In May 1963, Peter Dussmann took out a credit of 2,000 Marks and set up his own company with a good business idea.
Peter Dussmann always place emphasis on ensuring that his service portfolio reflects his clients changing needs and more than 55 years on, his business idea has grown into one of the leading facility management companies worldwide.
Today, Catherine von Fürstenberg-Dussmann heads the family enterprise and together with the executive board, manages the business according to the same principles as her husband. The Dussmann Kultur-Kindergarten child-care facilities were her inspiration. The evergreen vertical garden in Dussmann House and the adjacent café-restaurant Ursprung also bear her hallmark and symbolize the social responsibility of the Dussmann Group.
