Supplier Innovation

Value creation together

We collaborate with the best

Innovation is teamwork

Quality, availability, productivity and innovation along the whole Siemens supply chain make a valuable contribution to our commercial success. This is why we select our suppliers cross-functionally and with great care. They are among the best and most innovative in the marketplace, fulfill our minimum requirements and continue to develop faster than the market. In return, proven suppliers enjoy access to worldwide markets thanks to their collaboration with Siemens, a global technology leader. In addition they can sustainably expand their product, solution and service portfolio and their customer base.

For this reason we are always looking for innovative suppliers who are eager to bring their technological expertise and creativity together with that of our own experts. We integrate this network into our customer projects right from the concept phase. In this way we create a crucial competitive advantage along the value chain.

We rely on partners who join us in driving groundbreaking innovations right from the idea through to the customer.

Siemens SCM provides two digital platforms to bring people and ideas together:

The Supplier Innovation Platform is a virtual exhibition to connect vendors with Siemens experts. We count both on our existing suppliers as well as on companies that wish to become a Siemens supplier in the future.
