Business units

The Umdasch Group is an umbrella organisation with three companies.

Doka develops and produces formwork solutions for cast-in-place concrete construction. The portfolio covers everything from the world's most complex construction projects to classic single-family housing builds. It is a field that calls for specific engineering expertise just as much as innovative technology and decades of experience. 92 % of Group business is non-domestic, so the focus is sharply international.

Umdasch Group Ventures deals with new technologies in construction. The company engages actively in models for optimization of the construction process in its entirety. By participating in or initiating research and development projects, through supporting technology start-ups and by acquiring companies that specialise in pioneering methods.

Umdasch The Store Makers is a specialist in the field from which it takes its name. Consulting and project management make the company an important partner for trade and commerce – particularly whenever the need arises for innovative concepts combining classic business and digital trade.


The Umdasch Group is the holding for the three operational businesses Doka, Umdasch Group Ventures and umdasch. A lean and powerful organisation is crucial for market competitiveness. The philosophy: Encourage businessmen and businesswomen in the business. That means: short reporting channels, shallow hierarchies, maximised decision-taking competence – and therefore responsibility – for the individual specialist sections.

Corporate responsibility

Corporate social responsibility has become the established norm in recent years, and sustainability and social responsibility in the Umdasch Group are a matter of course: without sustainability there can be no enterprise. Strong internationalisation and the associated activities in regions and countries with many different cultures gave us grounds to develop a code for a common understanding of the ethics of trading and co-operation.
