A long lasting partnership…

A long-lasting partnership between Cree and our suppliers is a top priority and we greatly value each relationship. The competitiveness of our suppliers is a strategic core element of Cree and only by collaborating can we optimize the entire value chain and attain a competitive advantage.

A healthy partnership can create opportunities for endless growth potential for both our suppliers and Cree. Below is an overview of key elements and minimum expectations discussed in the Cree Lighting Global Supplier Manual that Suppliers must follow in order to do business with Cree. However, our hope is that suppliers will go above and beyond these expectations. Cree will concentrate on these suppliers and will develop strategic, long-term alliances with key suppliers.
