Information for suppliers

KNDS Deutschland produces top-level defence technology. Our customers have the strictest demands concerning the quality and safety of our systems. For that reason, close cooperation with dependable value creation partners and suppliers is of great importance to us. We consider competitiveness, quality and delivery performance and sustainability to be the foundation for successful business relationships.


We are looking for reliable, high-performance suppliers

We can only meet our high product standards with high-grade raw materials, parts, components and services. For that reason, we expect integrity and high quality assured by internationally recognised standards from our suppliers.


Take advantage of opportunities together!

Our suppliers are selected in terms of quality, performance, suitability and price of the selected products or services. We ensure compliance with our strict requirements and high standards through international purchasing activities, quality and reliability inspections at subcontractors’ locations, annual supplier reviews and potential alternative suppliers.

Furthermore, we expect our suppliers to share our principles in terms of responsible conduct towards employees, customers, subcontractors and the public, and to practice them in their own companies.
