SumiRiko/Sumitomo Riko‘s supply strategy is to build a long lasting relationship with all suppliers, in a win win solution, to ensure strong communication and support in all areas of our business.
We’re interested in working with suppliers that can support new product introduction through the concept and prototype stage, up to and including the viable business stage of pilot scale to full production. With this in mind we envision that suppliers with the ability to support design and development will play a key role in product development and evaluation.
Our Suppliers are required to have active certification for ISO 9001:2015 and are encouraged to obtain IATF 16949:2016 certification and maintain it during the business relationship with SumiRiko/Sumitomo Riko. Evidence of this certification must be provided to us in the initial supplier evaluation process.
