Drees & Sommer AG is now a European Company

Since April 26, 2017 Drees & Sommer AG has been operating as a Societas Europaea (SE). The move to this legal form is a logical consequence of the dynamic development of the company.

Company management decided to undertake this conversion in view of the company’s increasing internationalization and to maintain its growth trajectory in foreign markets. The European company form supports Drees & Sommer’s key principles: The One-Company approach, a clear, functional organization with efficient bodies, and entrepreneurship practiced across national borders.


The conversion has no impact on existing contracts – they all remain completely valid. And the tried and tested structure of Drees & Sommer AG – with the Partners, Annual General Meeting, Supervisory Board, and Executive Board – will be retained. “On this basis, we are well positioned for the future, particularly in the international context. Added to which, the European legal form gives us an opportunity to emphasize our internationality,” said Peter Tzeschlock, Chairman of the Executive Board of Drees & Sommer SE.
