The objective of global sourcing is to create purchasing synergies throughout the leverage of volumes, use of best practice in tenders, benchmarking pricing and doing market research.
We promote partnerships with our suppliers to create better conditions, find innovative solutions and improve business.
Global sourcing ensures security of supply, safety and compliance with environmental requirements for all services, products and raw materials purchased. Main categories are containerboard, transport, energy and CO2, and inks.
Additionally, we manage several multidisciplinary projects, such as spare parts and fork lifts, in order to define and apply the best methodology everywhere within our organization..
Our focus is not only on price, but also on factors such as quality, availability, customisation and end user satisfaction. In addition, sustainability of our suppliers is becoming one of the most important factors in supplier selection and something we regularly audit suppliers on.
People working in the sourcing department usually have a background in finance, technical and the purchasing/supply chain.
Often there are vacancies for graduates with an engineering or business degree to join the sourcing department as junior project managers in an international environment.
