Supplier Diversity Program

To Our Prospective Business Partners:

At Life Technologies Corporation, valuing diversity is an integral element of our corporate culture and we are committed to ensuring that this culture of inclusiveness is embedded in all our business practices. One way we accomplish this is through actively working to build and maintain relationships with well qualified small, veteran, minority and women-owned businesses.

Over the years, Life Technologies Corporation has invested in the resources, policies and tools needed to make this vision a reality. We strongly encourage all firms, regardless of size or ownership, to share with us their ideas of how we can work and grow together.

By continually increasing the diversity of our world-class supply chain, Life Technologies Corporation benefits by obtaining the value of the innovative solutions and the fresh business perspective such firms have to offer. They in essence become our partners in maintaining our position as a leader in our industry and in creating value for our stockholders.

But value received is only part of the story. Just as important, by working to expand the field of opportunity, we help create the conditions that stimulate economic growth both across our country and in the communities where we, our customers and our employees live and do business. We know that when this happens, everyone becomes a winner.
