Supply Chain Management, Purchasing, Transport Logistics

The best in the right place at the right time. They make sure everything goes like clockwork: Supply Chain Management, Purchasing and Transport Logistics set the pace, when it's a question of supplying Production with optimum materials on schedule and distributing our goods and services to our customers and partners all round the world.

Planning and analysing while remaining flexible

Three departments, one goal: our teams in Supply Chain Management, Purchasing and Transport Logistics are the driving force that ensure our goods arrive on schedule in top condition to our customers all over the world. They analyse demand, plan our resources, work closely with Production and other departments, and ship the finished products to the right destination – always respecting social and environmental conditions. 

Our teams are characterised by their flexible approach and adaptability, and finding fast, efficient solutions even in new situations. To give our staff the tools they need, we rely on further training and close collaboration between employees, including those in different departments. Openness, trust and respect aren't just a matter of course for us when dealing with each other, but also form the basis of our cooperation with suppliers, partners and customers, which has often existed for many years.

Supply Chain Planning

Supply Chain Management is responsible for requirements/volume planning, as well as the flow of materials to Production and our subsidiaries round the world. The team on site also acts as the link between Materials Planning and Production.

Purchasing

Top-quality raw materials and individual parts are essential for manufacturing our products. We maintain reliable partnerships with our suppliers, and our Purchasing team ensures that performance, quality, prices, environmental standards, infrastructure and innovative strength live up to our requirements.
