Better means more productive, safer and more sustainable. With our offering of hardware, software and services, our about 34,000 team members in more than 120 countries around the world work towards this goal. 

Our strategic objective is value creation through leadership, built on differentiation and direct customer relationships.

With our direct sales approach, we have more than 280,000 customer contacts each day. These customer contacts are an invaluable source of innovation. We invest approximately 7 percent of sales each year in research and development. From research and product development to manufacturing, logistics, sales and services, we cover the entire value-added chain.

We are challenging ourselves every day and staying abreast of the latest technology. In this way, we are able to drive innovation by addressing the needs of our customers in terms of productivity, safety and sustainability, with the aim of making construction better. This provides a sense of purpose. In fact, it’s fun!
