The quality of our products is directly affected by the quality of our suppliers’ products. Increasing customer requirements and highly dynamic global markets demand a high degree of responsiveness, flexibility, and global orientation from us and our suppliers.

The continuous improvement of products and processes, as well as the sustained assurance of quality and costs, affect our entire procurement network, in which each supplier plays an important role.

These guidelines are binding for all suppliers and apply to all deliveries. They serve to outline our expectations as well as the requirements, prerequisites, and methods necessary to achieve our common objectives. Furthermore, examples of successful implementation are also provided.

Additional guidelines may apply at the regional or plant level.
