Policies and Procurement

Discover the processes used by OSRAM SYLVANIA's procurement departments.

OSRAM SYLVANIA recognizes its obligation to assist existing and emerging companies in their business efforts.

It is OSRAM SYLVANIA's policy to select and purchase from outside vendors who offer the greatest total value for the products and services to be purchased. Within this general policy, it is also corporate policy to identify, qualify and utilize minority and women-owned business vendors to a degree that will significantly increase their sales to OSRAM SYLVANIA.

At OSRAM SYLVANIA, the strength of our success is based on the innovation and quality of our suppliers. Therefore, we strive to ensure that we have the right balance of cutting edge technology, at the most competitive costs, while also working to procure across all commodity segments, both domestically and globally, in tandem with our Global Procurement Division.

The Procurement Americas organization in particular is responsible for managing supply needs of all OSRAM SYLVANIA business operations, and in both North and South Americas, also manufacturing and service organizations. We are responsible for the complete horizon of sourcing requirements across such diverse commodity groups as raw materials, indirect materials and services, and finished products, to name a few.

This fast-paced, ever changing landscape of Lighting requires our suppliers be moving at "light speed" with us. Can your company meet the challenge?
