WALTER Purchasing

Our suppliers are the focus of our activities. Together we want to shape the future. Daily and worldwide. 

Walter Maschinenbau GmbH is an internationally active system and solution provider for tool machining with worldwide production, service and sales locations as well as representations through third parties. This requires an internationally oriented value-added and supplier chain as well as a global purchasing network, which contribute significantly to the success of our company and our customers.

At WALTER, the purchasing organisation is involved in all process steps and purchasing procedures, from the development and creation of requirements to the handling of requirements. Globally networked purchasers are responsible for the tailor-made selection of suppliers and the exact project handling.

Our purchasing philosophy is shaped by our overriding corporate philosophy, which we call PuLs® (precision and passion). At the centre of this philosophy is the resource-conserving use of all resources and the avoidance of waste. The term waste is defined as "inefficient use of resources such as money, time but also human power and creativity. All these elements are of great importance for our company. For this reason it is our goal to avoid waste and to act efficiently and sustainably in the service of our customers.

Sustainable action with regard to people and the environment is not only important within our group, but also obligatory for our supply chain. In this sense, we are committed to the United Nations Global Compact.
