Albéa and its suppliers… sustainable, quality relationships

Suppliers play a key role at Albéa. We construct and develop solid and lasting relationships with our suppliers around the world. Our Purchasing teams work closely with our network of suppliers who are audited and qualified according to high standards.

A high level of technical, economic, environmental and social performance is expected of our suppliers in order to meet the requirements of our customers.

The criteria are as follows:

  • Constant product and/or service quality
  • Full delivery, without errors and on time
  • Commercial competitiveness
  • Efficient, zero-defect logistics
  • Ability to innovate with materials, products, technology and processes
  • Durability of the products and the company

Our purchasing policy

 

At the heart of our strategy is the continuous improvement of our policies and practices relating to sustainable development throughout our supply chain.

 

"We want all of our suppliers and partners to ensure the well-being of their employees, to contribute responsibly to our environmental footprint and to help us create value for the whole ecosystem" Gilles Swyngedauw, CSR & Innovation Director, Albéa

 

We form partnerships with the suppliers with the best CSR performance in order to find solutions to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and products.

 

Our Purchasing teams

Managed centrally, our Purchasing department is made up of global Purchasing managers who cover our main expenditure categories: raw materials, transport packaging, investment expenses, components, maintenance, repair and operation, etc. Our buyers work closely with the in-house teams and rely on a network of local buyers, who are present on most of our sites, and on regional experts.
