Our purchasing policy
We aim to be an important client for our suppliers in the sense that we wish to develop a long-term partnerships, this enables us to minimise the number of communication channels we need to work with. That said, we also do not wish to be so important that our suppliers become too reliant on our orders.
On the other hand, we do not want to become too reliant on our suppliers either, and we therefore endeavour to ensure that we have at least one alternative supplier for each of our product categories. Our production and purchasing are determined by our customers and we therefore prefer flexible suppliers with significant capabilities and support with short lead times. A supplier’s capability including its ability to provide quality assurance and competitive pricing has an important influence on our selection of suppliers.
Requirements and expectations
We place the same demands on our suppliers as we do on ourselves. We need to ensure we are delivering competitive products on time, with an effective quality management system being willing to obtain the necessary certificates needed to meet the minimum requirements set for our products and raw materials.
Our partnerships will involve establishing supplier agreements and evaluating suppliers, including auditing their production plants on a regular basis.
