Supplier objectives


  • Long-term cooperation
    We strive for long-term cooperation with our suppliers, with whom we work openly and fairly.
  • Global sourcing
    The HYDAC Group is represented worldwide by its products. We secure cost advantages for our customers by organizing our procurement internationally.
  • Worldwide contracts
    We expect the contracts entered into with our suppliers to be valid for our companies worldwide.
  • Reduction in number of suppliers
    We pursue continuously the process of supplier reduction in order to be able to deal with the procurement markets more efficiently.
  • Supplier development
    We support our suppliers with regard to their methods and processes in order to fulfil the demands of our customers.
  • Delivery flexibility (quantity and date)
    We demand from our suppliers the same flexibility that our customers expect from us.
  • Simultaneous engineering
    We involve our suppliers continually in the development of our products.
  • System and module suppliers
    We build up the relationships with our suppliers and support them to develop from being parts suppliers to becoming suppliers of systems and modules.
  • Optimization of the supply chain
    We work continually to optimize the supply chain to achieve cost-effective supply to our production. Our suppliers react by introducing additional services such as Just-In-Time delivery (JIT), and setting up "Kanban" and consignment stock.
