At Meritor, we believe diversity and inclusion is a competitive advantage that improves the creativity, innovation and performance of our people and our products.
We consider our suppliers an extension of our team; together we create sustainable strength. The value of diverse teams is well documented. They challenge the status quo to bring about positive change, innovate to create value and generally make better decisions.
Currently we recognize the following certified diverse classifications:
A minority-owned business refers to a business that is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, and operated on a daily basis by a minority group. Minority group members are United States citizens who are Asian, Black, Hispanic, or Native American.
A woman-owned business refers to a business that is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, and operated on a daily basis by a woman.
A veteran-owned business refers to a business that is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, and operated on a daily basis by veterans. A veteran is a person who served on active duty with the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard, who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable. Reservists or members of the National Guard called to federal active duty or disabled from a disease or injury incurred or aggravated in the line of duty or while in training status also qualify as a veteran.
A small business refers to a U.S. for-profit business that meets the U.S. Small Business Administration’s established numerical definitions of small business or size standards. For more information, visit the SBA’s page on qualifying as a small business.
