This paper is an analysis of the situation in Macedonia's 151 companies in terms of the way the company managed effectively and efficiently the suppliers and raw materials and the way it had built business relationships. Analyzing the results of the survey we come to the conclusion of the need of Macedonian companies for the management of suppliers due to market pressure on the as the main driving force, which will lead to: increasing the ability to work and compete on the market, the need for expansion and maintenance of existing markets, increasing the satisfaction of customers / users, suppliers and improving marketing activities. Macedonian managers that are struggling with the survival of their business have difficulty to understand trends in management development with suppliers based on the strategy of TQM. The application of this strategy means that the company needs to manage suppliers together to identify problems, optimize inventory, and to reduce recycle waste, to conserve global non-renewable sources. To achieve sustainable development, Macedonian companies should be exempt from building criteria for selection of suppliers and proactively focus on developing long-term relationships with clients, providing technical support for training to improve processes, product quality and productivity of providers. Keywords: management with suppliers, TQM system, ISO standards, partner relations
