More growth for the D+H brand
The Austrian service and sales company of D+H has now taken up the plot of land previously occupied by D+H Deutschland GmbH under its own company name. "D+H Brandrauch-Lüftungssysteme GmbH", which is based in Vösendorf, Austria and led by Alfred Strohmayer, is now called "D+H Österreich GmbH". With this step, the D+H Group is strengthening its international brand positioning. D+H Österreich GmbH is also expanding its working radius. It has added another branch office in Tyrol and the Carinthia location is expanding its personnel.
"We now offer all services, including planning support, acceptance and high-quality maintenance, of smoke extraction and ventilation systems throughout Austria," explains Alfred Strohmayer. Prior to the change of name, the area of operation of the company was limited to Austria. A campaign is now in the planning stages. In October 2018, D+H Österreich will open a branch office in Tyrol and the branch office in Carinthia is expanding its personnel. Other branch offices are already being planned. "We will work together with our D+H partner network and a new, strengthened structure to ensure that the future of D+H is even more successful while continuing to advance the market in Austria," says Strohmayer, who has been working at the D+H Group for 18 years now.
D+H is one of the leading suppliers of window drive and control system solutions for smoke extraction and natural ventilation. The D+H Group now consists of eight service and sales companies and more than 130 partners and customers around the globe. In addition to Germany and Austria, D+H also has service and sales companies in Russia, Great Britain, Poland, Denmark, Sweden and Portugal as well as other branch offices. "We are taking a highly dynamic and passionate approach to confronting the growing requirements and challenges of an international group," says Christoph Kern, CSO for Sales and Innovation Management at D+H Mechatronic AG. "And in the process, our culture of a responsible family-owned company is preserved at all times."
Approximately 250 employees work at the D+H headquarters in Ammersbek in the Hamburg region, while globally this figure grows to about 550 employees. The German company is especially proud of its production. All window drive and control system solutions are produced at a single location in Germany. "You can feel the ,Made in Germany’ quality in each one of our solutions," says Christoph Kern. "This is certainly a factor that also positively influences our international growth."
