Procurement

The procurement division undertakes the procurement of raw materials, capital goods, spares and reserve parts, industrial services and auxiliary and operating materials for VDM Metals GmbH. Procurement of raw materials for our US subsidiary, VDM Metals USA, LLC, is also managed from Germany.

At our locations in Altena, Essen, Unna and Werdohl, we operate central storage centers where we store spares and reserve parts to bring plants back into operation at short notice in the event of any technical malfunction. Auxiliary and operating materials are held primarily at the central storage facility in Werdohl, but also at individual plant sites.
