Local and long-term partner

Long-term partnerships characterize our supply chain. We have partnered with many suppliers for more than twenty years, with some over fifty years.

During the reporting period 2016-2017 the total number of suppliers and service-providers was approximately 970. Most of them, about 96 %, are local, close to our European production sites.

Close to markets

Oras Group optimizes its logistics with a network of distribution centres strategically located close to the production sites and main markets. In the area of transports, Oras Group has built long-term collaboration with transport service providers.
