Purchasing, Production and Quality Management

To remain competitive in the international distribution markets, an advanced organizational structure, a high degree of professionalism, as well as a high degree of international connectivity are essential. As a result, the HMS has at its disposal a well established network of suppliers, manufacturers and quality managers, which provides both a high degree of flexibility and warrants a smooth workflow.

The product sourcing processes are defined by the individual requirements of our licensing partners regarding direction of design, the level of quality and the desired price structure. HMS’ manufacturers in Europe are primarily located in Portugal, Italy and Romania. Further, there are close ties to suppliers and manufacturers in China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Indonesia and India.

A vital basis for our cooperation with manufacturers is provided by the HMS Code of Conduct, underlining our principle of retaining high ethical standards. These same high standards are also expected from our business partners and manufacturers. Furthermore, quality controllers regularly conduct inspections, as well as the licensor performing independent audits.
