In addition to OEMs, the automotive sector includes their suppliers and companies engaged in the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles.

In order to prevail against global competition, companies in the automotive sector have to be present in the new growth markets both with development & production facilities as well as sales centers.

For many years, Drees & Sommer has been supporting automotive companies – including nearly all major automobile manufacturers and suppliers – with their construction projects worldwide. Drees & Sommer maintains a local presence to provide a combination of German engineering with in-depth local knowledge. 

Project management is a key focus of activity. The provision of professional cost, schedule and quality management achieves savings, secures deadlines, and ensures early identification of potential risks for the client. New approaches such as Lean Construction Management play a crucial role, particularly in automotive industry projects. Integrative logistics concepts, for example, allow construction to take place without disrupting production. Moreover, the Drees & Sommer industry experts integrate planning services into interdisciplinary system planning, develop energy-saving concepts, and manage the commissioning of automotive plants in Germany and abroad.
