Osmose understands and appreciates the importance of diverse suppliers and is committed to pursuing business relationships with such enterprises through our supplier diversity program. The goal of this program is to promote the utilization and development of small and minority businesses both within our organization and industry. In 2017, Osmose spent over $7.3M with diverse suppliers and it is our ongoing mission to actively seek and offer minority and women owned businesses opportunities to work with us while, at the same time, expanding their own business.
For purposes of this program, Osmose defines a minority business as a for-profit enterprise physically located in the United States, which qualifies for one or more of the following classifications: minority-owned business, woman-owned business, small business (including small disadvantaged, woman, and veteran/service disabled veteran). We prefer to do business with diverse companies that hold recognizable certification, which helps ensure the integrity of our supplier diversity initiative.
We are dedicated to promoting meaningful participation by MWBEs in our course of business and invite you to contact us for additional information as we continue our efforts to identify opportunities that will expand our program.
