Faurecia works with suppliers in a range of ways – from short-term contracts to answer specific Faurecia needs, mid-term relationships for business development -, or long-term collaboration for mutual growth and benefit.
Faurecia’s innovation focuses on developing solutions that address automotive and environmental challenges.
Technological leadership is one of our key axes to drive growth and position us as a global leader innovating for mobility. Encouraging and supporting our suppliers to develop exclusive solutions is a priority for Faurecia purchasing.
For all R&D activities, we are looking for suppliers that create value and improve environmental performance for the end-consumer by contributing to an enhanced and sustainable driving experience. In all business lines and product ranges, Faurecia integrates weight reduction and recyclability goals right from the design stage.
Purchasing teams engage in a diverse array of activities, from buying important raw materials to assessing the value of intellectual property. Purchasing influences the company’s economic performance across multiple areas, including sourcing, negotiation, evaluation, market analysis, cost constraints, innovation, deadlines, quality, co-development, competitiveness…
At a fundamental level, Purchasing is about getting the best deal for the resources available to Faurecia. But, it’s a role that goes far beyond researching costs.
What’s happening on international markets that will affect the supply and demand of needed products? What’s the ideal profile for a provider of a specialized service? How far should Faurecia be willing to go in a negotiation to secure timely supply at an advantageous price while ensuring that our absolute requirements for quality and safety are met?
A focus on the needs of Faurecia’s customers and the importance of building enduring, trust-based relationships with suppliers are key to keeping our business on track.
