The Umdasch Group is an umbrella organisation with three companies.

Doka is a world leader in providing innovative formwork, solutions and services in all areas of construction. The company is also a global supplier of well-thought-out scaffolding solutions for a varied spectrum of applications. 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. 90 % of Group business is non-domestic, so the focus is sharply international. Digitalization is a major focus for Doka: offering products and services that make its customers' projects more efficient and economical, as well as making construction processes more transparent and sustainable, is a declared goal of Doka

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.

Umdasch Group Ventures deals with new technologies in construction as well as in retail. The company engages actively in models for optimizing a construction project along its entire life cycle. By participating in or initiating research and development projects, through supporting technology start-ups and by acquiring companies that specialise in pioneering methods.


The Umdasch Group forms the holding company for the three operating divisions Doka, umdasch The Store Makers and Umdasch Group Ventures. Its mission: the sustainable development of the entire company group through profitable growth. The holding plays a strong leadership role in this respect.

Dr. Wolfgang Litzlbauer will take over as President and CEO of the Umdasch Group on July 1, 2021, and thus the challenge of leading the global group into a promising future.

Corporate Responsibility

In 2018, the Umdasch Group decided to consider sustainability as an integral part of its corporate strategy. This means that the relevant operational processes of its divisions will be reviewed and successively adjusted with regard to their sustainability. This takes into account economic, ecological and social aspects in equal measure. Since 2019, the company has been reporting not only financially but also non-financially with the Integrated Annual Report.
