Best-in-Class On-Time Delivery

Supply Chain Management is the key element within the product-supply pillar because it functions as the connecting and synchronizing element between Bulk Manufacturing, Quality Control, and Packaging.

Our Rottendorf Supply Chain Management group operates based on a holistic, advanced, 3-stage planning process from rough-cut planning down to detailed daily planning throughout the business. Through this highly integrated process best-in-class on-time delivery is ensured.

Communication with our customers always takes place in a proactive and customer-oriented manner.

We understand the market demands and requirements of our customers and match an applicable supply-chain strategy to those demands and requirements. This maximizes the customer's benefits while minimizing oversight requirements.

Within daily business, we are aware of the detailed status of our orders and the customer’s requirements at any point in time. We continuously identify the potential for improvement in the planning processes and proactively make suggestions for their implementation. By continuously developing our processes, planning models and staff, we always provide our customers with the best service possible.
