In this chapter we identify three types of supplier firms based on their value creation activities towards main customers: detached, technology-focused and integrated suppliers. The supplier types vary in their engagement with their most important customers, but not in performance. The interaction-oriented nature of the Danish innovation system is also reflected in the identified supplier types, and there are no signs of global competition and production relocation undermining this distinctive feature of the Danish system. The study concludes that the globalisation of manufacturing activities is not as great a challenge as might have been expected for Danish suppliers.
