About “Kyle at the Home Depot”
When The Home Depot was founded in 1978, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank had no idea how revolutionary this new “hardware store” would be for home improvement and the retail industry. Today, we’re proud to be the world’s largest home improvement retailer. In 2,300 stores across North America, we aspire to excel in service – to our customers, associates, communities and shareholders. That’s what leadership means to us. That’s The Home Depot difference.
The Home Depot works to build inclusive and sustainable business opportunities for women, minority, veteran, disability and LGBTQ owned companies. We are committed to cultivating a supplier base that creates long-lasting growth and mutual business success, while reflecting the diversity of our customers and strengthening our communities.
In 2020, we spent $3.2 billion with diverse suppliers. This increases shareholder value, drives innovation and creates economic impact in the communities that we serve. We also provide supplier development and mentoring to assist with business growth, and we partner with organizations that provide certification, education, opportunities for capital and networking opportunities.
