Construction “Made in Germany” combines German virtues such as reliability and adherence to schedules with an emphatic commitment to quality and sustainability.

This technical expertise is supplemented by extensive experience and knowledge of the legal, social and cultural background and characteristics in the respective international markets. By definition, construction companies perform their production services on-site in the country concerned and, therefore, experts from Germany are used to working hand-in-hand with local partners. By doing so, the subsidiaries and affiliates of the German international contractors contribute to maintaining highly qualified jobs on the home markets.
