Innovative product development and distribution is key in an increasingly competitive marketplace, the concept of value creation is more important than ever before. Profit is not just assured by new markets or increased volume. Keeping costs lower than the competition, without losing cutting edge superiority and supply dependability, is the essence to value growth. Purchasing plays an important role. Our mission at Shane Coatings Purchasing, is to deliver substantial, sustainable, competitive advantages for Shane Coatings’ businesses, business to business and retail clients.
We deliver that competitive advantage to these businesses by obtaining the lowest prices for raw or base materials and services. We are always negotiating purchase prices lower than that secured by our competitors. We focus on total expenditure impact. In order to sustain this advantage, we structure our procedures to help our value partner suppliers win, rewarding them with the majority of our business.
Shane Coatings recognizes that suppliers play an essential role in our capability to do business. We desire to create and maintain a healthy working relationship with each of our suppliers. We expect several things from our suppliers. First, that they have national representation or beyond and commitment, participating in all needed geographies and in all available product offerings. Second, we require consistency in supply, in service and in quality. In return we offer our suppliers similar loyalty and our commitment to purchase large volumes nationally. Those volumes will even grow as Shane Coating continues to lead our industry across the broad base of full spectrum coatings, utilizing the most innovative proactive technologies.
