Procurement of materials and spare parts for the needs of the companies is often a major source of problems for the quality of products and services. This paper shows the results of a larger study of Macedonian companies in terms of planning and implementing the philosophy of Total Quality Management (TQM) and building partnerships with suppliers.
The survey results indicate the fact that many of the companies in Macedonia build formal relationship with suppliers that do not deliver the desired results. When there is poor quality of the raw materials, good quality of product is not expected, therefore consistency on the market is not achieved and the requirements of ISO standards are not met.
To achieve sustainable development, Macedonian companies need to eliminate old habits and proactively focus on developing long-term partnerships with suppliers, providing technical support for training to improve processes, product quality, productivity, in one word accepting the TQM philosophy.
