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.
