Your service company
Trust is the basis of every partnership. Trust that we, as a family-managed company, have earned for more than 85 years: with high standards of quality, which we ensure through efficient project management. With qualified employees who, in connection with the KÖTTER Academy, have access to a broad offering of support and continuing education. With new services that we continually develop. What else can you count on? Taking on social and ecological responsibility is part of our corporate culture.
Independent family business
The KÖTTER Group operates on the market as an independentfamily business and will remain so into the future. Today, the corporate group is managed by Friedrich P. Kötter and his sister Martina Kötter, the third generation. As a family business, we make our decisions independently of shareholders and financial investors. Our strategy is aligned for the long term. Our approach and investments are consequently not aligned with short-term market success; rather, we are interested in long-term partnerships with our customers.
