TCO - evaluation to prepare our procurement decisions.

Sustainability and consistent adherence to corporate compliance.
We assess the strategic potential of our suppliers on the basis of their quality awareness, product competence, manufacturing technology, productivity development and capability for logistical innovations. A particular requirement for our suppliers is the willingness and ability to reduce delivery times and increase flexibility in supply for the benefit of our customers. To implement this requirement, the introduction of technologies within the framework of Industry 4.0 is a key success factor. After assessing these capabilities, we align our supplier selection process.
