Toyota and the management of suppliers


The Toyota Way has revolutionized the industrial world. This approach has often been copied by the deployment of principles such as waste reduction, one piece flow, standardization of tasks, 5S, 5 whys, etc. However, the stable long term relationship that Toyota has been able to build with its network of suppliers remains unique. To date this practice is rarely adopted, even in the automotive industry.

To understand the keys to the success of Toyota's relationship with its suppliers, Marris Consulting is organizing a webinar hosted by Reynald Debaut-Henocque, ex-Vice-President Production of Toyota Motor Manufacturing France (TMMF) who was a key actor over the past 20 years of TMMF's amazing successes and Philip Marris, CEO of Marris Consulting.

Reynald will explain how, in "only" 10 years, Toyota built a network of over 200 suppliers of which over 80% are European and over 50% are French that now deliver unbeleivable quality at a very competitive cost. They have not changed a major supplier in the last ten years.

If Toyota does this why don't you?

The end of the webinar is devoted to a questions and answer session.

Reynald Debaut Henocque

Reynald Debaut-Henocque

From 1981 to 1999 he forged a career as Quality Director in equipment manufacturers accompanying the revolution in quality procedures. Its experience has been built not only with European but also North American manufacturers. In 1993, he set up the continuous improvement branch in Europe of the BTR group. In 1999, he joined the Toyota group as Quality Director of TMMF (Toyota Motor Manufacturing France) and succeeded in obtaining the 1st Warranty Awards when the Yaris “made in France” was launched.

He then broadened his horizons by occupying the positions of Production Director then Supply Chain Director and participated in the success of an industrial site which took up the challenge of producing B-segment vehicles in France, more than 3 million in 20 years. As Vice-President of Production, he then prepared the site to produce 3 million vehicles in 10 years. He was one of the key players in the success of Toyota Motor Manufacturing France.
