The selection and use of materials and raw material rank among the top indispensable elements of our company’s production. Raw material expenditures constitute about 75% of our total procurement.
The way to reach operational excellence, one of our core strategies at Kordsa, involves ensuring quality in products and services. Our materials management system, systematic approach and policies plays an important role to satisfy our customers and achieve our targets.
The targets we set with regard to materials management include improving materials handling systems, enhancing warehouse organization, conducting field audits of the contracts concluded with suppliers, and improving the system established for just-in-time delivery of raw materials.
In addition to these targets, we work on the efficient use of materials, producing the same quality product with less material, enabling reuse of materials if possible, and using, transporting and disposing of materials so that their environmental impact is minimized.
Our commitment to manage impacts by the use of materials and raw material is covered under the continuous improvement heading of our OHSES (Occupational Health & Safety, Environment & Sustainability) Policy published by Kordsa for all its plants.
In addition to our investments in human resources to realize projects that will help us achieve these targets, we also plan on the development of special software and technological systems to monitor and review our targets.
