Customers and Suppliers

UTC serves customers in the global aerospace and building systems industries. Our aerospace customers include governments, aircraft manufacturers and airlines. Our building systems customers include architects, building owners and managers, contractors, and property developers.

Our supply chain includes more than 50,000 companies, and in 2010, we spent more than $30 billion on procurement.

UTC Supplier Gold, established in 2008, is a program to facilitate, accelerate and recognize superior supplier operational performance. The Supplier Gold Program recognizes four levels of supplier achievement - Gold (the highest standard), Performing, Progressing, and Underperforming. We expect 75 percent of UTC’s key and critical supplier spend to achieve Gold and Performing by the end of 2016.

We recognize the value of a diverse supplier base and we are committed to integrating and leveraging supplier diversity into the way we do business. We actively seek competitive and innovative minority business enterprises (MBE), women business enterprises (WBE), and small businesses including: veteran, service disabled veteran, small disadvantaged businesses (SDB), and HUBZone. We work with suppliers who will meet high standards for business practices, environmental responsibility and operational excellence. Over the past five years, we spent more than $4 billion with minority and women-owned businesses.
