  • Bombardier Transportation GmbH

    Siegen-based BOMBARDIER Transportation GmbH focuses on developing and producing bogies for trains. Over 200,000 bogies are successfully in operation worldwide, and BOMBARDIER’s are known globally for their quality, innovation and performance. The environment at BOMBARDIER’s purchases department is characterised by top safety-related standards for material, quality and suppliers, and involves upholding special rail permit rules and legal regulations issued by the Federal Railway Authority. This was the environment in which THESEN AG advised us. In order to successfully reduce product costs while retaining top quality, purchasers, developers and production staff all need to work together. THESEN AG masters its craft perfectly, and involves staff in the project. Its extensive knowledge of the relevant procurement market provided important stimulation and significant potential for saving. We particularly valued the THESEN team’s flexibility when taking into account supplier-specific factors, as emphasis was placed not just on short-term savings, but also on a solid supplier relationship for the mid-term. Valuable results were achieved, in compliance with BOMBARDIER’s specific quality specifications. We found THESEN AG to be a strong, competent project partner, and the co-operation was characterised by the staff’s long-time experience, the clear knowledge of the procurement market, and the high degree of professionalism and methodological competence. We would gladly recommend THESEN AG’s consulting services.
    The extensive knowledge of the relevant procurement market provided important impulses and significant savings potential. We particularly appreciated the flexibility of the THESEN team when it came to taking supplier-specific features into account. This is particularly because value was placed not only on short-term savings, but also on a stable supplier relationship in the medium term. Valuable results have been shown while maintaining the BOMBARDIER-specific quality specifications. We have come to appreciate THESEN AG as a strong and competent project partner. The many years of experience of the employees, the extensive knowledge of the procurement market, the high level of professionalism and methodological competence characterize the cooperation.

  • Schunk Group

    The THESEN AG was given the assignment to accompany the cross-company and cross-border introduction of lead buying. The technical, methodological and implementational know-how of the THESEN AG helped us to structure the project, to master the up-coming challenges and to guarantee a pragmatic implementation. In times of limited in-house resources the THESEN AG supported us by providing staff of their own. Further the consulting experts knew how to accelerate the project continuously – even in difficult stages; thus we could realize the further objectives in addition to significant savings. We will gladly ask the THESEN AG in the case of further procurement optimizations, and we will gladly recommend your services to others.

  • Weiss-Group

    The Weiss Group develops and produces devices and systems to simulate environmental conditions which must meet the highest industrial and scientific standards, and withstand immense loads and strains. Our customers frequently test their materials to the limits of their capacity. In 2014, to ensure competitiveness and compensate for general cost increases, the Weiss Group’s purchases department started up a cost-reduction project, defined by a fixed cost-reduction quota. To do this, the Weiss Group hired THESEN AG to provide consulting and support services.

    Even during the tendering phase, it was clear to us that there was a huge variation between purchase consultants. It was important for us to find a consultant with a high level of technical expertise, who properly understood our processes and suppliers, who shared and fulfilled our cost-reduction goal, who responsibly assisted with and operationally supported the implementation of results, and who set their fees on a pure performance basis. It was also important that the consultant be able to incorporate synergies from other purchase projects.

    Having completed the cost-reduction project with THESEN, we can say that THESEN AG met our expectations in virtually every respect.

    THESEN was our partner every step of the way in our structured preparation and execution of the cost-reduction project. The individual project stages were attended to in a highly concentrated, systematic and efficient manner, allowing the entire project to be completed successfully. The team at THESEN AG was able to find solutions to the challenging problems with great skill, patience and regard for the human factor in dealings with our suppliers and purchases staff.

    The THESEN methods and strategies were always clearly and precisely formulated, well co-ordinated, and accurately applied. The operational and strategic consulting and support, coupled with the incorporation of synergies by an objective and neutral partner, were particularly crucial to us. And our expectations were once again met in this respect.

    The best testimonial for a consultant is to be awarded another contract. And THESEN AG has been hired to perform a group-wide purchases project by the Weiss Group’s holding company (Schunk Holding).

    We can and will gladly recommend THESEN AG’s services, and wish the entire THESEN team all the best for the future.

    Rhön Klinikum

    The extensive expertise of the THESEN AG consultants and the results-oriented co-operation enabled us to smoothly implement and further develop the new Rhön-Klinikum AG plan. Although the initial situation was quite complex, THESEN was able to gain a foothold and cleanly set up the cost-reduction project. Right from the outset, the THESEN AG consultants were strong sparring partners who knew when to ask the right questions. The co-operation was one of great transparency, a clear focus on goals, and effectiveness. The results-oriented free model is based on THESEN AG assuming a high level of corporate responsibility. THESEN AG considerably helped us increase our savings potentials, which are often only seen from an external perspective. THESEN AG stands for pragmatic approaches, accompanied by a high level of methodological competence, a focus on implementing a jointly defined strategy, and precise communication in comprehensible terms – exactly what we expect but very rarely find from consultants. We would gladly recommend THESEN AG as a consultant.

  • AXA

    AXA LogoIn connection with a long-term cost-reducing project and after a sophisticated and detailed selection process, AXA very consciously decided in favor of the support by THESEN AG. Apart from results-effective savings, we were also interested in an external view on our procurement processes and organization, in particular in combination with the different departments and affiliated companies.

