Generations of Trust
As owners, we are thankful and proud that 125 years after our first industrial undertaking – of a cement factory in Wietersdorf – through generations of forward-looking entrepreneurship, we have created an international and diversified construction infrastructure business group. Over the course of our history, we had the courage to change, and overcame many challenges thanks to our stamina, consistency, and solidarity. Being rooted in our region and a down-to-earth attitude have been, and continue to be, as important as constant striving for innovation.
The stable foundation on which we build our company’s future is based on tradition and reliability. Our activities always center around people. Supported by solid business figures and underpinned by a culture that values togetherness, our goal for the future is to remain a reliable partner for our employees, customers, and suppliers.
The Company Board acts as a condensed shareholder’s meeting and is the company’s strategic and decision-making committee.
Its members lead the company and serve as a link between the owners and the group’s companies.
