Supply Chain Management
The Syntegon Group has an independent supply chain network that holds many advantages for our suppliers and customers. Decisions are made quickly and competently because they are tailored exactly to Syntegon's processes. Our purchasing organization has clear responsibilities, enabling us to assign fixed contact persons to each suppliers.
Our success is also linked to the commitment of our suppliers. We offer interesting opportunities for innovative partners who are interested in a long-term, performance-oriented cooperation. Syntegon works with its suppliers as equals. Our goal is to select partners according to their specific strengths, to enter long-term contracts, and give them planning security. This gives them the opportunity to further develop and expand their own strengths. At the same time, we would like our suppliers to drive innovation and support Syntegon in a responsible partnership that helps our customers to master their challenges quickly.
We commit our business partners and ourselves to sustainable business practices and respect for human rights along the entire supply chain. The key rules are set out in our code of conduct for business partners.
Requirements for our suppliers
Syntegon is interested in entering longer-term contracts with its suppliers and have defined a set of requirements.
First and foremost, we expect an indisputable commitment to compliance and law, as well as responsible and sustainable corporate governance. This includes taking ethical, social, and environmental concerns into account in all business activities.
Furthermore, in addition to competitive prices, we expect our suppliers to share our own standards in terms of innovative strength, high quality, and service.
The code of conduct for business partners summarizes our key regulations for legal compliance, as well as for responsible and fair business conduct. It is binding for all our suppliers.
Our suppliers undertake to apply a quality assurance system analogous to ISO 9001 and also apply these principles in their supply chains. They use appropriate measures to ensure the quality of their deliveries and those of their supplier companies. Together, we ensure preventive quality assurance, which helps us to avoid mistakes and to improve continuously.
We expect all our suppliers with a purchasing volume greater than EUR 100,000 per year, and in other defined cases to conclude a framework agreement with us. This creates the basis to process transactions, establish an efficient, secure and smooth supply relationship, and distribute risks in a balanced way. The aim is to establish corporate agreements for the purchase of products based on individual contracts, purchase orders and delivery schedules.
If we have not concluded a corporate agreement with a supplier, our general terms and conditions of purchase apply.
For products related to Free and Open Source Software, Syntegon has supplementary terms and conditions of purchase.
We prefer to receive invoices from our suppliers by e-mail in PDF format, if this is legally permissible. In the near future, we will also be able to process machine-readable formats.
