About the Dussmann Group

From idea to worldwide success

Sixty years after it was first founded by Peter Dussmann, the Dussmann Group is doing better than ever. Starting with a good idea, we have developed into a global family company with some 66,000 motivated employees in 21 countries and 2.8 billion euros in sales. We are looking ahead to a promising fiscal year in 2023 as well, as we forge ahead with our next-level strategy and pursue our crystal-clear vision for the future of the Dussmann Group.


Part of this strategy is our constant exploration of innovations and megatrends such as New Work, digitalization, sustainability, and the demographic changes taking shape across society. On this basis, we supply our customers with precision-tailored solutions, all in service to the same credo we inherited from our founder, Peter Dussmann: "Identifying and serving people’s needs."
