 Supplier Diversity


Our Mission

Applied Industrial Technologies actively seeks and encourages the growth of minority and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs), veteran-owned and service disabled veteran-owned businesses, small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, and HUBZone businesses.

Our Policy

Our Supplier Diversity program ensures that diverse businesses have an opportunity to become one of our valued suppliers. Suppliers are assessed and chosen based on the best fit for our customers’ needs. It is our intent to participate in diversity-related community events and to provide training when necessary. This policy applies to all purchases when applicable.
