Your purchasing – the foundation for your profits
The risk of insolvency is considerably higher in the construction sector than in other sectors. With a return on sales of between 1% and 4%, building contractors have the lowest returns of all those involved in construction. The reason for this is strong price competition, which is exacerbated by the need to fully utilise employee and machinery capacity. Many concentrate too much on new orders and too little on increasing profit margins by optimising calculations and purchasing.
The key measures for optimising purchasing during a Kloepfel project carried out by our experienced construction team in order to sustainably improve your company’s result are: reducing all direct material costs, improving payment conditions, reducing equipment costs and overheads, improving reliability of supply, forming purchasing partnerships and reducing expensive cross-departmental purchasing (maverick buying) by introducing centralisation.

“Alongside effective and smooth cooperation between your team and our employees, we are now benefitting from higher transparency within our supplier environment and a general improvement in our data.”
“The cooperative and friendly way in which the Kloepfel team always worked with our employees and suppliers and the sound professional and specialist knowledge of the Kloepfel team have contributed considerably to the success of the project. Alongside conditional savings in direct and indirect areas, the project has given us a very good estimation of our purchasing situation from an external point of view.”
“In our four-month project ( 02/2010 – 05/2010), Mr. Tomzik’s team got quickly and flexibly into the topic, identified efficient ways of implementing savings potential and acted successfully.”
“The stock value reduction of over 20% achieved just three months into the project was a pleasant surprise for us, and convinced us of your performance ability.”
