We view our suppliers as partners in ensuring reliable quality, and therefore establishing a structure for cooperation is essential. To that end, we regularly hold Quality Conferences at which information concerning quality and manufacturing processes is shared and issues are examined. We also sponsor annual Supplier Conferences through dialogue and exchange to build relationships of trust.

We also hold Quality Improvement Activity Workshops, where we explain our purchasing policies to our suppliers in addition to providing them with opportunities to present their case studies of quality improvement methods used by our suppliers. The presentations are used by our suppliers to share information among themselves.
