Abstract: In our paper we present the case study of the Ydria Motors d.o.o. company which produces semi products for household appliances. The company is a part of ebmpapst international Group and focuses on new products due to environmental standards and logistic services. In the Slovenian regional area the company is important member and cofounder of supply cluster. Now cluster consists of 27 companies from different parts of Slovenia, which are divided into three groups: material suppliers, service providers and suppliers of tools and equipment. Most of the cluster members are smaller companies. Much attention is devoted to education and mutual knowledge. Knowledge and development will provide needed supplier base cluster, which together with Ydria Motors Company will become an important factor in the supply chain, especially for the companies of household appliances in the EU and beyond. Within our survey we stressed the influence of implemented management standards on the products, people and society.
