Working with Safran

Our one-stop online platform provides all the tools and information suppliers need for a seamless relationship with Safran.

Safran Purchasing department organization

Safran's Purchasing department has three units:

  • Group Purchasing: this central purchasing unit is responsible for purchasing and procurement strategy for all product families. It adapts purchasing policy to the specific requirements of Safran's different markets.
  • Safran Purchasing: this unit is in charge of indirect purchasing, as well as metallic and non-metallic materials for Safran companies. A Safran Purchasing buyer acts as contact for the purchase of goods or indirect services, but orders are issued in the name of the company concerned.
  • Entity Purchasing Department: production purchases are carried out by Group entities, which means that the contact for this type of purchase is a company buyer. 

Purchasing general terms and conditions (GTC)

Safran incorporates social and sustainable development aspects while ensuring fair contractual relations, especially with purchasing general terms and conditions (GTC) applied Group-wide. Purchasing GTC for other countries are available on request.
