Your Role

As an Atlas Copco Purchaser, you are responsible for the supplier management of a specific set of commodities.
This implies you'll explore, select, introduce and optimize the supply chain considering the 6 pillars of purchasing: total cost, quality, logistics, products & process development, contracting and sustainability.

  • You develop a solid purchasing strategy based on the AII divisional targets (customer satisfaction, margin expansion and business growth) by actively participating in (re)design projects.
    This implies initiating price requests and evaluating suppliers on commercial, technical and logistical level, all whilst respecting legal and regulatory aspects.
  • You communicate relevant information to your internal stakeholders and support them in their project, budget and planning.
  • You collaborate closely with internal stakeholders like Marketing and Engineering on technology roadmaps for the commodities you are responsible for.

  • You lead the negotiations of supply agreements and systematically investigate purchasing synergies within your own department, the PT division and with colleagues from other product companies. We expect you to initiate and bring into completion savings and availability projects by conducting market research and benchmarks; considering total cost, value creation and possible risks.
  • You work closely with the SQA Engineers on the quality performance evaluation of your suppliers and the related improvement actions.
  • You coordinate, with the Logistical and Production department, the evaluation of the logistical performance of your suppliers and strongly support possible improvement actions. You are heavily involved in the actions to safeguard the deliveries to customers.

In this role, you will report to the Team Leader Purchasing.
