Hitachi Zosen Inova > Supplier

Supply Management aims to contribute to the success of Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) by increasing the competitiveness and profitability of its commercial offering from 3rd party suppliers and contractors; and ensuring good quality, sustainable processes and solutions in a time efficient manner.

The principle responsibilities of Supply Management are:

In all cases Supply Management ensure a fair and unbiased approach to Supply Markets and decisions pertaining to them. The HZI Purchasing Policy is based upon CIPS (Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply) Purchasing Policy

To accomplish this the department is segmented into 2 main work areas:

  • Category Management – responsible for the proactive management of key spend categories and their resulting Purchases (e.g.: Installation & Erection, Mechanical, Electrical & Controls, Indirects such as IT, Telecoms, Travel, Office Equipment & Furniture).
  • Project Procurement Management – responsible for ensuring the optimal management for supplies and services on client projects, ensuring site specific Terms & Conditions, liaising with suppliers per project needs, trouble shooting and claims management as required.

In addition, Supply Management drives the overall management of approved Suppliers, their selection, ongoing assessment and development where required.

Hitachi Zosen INOVA AG (HZI) requires all third-party Suppliers (including contractors and any contractor-related party) to maintain the highest standards of professional conduct and integrity in their business dealings, not only with regards to HZI, but also in their relations with other suppliers, customers, employees, competitors and communities.
