Structure of product group management
Jungheinrich has established a comprehensive product group management system to facilitate reaching its procurement targets. Along the lines of the organisational structure of the product group management system, the demand requirements are structured according to our five areas with a total of 48 main product groups, each broken down into detailed product groups. A product group is made up of the parts and components and suppliers which, from a procurement perspective, deliver the most synergies. We have arranged them on the basis of the following two criteria: homogenous parts and component structure and homogenous supplier structure. Our main product groups are subdivided into five areas.
