Aware that having a diversified supply chain guaranteeing supply and service to customers is paramount, we have built a dynamic, flexible and sustainable network of local suppliers which allows us to be better prepared to face any global market disruption.
Our procurement policies aim to build a solid foundation of certified suppliers with the aim to meet customer demands and expectations through efficient and transparent management, all with the intent to continuously identify and mitigate inherent social and environmental risks throughout the supply chain.
Supply chain management is coordinated by Procurement, a department considered cross-functional and strategic in the management of projects developed by Soltec.
This department has four clearly differentiated functional areas which are aligned to Soltec’s strategy:
The functions performed by the Procurement department, from the sourcing phase to supplier accreditation and selection for purchase operations, are carried out in line with key principles and sustainability criteria defined in the Procurement Policy, approved in 2020.
These principles are based on the company’s quality certificates and on the United Nations Global Compact principles.
Over the last few years, we built a supply chain management model which allows us, on the one hand, to guarantee the supply of solar trackers to customers while mitigating the effects of market disruptions and, on the other hand, to offer new support services to photovoltaic plants through our extensive network of local contractors who are in a better position to adapt and respond to major industry disruptions.
This management model required us to expand and diversify the number of suppliers of products, materials and services, with the aim to provide customers with quick supply alternatives, regardless of their geographical location. To this end, we have made the supplier accreditation process more flexible and streamlined, building a large global supplier network which helps us place orders quickly and efficiently.
In November 2021, we rolled out a project using the Lean methodology, with the aim to enhance tracker supply project management.
Through the definition of responsibilities, the aim is to optimize supply chain management processes and remove tasks which do not add value, with the ultimate goal of promoting a cultural change focused on the improvement of project management.
We have internationally recognized certifications that guarantee our supply chain, guaranteeing responsible and high quality products.
Soltec was born with the purpose of creating a clean, sustainable and fair world based on efficient photovoltaic energy production. To achieve this, since its inception Soltec has been committed to leading the global photovoltaic energy market, offering reliable solutions through the most advanced technology.
