Lectrus works with suppliers who deliver the best quality, value and service at the most competitive cost. Our top suppliers are innovative and dedicated to driving continuous improvement in their operations. Together, we address all aspects of cost reduction, waste elimination and efficiency improvement in today’s dynamic global environment.
As an integrated operating company, Lectrus harnesses our size, strength and scope through common tools and processes to drive change and leverage best practices across the organization. To this end, the Supply Chain Management (SCM) group actively assists in improving profitability and accelerating the realignment and global consolidation of our businesses. Our efforts benefit our customers, shareholders and the communities in which we live and work.
Supplier Self Assessment
What is the purpose of the Lectrus Supplier Self Assessment?
- The aim of the Lectrus Supplier Self Assessment is to introduce potential suppliers to our company. Completion of the Supplier Self Assessment does not guarantee that you will become an approved Lectrus supplier. Lectrus Corporate Supply Chain Management makes all buying decisions for all programs.
What happens with my Supplier Self Assessment?
- Lectrus Corporate Supply Chain Management will review your application. If your company meets our qualifications, you will be put in touch with the appropriate buyer. The buyer may schedule a meeting to discuss business opportunities or may simply send an email requesting more information. Once a buyer makes the decision to purchase a product, you will receive an email with the next steps or an explanation as to why the product was not a fit for Lectrus at this time.
We're glad you chose to explore doing business with us. We are committed to providing the highest quality product and service for our customers. By working closely with our suppliers, we uncover ways to keep cost down and pass savings along to our customers. We recognize the effort it takes to go through the qualification process and we know that we may not be right for every business. Regardless of whether we do business together, we hope your experience with Lectrus will be a worthwhile experience to you and your company. Please keep in mind that issuance of a supplier number does not guarantee purchases of your product. All decisions are made by the purchasing agent with input from sales, project management, engineering and management.
We also carefully analyze a new supplier's ability to ship products in a reasonable amount of time. Late shipments can translate into great losses—both monetarily, industry reputation and customer respect. We expect our suppliers to combine excellent products with on-time deliveries—at the right cost.
Gift and Gratuity Policy
No gifts or gratuities, which have monetary value in excess of $50.00, are to be given or offered in any way to any Lectrus Corporation employee. Suppliers may donate gifts for the purpose of raising funds for charities or non-profit organizations. Gifts or gratuities include, but are not limited to: free goods, kickbacks in the form of money or merchandise, supplier-paid trips, liquor, food products, meals or personal services.
Industry Knowledge and Integrity
We expect our suppliers to be knowledgeable about their industry and each product or service they provide to Lectrus Corporation. We require a high level of communication and integrity from each of our suppliers so that we can better serve our customers.
Equal Opportunity Practices
Lectrus Corporation recognizes cultural differences exist and different standards apply in various countries, but we believe all terms and conditions of employment should be based on an individual's ability to do the job, not on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs. Lectrus Corporation favors suppliers who have a social and political commitment to basic principles of human rights and who do not discriminate against their employees in hiring practices or any other term or condition of work, on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, disability, age or political opinion.
