The organisation of purchasing at Leica Camera AG is strategically centralised (Wetzlar) and operationally decentralised. Operational (product line) purchasing takes place in both manufacturing locations.
Strategic Purchasing is your contact and partner in all matters regarding cooperative activities and is responsible for collaboration with Quality Management on the choice and assessment of suppliers, project and production start-ups, price and cost agreements, basic agreements and volume contracts. In close collaboration with Operational Purchasing, Strategic Purchasing regulates ordering and material planning and manages all projects and start-ups up to serial-production maturity, taking immediate action in cases of serial-production-process disruption. Together with our Quality Management, Strategic Purchasing is your partner for audits, choice of suppliers and supplier assessment.
Operational Purchasing is your contact and partner in all matters regarding contract processing under serial-production conditions. The department is responsible for material planning and material procurement in terms of volumes and deadlines.
