2013: Generation change

When asked in retrospect, what was her greatest personal highlight in her almost 50-year career at Doppstadt, Hedwig replied: “The birth of my son!”

Werner Doppstadt handed over the company’s management to his son Ferdinand

After 48 years of continuously expanding and consolidating the company, Werner Doppstadt handed over the company’s management to his son Ferdinand. By doing so, the company, which has become a global actor and has a staff of 700 employees, remains family-owned.

Ferdinand Doppstadt continues to run the company by upholding the values and traditions of his family while pursuing a new strategic orientation. With the “Doppstadt 2020 – Fit for the future” strategy and a strong management team, he is positioning the company as an internationally established full-line supplier that is able to provide or develop, if necessary, the appropriate technology for every environmental challenge. To this end, Ferdinand Doppstadt relies on machinery and machine components that are compatible with one another.

In addition to that, Ferdinand Doppstadt is pursuing cooperation. As a specialist in environmental technology, he is specifically looking to partner with other premium manufacturers in order to pool their expertise and know-how for designing and jointly building top-of-the-line products. That is the only way for highly specialized companies like Doppstadt to distinguish themselves and meet the customers’ ever increasing demands and requirements on quality and cost-effectiveness on the international market.
