Genzyme's manufacturing operations rely on a variety of critical supplies, which we source from a select group of external vendors around the world. Our top priority in selecting suppliers is product and service quality. We also have a supplier diversity program to promote business relationships with quality-driven minority-owned vendors who align with our cost and service standards.
Our working relationships with suppliers are generally governed by our standard purchase order terms and conditions, which vary by country:
Some suppliers may have a separate supply or service agreement signed by Genzyme, in which case the terms and conditions set forth in that agreement control any conflicting terms and conditions in the purchase order.
