to existing terms.
It utilises facilities arranged between ourselves and Citibank, and provides a competitive “pay as you use” source of funds.
If you would like to know more, or are interested in joining the scheme visit the Citibank website or talk to your local Rolls-Royce Purchasing contact.
Integrity, reliability, and innovation, are core values by which we achieve our corporate objectives. At Rolls-Royce, we know that successfully delivering to our customer and shareholder expectations and requirements comes, in part, from working with a diverse range of suppliers that share these same values.
The mission of our small business program is to proactively partner with all types of highly skilled small businesses. We recognise that integrating all types of businesses into our overall supply chain allows us to tap into a variety of talent that can provide competitive advantage. We foster an environment where long term success is achieved by sponsoring, mentoring, and ensuring small businesses have the opportunity to compete for a fair share of our vast supply chain opportunities. As we continue to develop a supply chain that reflects the diversity of our customer base and communities we operate in, we celebrate the differences that make us strong.
It is important to note that this Supplier Diversity program is specific to Rolls-Royce North America.
