KUHN Group purchase organisation

The Kuhn Group has grown significantly in the last years. It is now composed of 5 production units in Europe (4 in France and 1 in the Netherlands) and 4 in the Americas (USA and Brazil). Thanks to all those units we can propose to our customers an important range of agricultural machineries in the following fields:
- Ploughing
- Soil preparation
- Seeding
- Fertilisation
- Spraying
- Landscape maintenance
- Shredders
- Hay / Silage making
- Balers
- Wrappers
- Bedding and Feeding
- Manure spreading

The importance of the group's purchasing potential and its great diversity have led us to build an organization to develop synergies.
This organization is based on a coordination unit and a transversal purchasing function in which we have defined 3 purchasing models for the European part of the group:

- Local purchase
- Purchase lead by a pilot buyer
- Central purchase

In our organization we favored the model with a pilot buyer.

This new organization will allow us to offer you:
• a specialized contact for the group
• higher volumes thanks to pooling and standardization

It should help improve our business relationship.
