Suppliers as partners.
A long-term working relationship with our suppliers on a partnership basis creates success for us all, and ensuring that we meet our high quality standards for the products we supply is a decisive factor in this relationship. Therefore, we strongly focus on exchanging know-how already at an early stage and on integrating our suppliers closely into our business processes. Thus we increase our mutual innovative potential and provide excellent customer support.
From our corporate headquarters in Lippstadt, we work through an internationally focused purchasing structure: the responsibility for our requirements with respect to quality and collaboration and our general contracts lies with the central headquarter; local purchasing organizations are established on a decentralized basis in the BHTC companies in the USA (Detroit), in China (Shanghai) and in India (Pune), and they work with both local and international suppliers.
Our purchasing portfolio includes:
- Components for the manufacture of electronic control units for climate control and thermal management
- Machines and equipment
- Raw materials and supplies
