The Importance of Suppliers

Medtronic suppliers are a key component of our business. It is essential that we partner with suppliers who can help us extend our Mission – to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life. Medtronic has five core tenets around which we manage supplier relationships:

  • Quality
  • Total cost
  • Responsiveness
  • Risk management
  • Innovation

We rely on our suppliers to be innovative in both practices and technology to help us meet our customers’ needs now and in the future.

We aim to create an environment that encourages open communication with our suppliers. It is our goal that our suppliers recognize they are a part of the process and we value their input. We expect that our suppliers act in a way that is ethical and compliant with all regulatory requirements so that the relationship can be continued far into the future.
