Doing Business with PCB®
This information will help you understand the processes and procedures for becoming a valued supplier with PCB.
The Importance of Suppliers
MTS Systems Corporation’s suppliers are a key component of our business. It is essential that we partner with suppliers who can help us extend our goals. PCB has four key metrics around which we manage supplier relationship and performance:
- Quality: Meeting established standards
- Cost: Competitively priced goods and services
- Delivery: Shortest amount of time as agreed upon
- Responsiveness: Prompt and open communication
We rely on our suppliers to be innovative in both practices and technology, help us meet our customers' needs, and share the same foundation of ethics, values and guiding principles. Creating effective partnerships are mutually beneficial – now and in the future. We aim to create an environment that encourages open communication with our suppliers. It is our goal that our suppliers recognize they are a part of the process and we value their input. We expect that our suppliers act in a way that is ethical and compliant with all regulatory requirements so that the relationship can be continued far into the future.
