Procurement & sourcing services | Avantor

With a heritage of scientific product innovation spanning more than 160 years, Avantor’s Procurement and Sourcing Services seamlessly integrate with our global VWR e-commerce platform, and its vast product portfolio, sourcing, and distribution network under the MarketSource program.

We help streamline the entire procurement process: from procurement to payment, core to tail spend, our infrastructure of lab products, reagents, customized solutions and responsive teams deliver seamless purchasing experiences. Through an ever-expanding MarketSource portfolio of over 2.5 million core products, combined with the millions of products already available from the VWR portfolio and Open Requisition, our custom ordering service, we manage over 10,000 vendor relationships to source product, negotiate pricing, and fulfill orders of any size, regardless of product location around the globe. The result is a one-stop procurement experience focused on maximizing supply chain and advancing science – from discovery to delivery.

A Key Differentiator in Science

Accelerating science is achievable when demand for lab products, available where and when you need them, is matched with reliable, cost-effective procurement. Though onboarding, managing vendors, price negotiations and delivery timeframes cost valuable time, your lab’s productivity is a key differentiator in successfully bringing new scientific breakthroughs to light.

Advancing Lab Productivity

With Avantor’s deep understanding of the demands placed on scientific discovery earned over 160 years, our Procurement and Sourcing Services, combined with Avantor's global VWR e-commerce platform and the MarketSource program, deliver over 2.5 million science-enabling products and streamlined processes to consolidate complex procurement requirements, manage expenditures, and ensure results.

Our expertise in supporting customized procurement models is complemented by streamlined vendor management, maximized supply chain resources and savings, and reduced tail spend, returning valuable time back to scientific operations. Our responsive, collaborative associates share product, technical, and regulatory knowledge along with global access to trusted, quality brands to ensure you have what you need, when and where you need it.
