Procurement & Suppliers

Our demands towards ourselves

Our procedures undergo a continuous and permanent optimization process. Using modern methods, we develop measures that improve company-wide processes constantly. As a result we ensure our qualitative and economic competitiveness.

Also our procurement network undergoes steady observations. Concerning new requirements and tendering, transparency and a fair competition are important to us. We count as well on local as on international providers and suppliers to achieve the greatest possible competition. Already during the bidding phase we examine the offers according to commercial and technical characteristics, to choose at the end the strongest supplier.
