JM Supplier Guidelines

Download JM Supplier Guidelines:  English   Deutsch   Slovensky   Chinese 中文

It is the goal and commitment of Johns Manville (JM) and its employees to adhere to the highest standards of ethical behavior in our business conduct, activities and relationships. At all times and in all situations, ethical behavior will supersede all other considerations. As a supplier, it is JM’s expectation that you understand, respect, and comply with these standards. Any violation of these standards will result in a loss of future business engagements with JM.

Sourcing Guidelines

It is JM’s intent to constantly strive to improve its productivity and processes, and to reduce total finished product costs wherever practical. Only by so doing will JM maintain its position as a "World Class" supplier. JM expects all of its suppliers to take similar, responsible actions to ensure the competitive pricing of their products. The competitive quoting process can often provide a better product or service at the lowest total cost to JM. JM personnel will, therefore, make every attempt to encourage competition, while simultaneously working diligently to build long lasting relationships with qualified best-in-class suppliers. Suppliers will be evaluated to determine the extent of their capabilities and qualifications to compete prior to being invited to quote on major JM purchases. This includes conforming to Environmental Health and Safety Standards as well as applicable Labor Laws. It is JM’s expectation that our Suppliers will not employ child labor. JM will not knowingly engage a Supplier that directly, or indirectly through a third party, employs illegal child labor in any way. Suppliers whose performance, quality and technical capability do not keep pace with JM’s needs will be removed from the suppliers list for future consideration until they have demonstrated to JM’s satisfaction they have made the necessary improvements to be reconsidered for a future supply position. In dealing with potential suppliers, JM employees adhere to the confidentiality commitments set forth in both JM’s Code of Conduct as well as any applicable nondisclosure/confidentiality agreement. JM employees, therefore, will not disclose any JM non-public information to potential suppliers unless there is a fully executed non-disclosure agreement in place protecting such information.
