Our way of sourcing
Customer requirements are constantly increasing. For this reason we in purchasing pass the same requirements on to our suppliers, as the quality and success of our products depend on our relationship with them.
As a global partner, represented in China, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, Thailand and United States, we benefit from innovation and cost advantages on the worldwide procurement market and use them in our company.
We select our suppliers based on the criteria of quality, delivery reliability, cost and service. We are also interested in creating long-term supplier relationships. The central idea is that performance and counter-performance, opportunities and risks exist in a balanced relationship to each other.
Short delivery times and the capacity to adapt to changes in the market are further requirements from customers, so we expect flexibility and high motivation from our suppliers.
Schaffner’s strategy is based on 8 success factors, implemented together with suppliers and internal department.
