Sourcing at ProMinent

In the center of the strategic cooperation with our suppliers, we are striving for collaboration on continuous improvements for the benefit of our customers.

Innovative strength is an important aspect when choosing our external partners. This includes the ability to develop new products as well as the ongoing optimization of the production and procurement processes to shorten lead times and continuously reduce costs.

The ProMinent Group's purchasing organization is divided into the following areas

  • Direct Materials: includes everything that is directly related to a ProMinent sales product, for example raw materials, drawing-related parts, OEM or e-catalog goods.
