- Annual Report
For over a year, the coronavirus pandemic has presented unforeseen challenges and continues to do so. We have met these challenges and come well through the crisis so far. Three factors have been crucial:
The Dussmann Group’s diverse business model, its broad market positioning and the wide range of client sectors have proved to be strengths. The fall of global Group sales by 2.6 percent to around 2.1 billion euros in 2020, with an improved EBITDA margin, was largely due to the decline in our catering operations, where sales slumped due to the closure of staff restaurants and schools. Simultaneously, demand for other services grew, such as those of our state-certified disinfectors, who carried out disinfection of entire facilities, including at Webasto.
We at Dussmann have kept our sights set firmly on the future throughout lockdowns and crises. We have made important progress in the implementation of our Group strategy Dussmann Next Level to make the company fit for the post-coronavirus era.
We are proud of the over 60,000 people who work for the company and thank them for continuing to carry out excellent work over the past year under enormous pressure. This annual report is dedicated to the everyday professionals who make this family enterprise what it is – some of whom you‘ll meet on the following pages, representatives of everyone who works for our company.
In the coming year, we will continue to work hard on the success of our business partnerships and our contribution to preventing the spread of the coronavirus; only if every-one pulls together can we beat the pandemic. Above all, we will continue to invest in making our business future-fit.
