Roots are regional.
Success is global.

Family-owned through four generations, the Umdasch Group fully appreciates the classic values of corporate sustainability: reliability, trust, responsibility.

With more than 7,000 employees in over 170 countries on 5 continents, the Group has come a long way from its early days in its home town of Amstetten in Austria. A global perspective is essential for international success. So too are orientation toward world markets, flexibility and dynamism, and a willingness to change. All combined they are a tremendous success factor. Successfully combining them all is a huge challenge.

Umdasch Group grows again in 2016

2017-06-29 | Umdasch Group

The Amstetten-based, 100% family-owned Umdasch Group grew its business last year for the sixth time in succession. The increases are partly due to healthy market developments, but they are also the result of a growth strategy oriented toward acquisitions and stakes in other companies. Revenues of EUR 1.28 billion put Group growth at +5.1 % over the previous year. Earnings before taxes were EUR 92 million, up 26 % from EUR 73 million in 2015. The equity ratio went up as well, reaching a historic high of 58.6 %. Cash flow from operating activities is a key performance indicator for production-intensive businesses. It was improved by more than 50 % to EUR 101 million (2015: EUR 64 million) – testimony to excellent working-capital management. The number of employees increased by more than 300 to a total of 7,641. These increases were both domestic and international.

Business units

The Umdasch Group is an umbrella organisation with three companies.

The Doka Group develops and produces formwork solutions for cast-in-place concrete construction. The portfolio covers everything from the world's most complex construction projects to classic single-family housing builds. It is a field that calls for specific engineering expertise just as much as innovative technology and decades of experience. 92 % of Group business is non-domestic, so the focus is sharply international.

Doka Ventures deals with new technologies in construction. The company engages actively in models for optimization of the construction process in its entirety. By participating in or initiating research and development projects, through supporting technology start-ups and by acquiring companies that specialise in pioneering methods.

The Umdasch Shopfitting Group is a specialist in the field from which it takes its name. Consulting and project management make the company an important partner for trade and commerce – particularly whenever the need arises for innovative concepts combining classic business and digital trade.


The Umdasch Group is the holding for the three operational businesses Doka Group, Doka Ventures and Umdasch Shopfitting Group. A lean and powerful organisation is crucial for market competitiveness. The philosophy: Encourage businessmen and businesswomen in the business. That means: short reporting channels, shallow hierarchies, maximised decision-taking competence – and therefore responsibility – for the individual specialist sections.

Corporate responsibility

Corporate social responsibility has become the established norm in recent years, and sustainability and social responsibility in the Umdasch Group are a matter of course: without sustainability there can be no enterprise. Strong internationalisation and the associated activities in regions and countries with many different cultures gave us grounds to develop a code for a common understanding of the ethics of trading and co-operation.
