We plan to expand the scope of our technical services significantly whilst maintaining the standards of our current core business. Our goal is to lift Dussmann Service to the next level with innovative solutions for the wide range of challenges that confront our clients. This means involving ourselves in our clients’ processes and creating solutions that are customized and flexible.” He summarizes his approach: “Ultimately, we seek the best available solution for the client”.
