Sourcing with focus on quality, safety and sustainability.

Quality, safety, sustainability, responsibility – these are only some criteria that have always been an integral part of KAEFER’s overall policy. In procurement we try to fulfil these values every day by taking global rules into account as well as local specifics. By this, our suppliers, subcontractors, and each of our purchasers in the KAEFER family help to also ensure efficient and cost-conscious procurement.

Our value-oriented behavior with a focus on resource-saving and cost-effective sourcing of material and services alike are the basis of our business. Both the central global purchasing department in Bremen (Corporate Supply Management) and the local purchasing organisations around the world have made a significant contribution to the success of our family-owned company in more than 100 years.

The continuous development of quality and risk management help us to take conscientious decisions. The constant exchange of information within KAEFER’s purchasing community and sharing our respective know-how are a guaranty to go from strength to strength. This is not only to the benefit of our customers, but also gives KAEFER a competitive edge for the future projects.

Become a supplier or subcontractor

Being able to consistently work to the highest standards is only possible when we collaborate closely with other companies that share our commitment to quality and safety. That’s why KAEFER only cooperates with selected partners and suppliers. To ensure that, our professional purchasing network regularly check our current supplier and subcontractor portfolio on a local and international level.
