Inwido relies on ongoing deliveries of wood, glass, aluminium, fittings, etc. Inadequate supply could entail increased expenses and, in certain cases, disrupted production. Normally, there is a certain displacement between purchase and sales price adjustments due to agreements entered with suppliers and customers. Altered price levels affect Inwido’s purchasing prices with a delay of up to six months.
Inwido has built up its relations with key suppliers over many years. Inwido’s central purchasing organization coordinates purchases of the major material categories. By centralizing its purchasing, Inwido is able to enhance its negotiating position and cut expenses for materials.
