PROCUREMENT: COLLABORATION BETWEEN FRONIUS AND ITS SUPPLIERS

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

We endeavour to supply the right product at the right time, in the right quantity and the right condition, to the right place for the right customer and at the right cost. To fulfil the “7Rs”, we take an active approach to supplier management and actively establish strategic partnerships with our suppliers through joint development activities. Strategic partners enhance Fronius’ core know-how through their expertise, increasing the company’s innovative strength.

CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT

When it comes to our suppliers, we believe that reliability, efficiency, a sound financial footing and the responsible use of resources are of the utmost importance. We carry out a supplier evaluation at least once a year to determine potential areas for improvement. This helps our suppliers to ensure that they are consistently meeting Fronius’ high requirements and facilitates targeted development of the company as a whole. In addition, Fronius carries out audits on a regular basis in order to continuously monitor quality standards. Active components are also subject to regular cost audits. This enables suppliers to routinely optimise their procedures and processes and therefore work more efficiently.

OVERVIEW OF PURCHASING DEPARTMENTS

We think in terms of purchasing categories rather than countries or suppliers. This results in an organisation based on purchasing departments that specialise in specific goods and services.
