Wärtsilä’s Supplier Handbook has been updated with the current supplier requirements, such as those pertaining to sustainability, traceability, and business continuity planning.

The renewed Wärtsilä Supplier Handbook can now be downloaded here

Wärtsilä values its suppliers and, as Wärtsilä’s President and CEO Jaakko Eskola says in the handbook’s introduction: “This handbook sets out our expectations for a successful working relationship with our suppliers. We strive for world class performance in quality, delivery, cost, lead-time, solutions and innovativeness. For this we need to have committed suppliers having Wärtsilä as a preferred customer. We believe that this can only be achieved by sharing common goals, and by building a strong business relationship with all of our suppliers.”

“Our ambition is that the handbook triggers continual improve­ment with our suppliers in order to ensure ‘first time right’ quality, as well as the elimination of waste in the supply chain,” comments Pierpaolo Barbone, President, Services & Executive Vice President, Wärtsilä Corporation.

More information on the handbook is available from your contact person at Wärtsilä, from whom hard copies can be obtained effective from November 2016.
