In manufacturing companies, the material ratio is typically between 40 and 70 percent, depending on the industry: KPIs influenced by purchasing such as supplier quality and delivery reliability, replacement times, costs and inventories are directly reflected in the balance sheet and income statement. Purchasing thus plays a major role with a direct impact on the performance of the entire company.
Optimally positioned purchasing is thus a lever for achieving competitive advantages. It is important here not to act as a “cost cutter” in the short term, but to anticipate future developments in terms of the market environment, product portfolio, customer and supplier structure and general conditions with foresight, to incorporate them into the purchasing strategy and thus significantly increase the value of the company.
