3M values our supplier relationships and aims to recognize outstanding performance that enables 3M to be a relevant player in the marketplace and share in the Company's vision. Our Supplier of the Year (SOY) award program seeks to recognize those elite suppliers that help us succeed in accomplishing our Vision of 3M Technology Advancing Every Company, 3M Products Enhancing Every Home and 3M Innovation Improving Every Life.
Each year, 3M supplier professionals in our Global Sourcing organization will nominate exemplary suppliers to be recognized for world class performance in 6 different categories for products and/or services. Suppliers are identified and rated based on strategic spend, contract compliance, actions taken to improve 3M’s competitiveness and overall supplier performance (quality, delivery, responsiveness, cost, technology roadmaps).
In addition to awards being given to exemplary suppliers that support certain category areas (i.e. Raw Materials, Outsource Manufacturing, Services), we are also recognizing superior suppliers in these three categories:
