Our Purchasing Department
We are divided into four different purchasing areas:
- Raw materials
- Packaging material
- Technics, services and indirect material
Within these areas, lead buyers are coordinating and bundling the group-wide needs of essential materials. With an annual cost of materials of approximately € 1 billion, our competitiveness depends largely on our suppliers and service providers. The purchasing department is faced with the constant challenge of sourcing materials and services at the right time, in the required quality and at a competitive price due to volatile markets and globalization-driven change. At the same time, of course, the material and services should be consistent with the ethical, environmental and social principles of Hochland.