    Überzeugt haben uns die branchenübergreifenden Erfahrungen, das routinierte Team und insbesondere die vom ersten Tag an sehr klare, ausgewogene und lösungsorientierte Kommunikations- und Arbeitsweise. Während andere Anbieter mit teilweise erstaunlich hohen Einsparungserfolgen für sich warben, hat THESEN AG mit uns in einem differenzierten und fundierten Prozess erarbeitet, welche Potentiale in welchen Warengruppen unter welchen Bedingungen realistisch sind. Wir haben nicht den Anbieter gewählt, der uns die größten Einsparungen versprochen hat. Vielmehr haben wir mit THESEN AG den Anbieter gewählt, der unter Beachtung unseres spezifischen Umfelds und unserer Kultur die höchsten wirklich realisierbaren (!) Einsparungen erbringen kann. So waren uns ein integratives Vorgehen mit dem Einkaufsteam und allen Fachbereichen sowie eine weiterhin konstruktive Zusammenarbeit mit unseren externen Partnern sehr wichtig. Geholfen hat uns dabei, dass wir die Expertise von THESEN AG in einer sehr großen Bandbreite nutzen konnten – vom reinen Impulsgeber für unsere Einkäufer bis hin zum eigenständigen Verhandeln mit externen Partnern. Bemerkenswert ist, dass das ganze Team von THESEN AG auch in schwierigen Situationen niemals aufgegeben hat, sondern in einer bewundernswerten Ausdauer und Energie mit uns an machbaren Lösungen gearbeitet hat: Immer fragend, niemals wertend. Immer routiniert, niemals arrogant. Immer treibend, niemals realitätsfremd. Immer klar, niemals unfreundlich. Immer sachlich, niemals unemphatisch.
    Das Projekt hat zählbare Einsparungserfolge für AXA gebracht, die ohne die Kenntnis der Besonderheiten unserer Branche und unserer besonders kritischen Warengruppen (insbesondere IT) seitens THESEN AG nicht möglich gewesen wären. Daneben haben wir viele wertvolle Ideen und Perspektiven für die weitere Bearbeitung unserer Warengruppen und Einkaufsprozesse erhalten. Unser guter erster Eindruck von THESEN AG hat den Realitätscheck bestanden.

Our long-time partnership with both Mr Thesen himself and his team has been extremely profitable, and is characterised by a high level of trust. I was initially very sceptical of the fee model, but the consistently positive results speak for themselves. The partnership has enabled us to significantly reduce procurement costs in key areas of facility management, e.g. electricity, telecommunications and packaging materials.

In doing so, THESEN strengthened our team’s resolve during times of staff cuts, and helped us implement more results faster, and achieve our challenging goals through the restructuring.”

    ABC Logo

    I make no secret of my initial scepticism of THESEN AG’s success-oriented business/fee model – these sorts of models can very quickly turn out to be shams, and put pressure on supplier relationships. But my experience in several projects with THESEN over 14 years has proven that their analyses and tendering processes are thorough and highly accurate, and dealings with suppliers were always appropriate and in keeping with our business understanding. I always found results to be implemented smoothly and in a goal-oriented manner. Interactions between purchase department staff, our suppliers and THESEN’s specialists were solution-focused and co-operative. THESEN AG’s consultants proved to be purchasing pros, who were able to gain an optimum understanding of all kinds of problems, and cater to specific needs. The high level of item-group expertise and in-depth supplier and market knowledge enable significant savings to be achieved in a short space of time. Our dealings with THESEN AG could hardly get any better. Over many years, I have found THESEN to be a consistently competent, effective partner with excellent judgement and experience.

    Vom Handwerksbetrieb zur Architektenmarke: So könnte man die Entwicklung unseres Unternehmens kurz und bündig beschreiben. Allerdings hat sich dieser Trend in den letzten beiden Jahrzehnten besonders stark beschleunigt hat. In den Jahren zuvor – Dallmer wurde ja schon 1913 als Gravieranstalt gegründet – fielen Dallmer Produkte, so innovativ sie auch sein mochten, schlicht und einfach in die Kategorie “Installationsmaterial”.

    Das hat sich geändert. Was heute zählt ist nicht mehr die reine Funktionalität unter Ausschluss jeglicher schöner Form. Aus dem “Bad zum Waschen” ist ein Raum für umfassende Körperkultur geworden. Mit zunehmender Individualisierung und einem wachsenden Bedürfnis nach Selbstverwirklichung, aber auch durch erhöhten Wohlstand begründet, haben Menschen begonnen, ihre Lebensräume wertvoller zu gestalten. Damit eröffnen sich für uns vielfältige Chancen, neue und schönere Lösungen für die Ableitung von Wasser in Gebäuden zu entwickeln.

    Das Dallmer Credo lautet: Perfekte Produkte entstehen aus einem Zusammenspiel von hervorragender Funktion, hoher Materialqualität und guter Gestaltung. Dass lange und intensiv daran gearbeitet wurde, sieht man oft schon auf den ersten Blick. Und das ist der Unterschied.

We initially hired THESEN AG to optimise our purchases department for the Episcopal Ordinariate and all diocesan institutions. The project involved optimising and saving costs for office supplies and equipment, food purchases for our conference facilities, cleaning materials, and candles. THESEN AG’s focus was to collect data within our own organisation and from suppliers in order to compile tendering documents.
    In addition to generating transparency and structuring requests, it also concentrated on optimising processes to ensure identified savings could be implemented and tracked. In most groups, this enabled costs to be reduced by a double-digit percentage. After this project was completed, we started another project with THESEN AG to pool power costs in the church communities, with over 2,000 consumption points, and sustainably reduce the power costs by concluding multi-year gas and electricity contracts with a small number of providers. We found THESEN AG to be a flexible, customer-oriented company with excellent technical expertise, and which is able to identify potentials for conflict and optimisation during the processes, and professionally ensure long-term solutions and cost reduction.
