We strive to enhance our supplier base to reflect the markets we service. Therefore, we are asking for your participation in the solicitation and development of our Diversified Vendor Program.
Vendors who do business with Gicon Pumps & Equipment are expected to demonstrate their commitment to diversity through a plan or program established within their own business operations that quantitatively measures their purchases of goods and services from minority, women-owned, physically challenged and small businesses. Gicon Pumps & Equipment acknowledges and offers opportunities to those majority suppliers who assist Gicon Pump’s diversity policy by utilizing second-tier suppliers.
Gicon Pumps & Equipment seeks the best quality, value, and service at the best cost, from all of our suppliers. It is our desire to select the vendor who delivers the best overall value; value that consists of competitive pricing, technological foresight, information management, and continuous and proactive support of products and services.
Gicon Pumps & Equipment has a strong commitment to diversity within the workplace, as well as Customer and Supplier base. To further strengthen this commitment, Gicon Pumps & Equipment’s Purchasing Department will manage our Supplier Diversity Program, which is being tasked to provide opportunities for minority, women-owned and physically challenged and small businesses. This initiative looks to these suppliers for the high level of quality and services, competitive pricing, technological foresight, and continued proactive support as we do with all our majority suppliers. We request that our majority vendors actively participate in our Supplier Diversity initiative by seeking tier two relationships, committing a percentage of expenditures to minority, women, physically challenged and small businesses. This participation demonstrates added value on the part of our majority vendors.
