Supplier Management

Basis of cooperation between the ATR partner and the supplier is the ATR agreement.

The operative purchasing itself is practised by the ATR partners directly. All ATR partners have their own purchasing and product management. The goods are directly delivered to the partners logistic centres. From that place the distribution to the customers of the ATR partners starts over the subsidaries and sales departments.

The ATR International AG coordinates the purchasing activities between the supplier and the ATR partner. A close cooperation between the ATR partners and the suppliers is taken for granted. Bundling of the product lines aligned with the supplier concentration is one strategic main focus of our cooperation. In 2004 a self developed successful program was placed in support of this: IPAS (International Preferred ATR Supplier) (more details)

The product area workshop furnishings/equipment is serviced by experts thus also forming a focal point in the cooperation.
