The corporate success of GEA depends to a high degree on the performance of our suppliers. Our worldwide purchasing organization is therefore constantly looking for new high-performing suppliers who can effectively contribute to meeting our overriding corporate objective of customer satisfaction.

The supply management of GEA has a company-wide category management structure that works with specialized purchasers in the procurement market to satisfy the needs of our customers.

Besides bundling company-wide requirements, the main task of purchasing is the strategic optimization of the procurement processes and the entire supply chain. In addition, the supply management organization is responsible for moderating interdisciplinary category teams to strengthen our relationships with our suppliers.
