Purchasing – Global Sourcing print E-mail

The profit is generated by purchasing: Lowering cost of materials
and keep the same quality and delivering safety

Asia and primarily China have developed into the production centre of the world and with that into the greatest and most cost-effective procurement market. However, depending on material groups, you still can source very cost-effectively in Eastern European countries too.

Additionally the quality standard as well as the share of technologically high-quality products increases continuously in Emerging Markets, so that the purchasing potential extends from year to year.

Besides global sourcing from Europe or the USA the "localization", i.e. purchasing for local production of foreign companies, plays more and more a bigger.
