Our cross-functional teams, which are independent of the organization, develop sound group-wide material group strategies. Through this type of material group and supplier management, we put together product and supplier portfolios together with our suppliers at optimal costs.
Our goal is long-term cooperative and trusting partnership with our suppliers. We involve them as early as possible in the product development processes wherever this is helpful.
Conversely, we also expect continuous development and optimization from our suppliers with respect to their services.
To us, continuity, efficiency, quality awareness, willingness to innovate and reliability are the factors for success of a good business relationship.
