Supplier Diversity

ATS TPM DEI and Supplier Diversity

For organizations placing a priority on supplier diversity and partnering with veteran and minority owned vendors, Zepol Productions, Inc. (ZPI) represents a very attractive option for helping you achieve your corporate diversity goals. Founded in 1999 by Scott Lopez, a proud Army veteran, ZPI produces exclusive brands for distributors and resellers that provides a proactive and collaborative approach to Total Lifecycle Management.

 

ZPI’s diversity status has the potential to increase procurement opportunities for our customers. Our certified minority-owned and veteran-owned business status gives our channel partners the ability to participate in diversity projects by utilizing ZPI as a second-tier supplier (a.k.a. Tier 2 supplier). Today, many large corporations and public utilities are working to increase the inclusion of diverse suppliers in their supply chain.  To accomplish this, they are requiring that a percentage of their purchases be contracted with diversity companies.  Therefore, ZPI’s diversity status enables our customers to have a competitive advantage to compete in this growing market segment.

As a diversity supplier and partner, ZPI has successfully grown and embraces a core of company values.  We are a strong team and we are:

  • Ambitious, Passionate, Thought Leaders
  • Customer First, Agile, Highly Adaptive
  • Distribution – Channel Focused, Innovators
  • Committed to Teamwork with the Ability to work cross functionally
  • A Reflection of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within our company and our community

As a growing company, ZPI is also committed in promoting diversity spending within our own supplier base. We seek to utilize suppliers/vendors who are formally certified as MBEs, WBEs, SDVOSBs, SBA 8a, & HUB zone based.  ZPI is focused on creating mutually beneficial partnerships with corporations (public or private) who are actively involved with and support Supplier Diversity Initiatives within the U.S. and globally.

Making a commitment to diversity in today’s marketplace is a business imperative and ZPI makes your choice of vendors/partners an easy one.
