Third-party manufacturing is an integral part of our production strategy. For example, we sometimes use toll and contract manufacturers when entering new markets or introducing new products and technologies. In these cases, the corresponding production volume is often still small.
The use of external partners also helps to optimize our production and logistics network and to increase resource efficiency. Currently, we source around 10 percent additional annual production volume from toll and contract manufacturers.
Our requirements regarding quality, environmental, safety and social standards are an integral part of all contractual relationships and order placements. We monitor them using audits carried out by our own staff and, increasingly, by specialized third-party service providers. We aim to establish long-term collaborations with our toll and contract manufacturers. This also includes adding them to our environmental data recording systems.
