The international purchasing organization of AGCO provides procurement services to all of our business divisions. We operate as a global purchasing network with offices in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
In order to ensure future global competitiveness by delivering a significant contribution to AGCO’s bottom line, we committed ourselves to develop and execute strategies achieving synergies cross-regionally, cross-functionally and cross-brands, by using global processes to drive sustainable value through AGCO’s supplier network.
To achieve best supply solutions for AGCO’s global needs, we initiated a gradual transformation towards a more centrally driven global purchasing organization based on a standardized global commodity structure. Consequently, we are now running a global commodity management structure which combines regional market expertise with global cross-regional guidance. This approach enables us to drive our operations towards continuous improvement in order to optimally manage our global spend and realize the best results for our business partners and us.
