Basis for long-term partnerships
The purchasing of components, services as well as raw, auxiliary and operating materials is a fundamental basis of our production activities. The quality of the supplied components and services crucially determines our success as a company. Handtmann relies on high levels of innovative capability and quality as well as on competitive prices at our suppliers. Only together can we overcome the challenges of a difficult market environment in the automotive industry. Through cooperation, strategic partnerships and the consistent further development of our supply chain, our goal is to achieve the required product quality, to ensure the supply of products to our customers and to establish competitive concepts on the market.
