Welcome to the procurement site of RHI Magnesita!

As global refractory leaders, we strive to meet the requirements of our production and sales sites at all times, focusing on total cost of ownership and offering maximum supply security.

In order to continuously achieve this level of excellence, our procurement is divided into three different areas: global purchasing, regional purchasing and local purchasing. We foster synergies in these purchasing areas through the use of a global purchasing network and optimized collaboration and benchmarking between the individual purchasing units.


Our Purchasing Philosophy

We stand for the values “quality”, “innovation” and “an attitude of openness to change and new ideas” in all our corporate activities. We offer our customers refractory products and services of the highest quality standards. We also expect our suppliers and strategic partners to meet equally high quality requirements.
RHI Magnesita offers the possibility of a strategic partnership to committed suppliers, who excel due to a high level of reliability, cost consciousness and service orientation. Strategic partnerships are beneficial for both purchasers and suppliers, and ensure continuity in demand and supply. We invite you to become part of our success story.

  • total cost of ownership/price
  • service
  • quality
