Responsible supply base manufacturing over one million products worldwide
We have 44,000 reputable suppliers manufacturing over one million products around the world. This gives us access to a diverse and broad range of quality products. Our leading market positions enable our central sourcing teams in each region to leverage our scale and negotiate competitive prices in return for access to our one million customers.
We work with our suppliers to ensure that they are reliable and ethical and that their products are fully compliant with the laws and regulations of the countries in which they and we operate. Each business assesses its suppliers against set criteria to provide protection to both us and our customers in the event of a product failure or breach of regulation in the supply chain. On the rare occasion that a product is faulty, customers have the confidence of knowing that we will support them. We conduct third party background checks on our suppliers for unethical or illegal behaviour.
