Purchasing at Xella Group

Xella manufactures and sells premium products. A careful selection of suppliers in light of total cost, quality, environmental awareness and compliance with the requirements of the Supplier Code of Conduct is important for this purpose.

We aim to improve the competitiveness of our products continuously together with our suppliers. Therefore, we expect our suppliers and other business partners to comply with our values.

Xella is working with a variety of national and international suppliers. We steadily develop our portfolio of capable suppliers and choose from the world’s best partners. Generally, Xella is always interested in cooperation with new business partners.

Xella Supplier Code of Conduct

Xella is committed to sustainable and economically responsible behavior. Therefore, basic principles in the areas of anti-discrimination, prohibition of child and forced labour, labour conditions and freedom of association, anti-corruption, confidentiality, discretion and data protection, as well as environmental protection and health and safety have been defined.

We want to share this basic understanding with our suppliers. For this purpose we developed the Xella Supplier Code of Conduct.

Safety is a top priority

This applies to us in dealing with our own employees and we also have this irrevocable claim to our contractual partners who work on the Xella company premises. In order to jointly and sustainably ensure the safety of all parties involved, the «Environmental, Health and Safety Requirements for Contractor Contracts» (in short: Safety Regulations) are therefore an integrated component of every order and assignment.

Information security for IT Providers

Information and computer equipment is, among other things, crucial for the success of the Xella Group. This document describes the basic computer security measures which aim at ensuring business continuity and minimize business damage in case of security incidents. Therefore, all IT-providers of the Xella Group have to comply with this guideline.
