„Technology partnerships are the future of Strategic Sourcing.“
Bernd Bok, Vice President Strategic Sourcing
The following core objectives provided the foundation for the realignment of the Strategic Sourcing department in 2015:
- Maximize synergies through development of global material group strategies
- Maximize purchasing potential by integrating suppliers at an early stage
- Maximize purchasing potential in global purchase markets
Commodity Management, Advanced Purchasing and Global Sourcing are the three pillars that formed the foundation for the global acquisition of HOMAG:
Worldwide Commodity Management aims to maximize synergies and thereby achieve optimal material costs through cooperation between Research and Development and Quality Management. Our Goal is to meet the requirements of the worldwide factories, by creating a worldwide audited supplier pool.
The goal of Advanced Purchasing is to include suppliers in the product development process at an early stage to better utilize purchasing potenial and benefit from their expert knowledge.
Global Sourcing plays an important role as the utilization of worldwide procurement markets is essential for international companies. The transfer of knowledge, methods and processes allows local purchasing teams to increase the national buying power and strengthen supplier partnerships for all worldwide factories.
