Supplier Diversity

At Nabholz, we know that having a diverse group of supply partners makes good business sense. Working with minority-owned and women-owned businesses is essential to helping us meet our high standards for quality products, and ultimately creates more value for our shareholders while strengthening the communities we serve. We strive to build mutually beneficial business relationships and to provide maximum opportunity for diverse suppliers to compete on an equal basis with all other suppliers who meet our product, service, procurement, and contractual requirements.
The competitive advantages of embracing the entire business community will continue to grow, and we want qualified and competitive minority vendors to share in this growth.
