At Vista Outdoor, our success is highly dependent upon the efforts and contributions of our suppliers. Therefore, we expect our suppliers to help us to deliver value to our customers by providing Vista Outdoor with the highest quality products delivered on time and at the best value.
Vista Outdoor partners with suppliers with proven capabilities and adherence to quality, cost, and schedule commitments. We believe strongly that critical processes and product characteristics must be controlled statistically so that we can produce repeatable products that consistently meet or exceed requirements at reduced cost. We expect our suppliers to contribute to this commitment by practicing lean six sigma continual improvement philosophies that enable both Vista Outdoor and our suppliers to continually improve our quality, schedule, and costs.
We are committed to conducting business in an ethical manner and we expect our suppliers to have the same level of commitment. Vista Outdoor holds itself to the highest ethical standards and takes pride in a reputation of trust, integrity, and accountability among key stakeholders—employees, suppliers, agents, customers, and shareholders—and we use the Code of Business Ethics, to outline and reinforce our commitment to ethical behavior at every level. We require each and every employee to read, understand, and abide by our Code of Business Ethics. We also strive to develop partnerships with suppliers that agree to adhere to the elements of our code of conduct that support our employees’ efforts.
Our objectives are to nurture our relationships with our suppliers and hold our suppliers accountable for performance and solutions, while actively responding to the socioeconomic needs of our communities through supplier diversity. It is Vista Outdoor’s policy to actively pursue opportunities to assist diversity companies in becoming qualified and valued Vista Outdoor suppliers.
