Procurement and logistics occupy a key position now that, in addition to development, DEMCON is increasingly looking after production/volume production. We facilitate development projects in acquiring components from the right suppliers at the most favourable conditions. Furthermore, we perform a tactical and strategic function.
From the development phase to the complete supply chain
We are responsible for the timely availability of manufactured or purchased components at optimal stocking conditions. We do this ranging from the purchase, storage and picking of materials up to delivery to the client. If necessary we will organise a complete supply chain for a project. In addition to key aspects, such as cost, quality and delivery lead time, we review the manufacturability of a system together with the engineers, at an early stage of the design process.
We look after the required components for the engineers during the development phase, as well as the operators during the production phase.
- Project buyer: during development projects actively involved in the manufacturability of components and their acquisition from the right suppliers, including the organisation of the supply chain. Also responsible for part of the supplier base (commodity) at a tactical and strategic level.
- Operational buyer: responsible for the actual placement of purchase orders and for the desired delivery reliability and the associated administration.
- Warehouse operator: responsible for all ingoing and outgoing goods, their storage and stock levels in our logistics centre and the timely collection of goods for production.
