Optimum procurement from suppliers and group-wide on a global basis.

For companies whose businesses are reliant on various suppliers, reduction of procurement costs for materials and parts is an important issue. In order to increase our cost-competitiveness, we not only ask our suppliers to reduce costs for parts and materials, but also ask equipment and article suppliers to do the same, through partnerships such as alliances and outsourcing agreements. Moreover, we have implemented an e-procurement system to take bids over the Internet from worldwide suppliers, mainly in China, and we are committed to reducing costs through new technology and parts planning activities with upcoming models.

Further, in recent years, we formulated “A Green Purchasing Guideline” in July 2002, and thus, we are currently promoting environment-friendly procurement in cooperation with our suppliers.
