We emphasize partnership with our suppliers. Clear guidelines define our collaboration to ensure mutual and consistent growth. Our actions are driven by the insight that the best results can be achieved if we work with – not against – our suppliers. Hence, we focus on the following principles when purchasing from our suppliers:
- Supply Chain Management
We ensure a smooth material flow in order to be able to react quickly, flexibly and reliably to meet our customer requirements.
- Management of supplier relationships
A good collaboration starts with clear communication. This is why we have a close relationship with our suppliers with whom we jointly define our future targets.
- Global Sourcing
As a global enterprise, we also are at home on the global procurement markets. Depending on the chief requirements of our customers, we choose our suppliers following the principle of total cost of ownership.
Whatever we do, we do efficiently using all available resources.
