Centrotec structure and strategy
Through its subsidiaries, the CENTROTEC Group is active mainly in the markets for energy efficiency and renewable energy in buildings. Since going public in 1998, the business volume has steadily been expanded profitably through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. This development has been based on the creation of a comprehensive, user-friendly, highly efficient product portfolio featuring solutions for heating, ventilation and climate control, plus renewable energy solutions for buildings. Together with the steadily expanded international presence and corresponding sales structures, this forms the basis of a long-term group strategy that will continue to focus on giving the individual group companies ample entrepreneurial leeway.
The CENTROTEC Group’s business activities are divided into three segments, of which the largest in revenue terms, Climate Systems, along with Gas Flue Systems, makes up the core business area for energy-saving solutions and renewable energy in buildings. The third segment Medical Technology & Engineering Plastics, which is the smallest by revenue, develops, produces and sells medical technology solutions and high-performance plastics.
CENTROTEC’s corporate philosophy is fundamentally based on granting considerable entrepreneurial freedom to the individual operating units as well as to employees and managers. This enables the operating subsidiaries to respond to their respective markets swiftly, innovatively and in a market-led manner. This entrepreneurial leeway moreover motivates employees, helps them to identify with their specific company and ultimately leads to lower employee turnover and sickness rates. Collaboration between the individual group companies is moreover being promoted across the segments in order to develop product solutions across all companies, make greater use of existing customer relations, open up or develop markets more effectively, optimize logistics processes and realize synergies in the purchasing and sales areas.
