TRW Automotive's global Purchasing organization is chartered with developing sustainable global competitive advantage for TRW and its suppliers.

It is the policy of TRW Automotive to source key commodities and components on the basis of a cooperative relationship with its suppliers. The joint aim is to achieve total quality, and a lean supply chain, while achieving "world class" performance for our customers. We provide feedback to suppliers on these initiatives in the Vendor Information Network - the VIN system.
