Suppliers are critical to our business. They help us to meet the changing needs of our customers, innovate and ultimately achieve our goal to create great living places. We have over 20,000 suppliers - from global raw materials suppliers to small local businesses providing goods and services. We are committed to paying suppliers on time, to agreed terms and working together to mutually succeed.
