Supply Chain & Purchasing
Combining quick thinking with quality.
From sales forecasts to platform management via procurement, supply chain management is key. And internationally, purchasing performance gives us a vital competitive edge. These activities are becoming ever more important, particularly as international trade is increasing in complexity and concerns around the environment are growing.
76% of our industrial and logistics units have Health & Safety standards that comply with OHSAS 18001 standards.
Our Supply Chain teams face a key challenge: optimising all traffic of materials, components and products so that the products get to the stores on time without generating unnecessary stock. Although they work in many different parts of the company, these teams are supervised by a Centralised Management team which promotes the consistency of physical and data traffic in the Group and standardises work tools and methods. Heavily involved in product development, the Purchasing teams define our purchasing strategy and establish a list of approved suppliers for materials, components and finished products. They also negotiate contracts with them, regularly assess their performance in terms of cost, quality and deadlines, and make sure that they respect our social and environmental requirements.
