As part of a group you are stronger - which benefits both our members and our customers

The members of the Brückner Group benefit from the strengths associated with membership of the group. At the same time we support the independence of the group members. They are able to focus on the individual markets while enjoying the advantages of group membership:

  • a strong worldwide presence
  • technological knowledge-transfer where applicable
  • a leading position in a globalizing world

The Brückner Group with its approx. 2,500 employees worldwide comprises the following main companies under the roof of the parent company:

Holding

Brückner Group GmbH
Brückner Group GmbH
Siegsdorf

The Brückner Group is managed by Brückner Group GmbH, the strategic management holding and parent company of which the member companies form part. The holding is as lean as possible in line with our core strategy that the group derives its strength from the strength of its constituent members.

 

The prime focus of Brückner Group GmbH therefore lies in concentrating activities which are essential for the management of the group, from group controlling and risk management to internal auditing and group HR. At the same time it also pools resources which bring real added value to the group members by centralizing key expertise and specialist knowledge. These include, for example, the pooled treasury and financing as well as legal and tax expertise. The holding can thus provide its member companies with world-class service.
