Production Procurement

Seven categories of materials are procured at eleven locations.

  • Powertrain
  • Drivetrain
  • Hydraulic
  • Steel & Fabrications
  • Cast n' Plastic
  • Cabin, Interior, Electric/Electronic
  • Fluid n' Fasteners, OEM

These seven product groups (commodities) each consist of several sub-categories (subcommodities). The responsibilities of each location and product group are organized in a matrix structure.

We need the best suppliers!

  • Our suppliers operate worldwide on behalf of the Wacker Neuson Group. We expect global offers.
  • Our suppliers feature first-class production systems.
  • Continuous improvements ensure efficient pricing; we want to be a part of this.
  • Our goal is to have a small number of suppliers with large order volumes.
  • We consider our suppliers partners and want their technical input in order to achieve optimized product cost targets. 
  • We offer long-term contracts and expect annual discounts accordingly.
