Supplier FAQs

#How do I become a Thiess supplier?

As a preference we select suppliers locally, nationally and then internationally. The group supply chain team targets those categories of spend that have applicability to multiple business units and runs a robust evaluation process. Corporate suppliers are selected based on our priorities and a view towards a long term relationship. Project suppliers tend to be selected on a fixed term basis for products or services with a specific or specialised local need. To become a supplier, please register your interest online.

#If we already provide services or products to Thiess should we still register?

The team has likely already categorised your offering and has entered this into our database. It is not necessary for you to register again, however if your business range or other details have changed, it is a good idea to register and update us.
