It's in our Orange DNA to look for suppliers that live up to our outstanding quality standards, and this is what our CORE Brilliance supplier programme is based around.
CORE Brilliance Programme
To make truly great products, we look to our suppliers to share the same values we do.
We want to make sure that every product that goes out of the door lives up to our outstanding quality promise. This is why we have created the CORE Brilliance programme, a supplier programme that educates and empowers our suppliers to provide quality components for our products.
We recognise suppliers when they exceed our expectations in regards to quality, delivery, relationships, and technical support. Every year, a cross-functional team reviews supplier performance and we hold a Supplier of the Year Awards ceremony at our Head Office in Hamilton, New Zealand.

In 2010 the U.S. Government signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act''). The goal of this Act is to ensure minerals used in global supply chains do not directly or indirectly benefit terrorism, armed groups and perpetrators in the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighbouring countries. The minerals specified are tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold, known as 3TG. If these minerals are identified as supporting armed groups, they become known as Conflict Minerals.
At Gallagher we do not source directly from smelters or mines. To the best of our knowledge, our supplier network does not source conflict 3TG minerals from any areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or any neighbouring countries where the revenue of such material may directly or indirectly finance armed conflict and civil war.
Recognising that the conflict mineral issue is a serious problem in the global supply chain, it is our expectation that suppliers to Gallagher take all practical steps to avoid using conflict minerals through responsible procurement, supporting this through their own statement and a signed declaration.
As a socially responsible company, Gallagher is committed to respecting human rights and has concern for the well-being of people and communities. We conduct business fairly and ethically, and we are committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals worldwide.
