Your purchasing – the driver of returns and innovation

For manufacturing companies in the automotive supply industry, purchasing is one of the most essential components for surviving and securing success. Continual demands for improvements from OEMs despite fluctuating raw material prices, long approval processes, securing reliability of supply and influencing customers are just a few of the daily challenges. In the competitive and globalised automotive industry, it can often be that every percentage point counts – it requires a lot of negotiation and investment.

Together with the specialist automotive team, you can increase your company’s success even further. As well as improving prices and conditions for all direct and indirect materials, reducing overheads and identifying new procurement channels, our international team provides professional support in the areas of global sourcing, increasing transparency through cost structure analyses, value analysis-based optimisation and holistic monitoring of machinery investments.
