In addition to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), the automotive sector includes their suppliers and the companies that maintain and repair motor vehicles.
In order to prevail against global competition, companies in the automotive sector have to have a presence in the new growth markets, with development and production facilities as well as sales centers.
For many years, Drees & Sommer has been supporting the automotive industry – including nearly all major automobile manufacturers and suppliers – with their construction projects worldwide. Drees & Sommer maintains a local presence to provide a combination of German engineering with in-depth local knowledge.
Project management is a key focus of activity.
