The Rohde & Schwarz electronics group has signed a comprehensive global procurement agreement with Huber+Suhner, a leading global manufacturer of connectivity solutions for radio frequency, fiber optics and low frequency technologies.

The global framework agreement ensures the support of Huber+Suhner for optimal worldwide components supplies and technical consultation. At the same time, it stabilizes the status of the company as a preferred supplier and lays the foundation for continuing and enhancing an intensive working relationship.

Manufacturing high tech Rohde & Schwarz products poses complex challenges for the group's supply chain. Deliveries of electronic assemblies and subsystems must be on time, high quality and economical. Peter Schlindwein, Vice President of Corporate Procurement at Rohde & Schwarz, said, "We need suppliers who provide us flexible and competent support to meet market demands. In this regard, global agreements are important steps for cooperation as equals."

The two companies have been cooperating for many years. Reto Bolt, COO of Huber+Suhner’s Radio Frequency Division, said, "We are proud to have leading companies like Rohde & Schwarz as key accounts. This long term cooperation drives us to develop future oriented solutions for our mutual market success."
