Support Divisions

The Debrunner Koenig Group consolidates its administrative processes and activities in its support divisions Finance & Legal and Corporate Services, which act as business partners for the product divisions. The central functions bring a high degree of efficiency and quality to our core services. Group-wide bundling of central tasks ensures high process reliability and the efficient exploitation of synergies.

Digitalisation & IT

The Digitalisation & IT support division plans and operates adequate, high-quality IT services to support the product divisions. The function is responsible for designing the overall IT architecture and ensures the availability and security of the deployed systems and data at all times.

The dedicated specialists are charged with accelerating the digital transformation of the Debrunner Koenig Group and are therefore in close contact with the IT and digitalisation functions of the parent company Klöckner&Co.

The Business Excellence & Work Safety support division ensures the efficiency of business processes. This includes the continuous further development of the SAP business management software, which ensures smooth handling of the company’s core business.

In cooperation with the divisions, the applicable occupational safety standards and quality requirements are continually reviewed and adjusted as needed. The certified quality management system of the Debrunner Koenig Group is sustainably designed and continuously improved as well as being regularly inspected in cooperation with external authorities.
