Want to be a Michelin Supplier

We appreciate your interest in becoming a supplier to Michelin. Our company has a robust strategic sourcing process. We maintain a short list of preferred suppliers for each of the categories of goods and services we purchase. We have long term contracts in place with significant suppliers. Opportunities to add new suppliers occur occasionally as our business needs change.

After you understand and ensure that your company meets our criteria, you are invited to register your company profile below. Completion of this form does not make you a Michelin supplier. Your company profile will be stored in a searchable database.

If your product or service matches our needs, we will contact you for more information. There is no process in place for you to contact buyers directly. Your company profile will be kept in our database for reference when an opportunity arises for a new supplier.

THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENT HAS SET UP A STRUCTURED PROCESS WHICH HAS SEVERAL PHASES:

  1. INITIAL CONTACT

    The buyer makes initial contact with the supplier and informs them of Michelin's requirements.

  2. SELECTION

    The potential supplier responds to a preliminary evaluation questionnaire including financial, technical, quality, SER & project management information. A benchmarking process according to the supplier's impact including site visits, on-site audits, approval, etc. For Raw Materials and Energy, a technical approval request is required.

  4. CONTRACTUALISING THE RELATIONSHIP
