Supplier Application:

We have preceded a future supplier relationship with an application process that initially extends through formal profiling, to inquiries with effective quality testing of sample and initial delivery. Your cooperation begins with a fully completed supplier self-disclosure and can then move on to the submission of offers, the joint formation of contracts and the subsequent initial and subsequent delivery(s). The application process is initiated by the self-disclosure. (download.pdf) It helps to present your organization and its structures and to present your product range. It goes without saying that we treat all information received at this point as strictly confidential.


Supplier selection:

Your information will be checked by our strategic purchasing department. In the event of any detailed questions arising from this, we will contact you and coordinate further steps with you.

If the company profile meets our requirements (qualification process), your company will be included in our supplier portfolio and, if necessary, receive our corresponding inquiries.


Supplier Evaluation:

he results of analyses of the following criteria are used to evaluate suppliers:

- Quality

- Environmental protection

- Safe chemicals (REACH)

Supplier development:

Our supplier development principles serve the sole purpose of always fully meeting our customers' requirements in a long-term and future-oriented manner together with our partners.

Development measures are thus aimed at optimizing the entire supplier relationship. The critical view applies in particular to the process flows at the manufacturer / supplier, the logistics chain, as well as in our own company. The agreement of clear development goals with our suppliers, as well as the consistent implementation of jointly agreed improvement measures are always targeted, but also contribute to strengthening the partnership.
