Working 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.
