Supplier Diversity
JBE Inc. purchases a variety of products and services. We look for well-qualified, performance minded and customer focused suppliers. We expect all of our suppliers to provide the highest quality products and services, at the best cost to the company, in a timely manner and with the best service. Our supplier program supports supplier diversity, which JBE Inc. considers an integral part of its overall business performance.

JBE Commitment
JBE Inc. supports supplier diversity because it provides a distinct competitive advantage. Often diverse suppliers are able to react to the market more quickly and because they are smaller, tend to have lower operating costs. As part of our overall sourcing program, JBE is committed to:

  • • Establishing relationships that make the company cost competitive, while maintaining our reputation for quality
  • • Creating long-term partnerships based on cooperation and continuous feedback
  • • Providing professional, courteous and fair treatment for all current and potential suppliers
