In the role as Sourcing Manager, you are responsible for the commercial strategy for surface treatment within the Commodity Purchasing group, including securing the right supplier base for this segment.
As this is a newly started up segment, focus will be on creating a structure together with R&D, the Quality Assurance group and suppliers to ensure optimisation of quality, delivery and cost for all delivered parts to Scania.
