‘At our company, tradition and innovation are in perfect symbiosis’

For almost 110 years, our family-owned company has been proud to stand for both continuity and change. With a spirit of innovation, sustainable concepts and an increasing use of digital options, Klüh has helped shape all areas of the market for infrastructure services. In the 2019 business year, our consistent commitment was greatly rewarded. We were gratified to receive numerous awards and honours and our clients – regionally, nationally and globally – continued to place their trust in our company. I was 20 years old when I took over the family company founded by my grandfather and developed it from a small window-cleaning operation into the number one cleaning company in my home city of Düsseldorf. I still feel a very special connection to this city and its inhabitants. We worked hard to expand our client base and rapidly built a presence throughout North Rhine-Westphalia. By 1976 we already had 3,000 employees and established Klüh Clinic Service to provide services to the healthcare sector. At the start of the 1990s, we created the Catering and Security divisions.

Around the same time, we opened branches across Germany. Our international expansion began in 2000 with a contract for the newly constructed airport in Athens. In 2011, we celebrated out company’s centenary with 41,000 employees in eleven countries. Today, Klüh is one of the leading facility management providers and has seen continuous growth. As the owner of the company and Chairman of the Advisory Board, I am proud and grateful for the outstanding performance of our employees, without which our success would not be possible. I would also like to thank my colleagues on the Advisory Board who have contributed their entrepreneurial vision and expertise to our company over many years. Last but not least, I would like to thank our clients for our fruitful collaboration and the confidence they place in us. I hope you enjoy reading this Annual Report.
