We therefore expect from our suppliers, in addition to an
attractive cost structure,above all a high degree of:

  • quality
  • delivery reliability
  • flexibility
  • commitment to service
  • innovative capability


In 1999, a central purchasing organisation was established at the headquarters in Höxter. At an organisational level, this has been assigned to Arntz Beteiligungs GmbH & Co KG. It takes care of ordering and purchasing for our German locations and is furthermore responsible for negotiating global contracts.

The central purchasing department is supported by regional purchasing offices at the locations of our worldwide production facilities. These offices make purchases independently. However, they also fall back on our global contracts.


The five purchasing areas are differentiated:

  • Raw materials/production materials
  • Investment goods + spare parts
  • Technical services
  • Auxiliary/operating materials
  • Commodities
