NovAtel values a strategic relationship with our Suppliers in partnering to meet our customers’ expectations. As a Lean company, NovAtel believes in continuously eliminating waste so that every step in our manufacturing process adds value to our customers. From a Supply Chain perspective, we strive to procure the right parts at the right quantities at the right time to support production and meet our customers’ expectations.
We view our supply base as an integral part of our value creation process, and we strive to maintain strong long-term partnerships with our suppliers.
We believe in taking a process and risk-based approach and this is reflected in our requirements and best practices described in this document.
