Managing supplier relations
Naval Group is always on the lookout for new partners with potential in terms of improving operational and economic performance, innovation as well as international development to meet local production challenges. The Naval Group supplier panel is configured keeping in mind each supplier’s impact on the company’s performance and development. For each supplier in the panel, a lead buyer manages the relationship for the group.
From pre-selection to supplier development
Naval Group monitors the market and accepts spontaneous applications to identify prospective suppliers.
Suppliers are preselected and their potential for collaboration is evaluated based on Naval Group's needs.
The preselected supplier submits a pre-qualification application enabling Naval Group to validate the supplier's capability to meet requirements in terms of compliance, Occupational Health and Safety and Environment (OHSE), quality, technical know-how, industrial capacity, etc.
A technical and/or quality audit completes the qualification process.
Supplier performance is analysed annually according to group criteria: technical know-how, quality, cost, lead time, OHSE, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), etc.
Areas for progress shall be identified should the assessment of their performance reveal shortcomings.
Naval Group selects suppliers with a potential for development according to their importance and their criticality for the company’s activities as well as the results of their annual review.
Naval Group supports these suppliers in drafting their development and quality improvement plans.
