The Zeppelin Group finished a successful 2022 fiscal year, with sales of EUR 3.8 billion (2021: EUR 3.7 billion) and earnings before taxes of EUR 135 million (2021: EUR 160 million), even though the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine had a negative impact on the result. Contributing to the Group’s performance on average in 2022 were a little over 10,000 employees at over 340 sites.
The Zeppelin Group is operationally and strategically managed in six strategic business units (SBUs). This organizational structure ensures its ability to focus on individual markets, customer groups, and product segments while managing activities across multiple countries and companies. The SBUs are divided into Construction Equipment Central Europe (“CE”), Construction Equipment Eurasia, Construction Equipment Nordics, Rental, Power Systems, and Plant Engineering. The structure supports the bundling of operations and the targeted orientation of the business models towards various markets and customers. The Group’s management holding company is Zeppelin GmbH. The Group IT Services Strategic Management Center (SMC) bundles all resources from the IT and digitalization divisions and supports the individual SBUs in a cross-functional manner. In terms of organization, it is integrated into Zeppelin GmbH as a holding company. The company is legally domiciled in Friedrichshafen, with its headquarters located in Garching near Munich.
More information on the organizational and management structure can be found in the Annual Report 2022. The report also lists the extensive range of products and services offered by the individual SBUs, and provides a detailed description of economic development.
