International Network

International Business Network

Global markets are a huge challenge for international purchasing organizations. Selecting the best options from a large number of potential markets and a vast army of potential suppliers is risky, cost-intensive and consuming a lot of time. In order to support the procurement interests of our members, we maintain close contacts with political institutions at home and abroad. We are steadily expanding our worldwide network and in many areas, we actively support our members in planned sourcing measures.

As one of the largest buying groups in Europe, the BME is the perfect partner for building a worldwide network between purchasers, suppliers, institutions and politicians. We perform a bridging function to synchronize the procurement interests between German companies and international markets.
