Be Successful With Us

The Volkswagen Group values its suppliers as one of the most important elements in our overall mission of designing and building superior, efficient and responsible automobiles for the 21st century.

We especially value our supplier companies which are founded in, or embrace cultural diversity in ownership, management and staff. The Volkswagen Group has a long, proud tradition of diversity and inclusion in our own company and we strongly encourage that policy in our suppliers.

Step one, your company's registrar must complete the short supplier self-registration form.

The information we request includes general company information and the product and/or services you supply. Your registrar will also be asked to provide general personal data such as name, position and contact information. The registrar does not necessarily have to be the managing director or key account manager.

The Volkswagen Group utilizes internet technology to establish and manage successful collaborations with all members of our supplier network. We manage almost all our procurement via the internet.

The tools to initiate successful supplier relationships are found at, such as online catalogs, online inquiries and forms, online negotiation information and online capacity management information.

Once our suppliers obtain access to Volkswagen Group's B2B supplier platform, the advantages become apparent: administrative tasks can be streamlined and expedited, planning details can be determined accurately, and opportunities for collaboration can be clearly understood and communicated.

This advanced system results in competitive advantages for both the Volkswagen Group and our suppliers.


To date, nearly $686 million in local contracts have been awarded by the city, state and Volkswagen. This includes more than $238 million with local suppliers for the New Midsized Sedan and $98 million with Volkswagen contractors and subcontractors for plant construction, with another $230 million over the next 20 years.
