ETO pursues the aim of developing and offering high quality and reliable products for optimum customer benefits.

The purchasing function, as a link between the company and its suppliers, is continually gaining strategic significance in the implementation of this aim. The supplier and customer relationship forms the foundation for successful business development.

The purchasing organisation supports this strategy by developing long-term and cooperative business relationships with selected suppliers.

Alongside the classic procurement aims of costs, quality and delivery reliability, supplier consolidation with further development of strategic target suppliers is at the forefront.
