Welcome to the Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation Supplier Zone.
In today's business environment, only companies that understand the customer needs across the entire value chain become market leaders. At Smurfit-Stone, our approach to supplier relationships is simple: we rely on our suppliers to provide consistent high quality, cost-competitive materials, goods and services. We also view suppliers as partners - companies capable of helping us confront evolving marketplace conditions and establish a strong platform for growth.
Smurfit-Stone is committed to developing a diverse supplier base. The company’s Supplier Diversity Program is designed to ensure that certified, minority and woman-owned and operated businesses have the opportunity to become Smurfit-Stone suppliers. At Smurfit-Stone, diversity isn’t just about meeting government mandates; diversity is about becoming a more rewarding company to work for and to work with. To sustain our market leadership, we must bring diverse skills and perspectives to the table. Our customers expect nothing less. I invite diverse companies interested in doing business with Smurfit-Stone to email our Procurement Team or learn more about our Supplier Diversity Program by clicking here.
At Smurfit-Stone, our focus is on change and continuity. Our company will continue to be measured by top line growth and bottom line profits. That won’t change. But we’re raising the bar for our business partners. Just as we target customers who value the extra services we provide, we welcome potential suppliers who can support Smurfit-Stone’s operational, inventory management and product development goals. We hope that you find this site a valued resource in future business dealings with Smurfit-Stone, now and in the future.
