Sourcing

​Our sourcing strategy aims at developing long-term mutually beneficial partnerships with the suppliers who can offer the best response to our business needs in terms of cost, quality and service.

We develop sourcing initiatives at corporate or country level, to select preferred suppliers in every category, which allow them to develop their business throughout our operations.

The purchasing function is coordinated by Category Managers, consisting of a team of experts and purchasing managers from each country, region or business. This team is in charge of the sourcing strategy, negotiation of prices and allocation of volumes.

The sourcing categories are as follows: 

  • Chemicals
  • Cores
  • Dies and stereos
  • Energy
  • Forklifts
  • Glues
  • Inks
  • IT equipment
  • Lease cars
  • MRO (General Spare Parts)
