Global Procurement manages the reliable and timely provision of raw materials, packaging materials, deliveries from third parties, technical equipment and services. This allows Sika to not only satisfy the highest quality expectations, but also meet social and environmental requirements and use new technologies in the best possible ways. As a result of our globally interconnected procurement teams, we possess comprehensive know-how and a high level of competence in all important delivery markets.
Sika is committed to create and foster close and collaborative relationships with its suppliers. The ultimate goal of these relationships is creating additional value in terms of quality, cost, innovation, sustainability and reduced supply risk as well as to actively impact the development towards higher environmental and social standards.
The procurement organization within Sika is aligned with the group strategy and key stakeholders: Target Markets; Technologies; Operations and Suppliers. This translates into a matrix organization with Global Categories, according to core technologies and geographic dimensions, operating across Asia Pacific, North and Latin America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. The application of a matrix organizational structure enables Sika to achieve fast and targeted collaboration with technology departments, production sites and supply partners.
