Procurement: Purchasing / Technical Material Management and Standardization

The Emsland Group’s Purchasing Department assumes responsibility along the entire value chain: In close cooperation with in-house departments and our suppliers and service providers, based on clearly defined standards. In our own production and business operations and with regard to the effects of our products on people and the environment. At the same time, complying with sustainability standards in the supply chain is an important lever for us to minimize risks.

We have organized the purchasing of key commodity groups such as

  • Energy
  • Chemicals
  • Food additives
  • Packaging materials
  • Capital goods
  • Replacement parts
  • Miscellaneous technical materials
  • Third-party services and other services

in a centralized manner. This allows us to bundle our purchasing requirements, strengthen our expertise and make the procurement process lean and transparent.

Procurement requires suppliers and service providers to be in top form. Fairness and openness form the foundation of a trusting and long-term supplier relationship.

    There are two further important pillars within procurement: technical material management and standardization.

    The technical material management of the Emsland Group is subject to a detailed commodity group structure.

    In cooperation with standardization, the processes for creating master data such as materials, components, parts lists and recurring orders (inspections, maintenance, etc.) are optimally implemented.

    The aim is to ensure, in the long term, that set standards are introduced and complied with. Therefore, the technical material management and standardization of the Emsland Group pursue the following goals:

    • To reduce the variety of technical materials used while increasing availability (including between plants)
    • To accelerate and optimize planning and implementation processes for investments and maintenance measures
    • To ensure the efficient use of storage capacities and reduce warehousing costs
