Small Business Program

Our Philosophy

At Trimble, we believe working with small businesses makes good business sense. To ensure this value is continually realized, Trimble established a program to support the development of small businesses. We do this by proactively seeking diverse small business suppliers that meet our corporate goals; we also work with them long-term, seeking to empower them to attain their goals and objectives. Trimble relies on the talents and expertise of our suppliers who can provide a value-add product or service. Because of this, we believe our commitment to small businesses strengthens our own market position.

Small Business Commitment

Trimble is committed to identifying and promoting opportunities for disadvantaged, women-owned, HubZone, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran small businesses to the maximum extent practicable.

Trimble's Small Business Program (SBP) is comprised of eight core components.

  • Program Core: The program infrastructure: Staffing and support Team and Program Components

  • Strategic Plan: The SBP plan for accomplishing specific objectives in a given year

  • Management Participation: The SBP has full executive management support and participation

  • Customer Requirements: SB requirements generated by Trimble customers

  • Small Business Goals: SBP sets subcontracting goals to attain each year

  • Internal Efforts: SBP is self-administrating

  • External Efforts: SBP efforts to promote the program and to identify and assist Small Businesses

  • Program Review: A semi-annual review/assessment of the SBP accomplishments and success against goals

These interdependent components support and enhance each other, resulting in a robust program that ensures the success of the Small Business Program.

Success Story

Allcom attended the Sunnyvale Fair early in 2017. One of the engineers, Aubrey Calder, was interested in what Allcom had to offer and contacted Allcom to see if they would partner with Trimble. The request was for a time-critical basis to design, prototype and then manufacture a customized, proprietary NMO Mount for Trimble specific project. Engineering specs were submitted along with drawings and samples of the initial prototype. The design was agreed upon in the early summer of 2017 and was displayed at the Trimble Small Business Vendor Show in August. As a highly specialized project, this opportunity gave Allcom the expertise to work on similar projects in the future.

Trimble is always seeking to identify new small businesses to join our team of suppliers. One of the ways that we locate new businesses is by participating in outreach events that can provide exposure to a wide range of suppliers.

This is an excellent time when small businesses can meet and talk with buyers, commodity managers and engineers. Trimble also virtually reaches out to potential vendors as well as existing vendors on a yearly basis.
