Suppliers

The quality of the rail network is one of Infrabel's main priorities. It has a direct impact on the safety and punctuality of the trains. It is for precisely this reason that we work with the very best materials and the most competent suppliers. 

The Procurement Department

As a state-owned company, Infrabel is bound by the legislation in force. The procurement department ensures that this is correctly complied with. Infrabel makes its calls for tender accessible to all and prides itself on an honest and non-discriminatory policy open to all competitors.

The objectives of the Procurement Department are:

  • To organise public contracts by issuing a non-discriminatory call for tender to suppliers
  • To forge "win-win" partnerships between the internal client (the end user) and the supplier
  • To offer internal clients suppliers that provide high-quality products and deliver within contractual periods (just in time), in order for Infrabel to organise its works according to planned schedules and in accordance with the multi-year investment plan
  • To strive for competitive prices
  • To improve the quality of services
  • To promote innovation among suppliers within the company
  • To develop sustainable procurement processes
