Buying policy

 In order to meet its targets and those of its customers, Ratier-Figeac is developing a network of suppliers with which we want to foster long term relations.  Our partners are selected on the basis of the following key criteria:

  • Preoccupation with customer service
  • Irreproachable quality
  • Reliable and responsive logistics organization
  • Highly competitive offer, even in an unstable monetary environment
  • Respect for commitments made
  • Culture of on-going improvement (quality, logistics, competitiveness, innovation, etc.)
  • Financial soundness
  • Will to accompany us in our various projects
  • Strategic positioning compatible with our own industrial strategy

Ours’ is an international environment;  we want to work with companies acknowledged for their excellence in their sector. We have a worldwide panel of suppliers, but our selection process takes into account the Total Cost of Acquisition, which leaves opportunities for high-performing local partners.  

The aeronautics sector is demanding, and Ratier-Figeac is too with its suppliers who constitute a fundamental factor in our success. Boosted by our “ACE” culture of Achieving Competitive Excellence – the foundation on which our UTC group is built – our Supply-Chain teams take part in helping our partners to develop through product, process, methodological training actions, etc. 

All of the Ratier-Figeac personnel make a personal commitment by signing our Code of Good Conduct to act in every circumstance according to the values of trust, respect and integrity.
