Material procurement at Frauenthal Automotive integrates purchasing with procurement logistics and contributes essentially to the company's strong competitiveness.

Our procurement goals are based on the requirements of our customers and their satisfaction. In order to meet this constant challenge, we work exclusively with those suppliers who in the medium and long term can offer us the best combination with regard to quality, price, delivery and function.

In joint cooperation with our suppliers and via exercising strict discipline with regard to the procurement process, we aim to achieve the lowest levels of both missing parts and supply cover. Flexible standard supply processes ensure the continual optimisation of the inter-company value chain.
