The commitment given
to our customers depends on a reliable supply of materials and equipment.
We must be sure that we receive the material and equipment in the right quality, at the right time, at the right price. For this reason, GRUNDFOS regard their suppliers as vital, and we regard our relations to them as a way of becoming more competitive in the marketplace.
Our purchasing people around the world ensure that we have a portfolio of suppliers who can provide the right quality, delivery time and price. They are responsible for both selecting the suppliers we need and developing the appropriate relationship with each supplier.
This may take place either at a global level in Group Purchase or at a local level within each production company.
Supplier Relationship Management (SRM )helps us creating and developing the appropriate relationship with each of our many suppliers in relation to the product they sell to us.
In this way we will become a more attractive customer, and at the same time we will help our suppliers to serve our needs better.
