Supplier Management.


There are over one thousand individual parts needed to produce one mobile C-arm. We purchase the majority of these components from our external partners.

Our goal is to supply our production process with the necessary components of the highest quality at the right time by working in close cooperation with our suppliers. In doing so, we join efforts to ensure that Ziehm Imaging maintains its role as technological leader for the long-term.

Ziehm Imaging purchasing principles

Compliance with quality standards is an important factor. Open communication and trouble-shooting in record time are very important to us.

Our highly specialized market is characterized by a relatively low sales volume, a great variety of models and seasonal fluctuations. For us, flexibility, adaptability and rapid response speed are requirements for our collaboration.

Cost responsibility
We greatly value a competitive cost structure. The willingness to take part in a joint value analysis and collaboration with other suppliers is a high priority for us. In addition, we consider the proactive integration of alternative production processes and materials to be the basis for mutual success.

Supplier relationship

Our success in strategic purchasing is founded on a fostering of our long-term supplier relationships. We are looking for capable and forward-looking suppliers whose openness and fairness sets them apart and who thereby support our innovation process.
