Procurement

Introduction

Reibungslose Abläufe in der Produktion erfordern gut organisierte Rahmenbedingungen. Aus diesem Grund werden alle Einkäufe von BSW, BDW, BSN und BSA beim Zentral-Einkauf gebündelt und ge­steuert. Gute Marktkenntnisse und flexible Struk­turen sind die Voraussetzungen, um Leistungsfä­hig­keit und Produktivität in der Firmengruppe zu gewährleisten. Dies beginnt bei den technischen Einrichtungen der Produktion und endet bei den unterschiedlichsten Dienstleistungen.

The purchase of raw materials plays a vital role in meeting the high quality requirements placed on the products. For example, scrap must be free of any contamination, radioactivity, and possible hollow and explosive objects, as well as closed containers. In addition to scrap, electrodes, alloys, refractory materials, lime and coal are purchased in accordance with strict criteria to ensure that the production at BSW runs smoothly. To facilitate compliance with these criteria, one-day seminars are held on request that cover topics of steel production, scrap specifications, and quality assurance for scrap trading companies. Managing raw materials well results in good products and sustainable responsibility for resources – completely in line with the corporate goals of BSW.
