Supplier
partnerships

A more responsible value chain requires long-term and equitable relationships with reliable suppliers. Manitou shares its commitments for best practices with its suppliers to enable everyone to remain efficient and innovative.

In practice

In parallel with the Responsible Purchasing Charter deployed to all suppliers, Manitou Group proposes that its suppliers evaluate their own performance in various areas (CSR policy, payment conditions, balance of the relationship, etc.) by means of the reverse quotation system.

Dealer
partnerships

Manitou Group operates in a variety of territories and aims to meet specific local needs. To contribute to the vitality of these territories, the group encourages its network of end customers and dealers to contribute to local CSR actions. Manitou also engages in regular dialogue with regional stakeholders and shares its own responsible practices.

Each year, sales teams involve dealers around the world in civic projects. Manitou Australia links its local dealers to its Modified Rugby Program (MRP) partnership, which gives children with learning disabilities an understanding of and opportunity to practice this new form of tactile rugby.
