How does Arkema pay suppliers?
Arkema places a strong emphasis on working with suppliers who can accommodate Arkema's requirements for extended payment terms.
Arkema's preferred method of payment for domestic suppliers is via the ACH network. Payment can be made ACH-CTX or ACH-CCD depending on the supplier's bank requirements. Payments are sent by Arkema twice weekly, Tuesdays and Fridays. A supplier can expect payment to arrive in its bank account 48 hours later. Each new Supplier must complete the attached ACH payment authorization form.
For foreign suppliers, Arkema will pay by either check or by wire. Checks are only run once per week. Internal approvals are required for wire payments and these are usually reserved for suppliers with large balances.
What is Arkema's remit to address?
Arkema prefers to receive invoices via electronic mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mailing address is:
Attn: Accounts Payable
P. O. Box 66207
King of Prussia, PA 19406-2207
Does Arkema have a required invoicing format?
Proper invoicing will make the payment process more efficient for you and us. Make sure that your invoice contains the required information. It is essential that each supplier's invoice reference a valid Arkema purchase order number. Purchase orders from our SAP system begin with 4500 and contain 10 digits. Purchase orders from our GP MaTe system will begin with 00, 01 or 02 and contain a minimum of 10 digits.
