Leonardo Group Purchases

Leonardo purchases a wide range of products and services every year to support its production processes and continued growth in national and international markets through a sound relationship with suppliers.

In organising its Procurement & Supply Chain, the Central Unit Chief Procurement & Supply Chain Officer coordinates the definition and implementation of global strategies and transversal supply chain management initiatives; it chairs the Leonardo Purchasing Committee and ensures the development, implementation, management and supervision of all centralised procurement support services. The Procurement Units of the various Divisions oversee the entire procurement process for the Leonardo Group’s core product categories, focusing particularly on their respective business areas.
