Every year, ABB utilizes millions of products and services in over 200 categories from thousands of suppliers all over the world. Our goal is to create a supply base that works as an extended enterprise for us, creating value through constantly improving quality, technology, logistics, and so on, while optimizing cost.
We develop relationships worldwide to strengthen our network of suppliers and source everything the business needs to design, manufacture, sell and service our portfolio of highly sophisticated engineering products and services around the world.
Whether we are buying and hedging copper, high-tech components or sourcing engineering consulting services, operating a world-class supply chain organization means having twin goals: increasing our competitiveness and helping our customers to succeed.
ABB is probably one of the most internationally diversified companies in the world, based on our culture and geographic footprint. It does not matter where you come from or with which accent you speak English – all that matters is how good you are and how well you fit in with the team. Our business is performed locally even as our supply chains are global. This provides, especially for SCM personnel, interesting challenges in working “glocally”.
We constantly improve the development of our global supply chain teams. We get involved in early stage technology and product development; leveraging world-class supply chain management processes, tools and systems across the function. We make investments in SCM and leadership training to help us create one of the best supply chains in the world in our industry.
That means there are practically limitless opportunities to develop your expertise and get the experience you need for a world-class career, whether you specialize in supply chain disciplines or transportation and logistics.
Our 3,000-plus SCM employees work in more than 100 countries, and we source from most countries in the world. So, the majority of your work will have an international dimension. There are excellent opportunities to move around the world, if you are interested.
The exceptional people you work with, the unique projects you tackle and the global scale of our business will give you the skills and experience you need to take your career to the next level.
