We purchase a wide range of raw materials and components from external suppliers. We closely monitor the quality and reliability of these suppliers. In total, Electrolux Professional contracts around 3,300 suppliers.

Purchased materials represent about 64% of our product costs. Steel, both austenitic and carbon steel, and mechanical components are traditionally the largest commodities, while electronics have increased substantially in recent years.

Purchasing 2022
In 2022, expenditure on direct material and products totalled approximately SEK 4.3bn, which accounts for approximately 69% of total purchasing.

Raw material prices increased substantially during 2022 due to higher world market prices. This is a result of global uncertainty after the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. In addition, the global shortage of components has created much higher costs as we have been forced to buy more on spot markets.

The direct materials bought in 2022 were primarily mechanical materials such as steel, aluminium, and cast iron, amounting to approximately 36% of total direct material expenditure.
