Greta Kipping, Project Purchaser

“Evaluating, negotiating, and buying – that’s my job!”

“As a Project Purchaser, I have been involved with procuring individual parts on time for the various project phases since March 2012. I maintain close contact with potential suppliers and our designers as well as the quality and project management departments. My task is to procure the high-quality parts Thomas needs at a reasonable price from suppliers. Although we select suitable suppliers as a team, I am responsible for drawing up the basis for the decision. Thomas also gives me the chance to attend all sorts of internal and external training courses as part of my duties in order to expand my specialist knowledge.”
