Factsheet of the Dürr Group

The Dürr Group is one of the world's leading mechanical and plant engineering firms with particular expertise in the technology fields of automation, digitalization, and energy efficiency. Its products, systems, and services enable highly efficient and sustainable manufacturing processes – mainly in the automotive industry and for producers of furniture and timber houses, but also in sectors such as the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, medical devices, electrical engineering, and battery production. In 2023, the company generated sales of €4.6 billion. The Dürr Group has over 20,500 employees and 142 business locations in 32 countries, and it operates in the market with five divisions.

Strategy and mid-cycle targets

Our corporate strategy is oriented to both profitability and growth. It aims to act on opportunities in established core business as well as in new or high-growth business areas. Our strategy is linked to several KPI targets:

  • 5 to 6% sales growth: Sales are to grow by an average of 5% to 6% per year between 2023 and 2030, reaching more than €6 billion in 2030.
  • High profitability: The EBIT margin before extraordinary effects is to widen to at least 8%. This is a mid-cycle target, achievement of which is predicated on normal market conditions free of any major dislocations.
  • Attractive return on capital: We are aiming for an ROCE of at least 25%. This is also a mid-cycle target and underpinned by high EBIT contributions from mechanical engineering and low capital employed in plant engineering.
  • Good cashflows: From 2025 onward, we are aiming for a cash conversion rate of at least 80% (free cash flow is at least 80% of earnings after tax).
  • Solid balance sheet: The ratio of net financial liabilities to EBITDA should not exceed 2.0.
  • Increased share of service business: With its higher margins, service business is to consistently contribute at least 30% to Group sales.

We have identified five strategic fields that are critical for achieving our goals and expanding our leadership in the global market: glocal (global/local), technology leadership, digitalization, efficiency, and life cycle services. We have also defined four enablers, i.e. supporting functions, which are particularly important for the successful implementation of the strategy. These are sustainability management, mergers & acquisitions, finance management, and people development.

→ Sustainability in the Dürr Group

Down to earth:

The Dürr Group has been in existence for over → 125 years. The company has developed from a workshop into a global corporation. At the same time, we have preserved the spirit of a medium-sized company in the best sense: Our employees have a sense of reliability and quality, they react quickly to changes and take decisive action. Just as customers expect from a medium-sized company. The hierarchies are flat, the paths short — and everyone pitches in. Even today, the founding Dürr family still holds more than 25% of the company.
