The companies of KraussMaffei work with a wide variety of suppliers from around the world. In 2015, we procured our materials and services from more than 10,000 active suppliers. Slightly more than half of our suppliers come from Germany (5,709), 3,104 from the rest of Europe and 1,064 from the USA. Currently, only a small portion of our suppliers (566) is based in Asia. Nevertheless, in conjunction with our ever-expanding production in China, we plan on expanding our supplier network in Asia as well. In 2015, our procurement volume of materials and services totaled approximately 771 million euros. Production material accounts for just under 80 percent of the purchasing volume (609 million euros).
Germany, with a proportional purchasing volume of 62 percent of our materials and services, is our main focus. The percentage in the rest of Europe and America is 33 percent. In Asia, this figure is 5 percent. Currently, the greatest potential for development to increase local purchasing volume seems to be in Asia.
