Supplier Diversity Program
Cryotech Deicing Technology recognizes the importance of and is dedicated to the development and utilization of qualified diverse businesses. Cryotech’s supplier diversity mission is to proactively identify, build relationships with, and purchase goods and services from certified minority, women, veteran, and service-disabled owned business enterprises consistent with Cryotech’s core values, while encouraging our 1st tier suppliers to do the same.
It shall be the policy of Cryotech that diverse suppliers will have an equal opportunity to be included in our strategic sourcing and procurement processes. The foundation of our program consists of internal and external deliverables to help ensure program success and create stakeholder value.
Our program focuses on:
- Objective Measurements – establishing and meeting company and departmental goals and objectives that support our overall diversity strategy.
- Tracking and Reporting – monitoring and reporting progress toward achieving our supplier diversity goals and objectives with an emphasis on continuous improvement.
- Training and Education – ongoing and specialized minority supplier development education.
- External Outreach Activities – active involvement with minority development organizations and participation in trade shows and procurement events.
