Every year, HOCHTIEF spends more than 60 percent of its entire business volume on procuring products and services. In 2014, this amounted to a total of EUR 15.8 billion.
Favorable purchasing terms are just one essential element of successful procurement. HOCHTIEF focuses increasingly on optimizing procurement processes, ensuring effective procurement management, strategic supplier selection as well as bundling of demands on a Group-wide basis with the objective to take advantage of synergies in its global procurement network.

From within the Corporate Headquarters topics like governance, compliance and utilization of Group synergies are being developed and implemented in close cooperation with HOCHTIEF's Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe divisions.
