Bechtle Vision 2020.

Bechtle AG.

IT System House & Managed Services.



Company Structure.

Bechtle's success is based on the centralisation of the administrative branches (e.g. finance, personnel, purchasing, logistics and corporate communication) under the roof of the holding company which also incorporates the Logistik & Service GmbH. This ensures that the turnover generating business segments, i.e. the IT system houses and IT e-commerce, can focus on their respective core competencies. This efficient concept not only guarantees the freedom required for optimum customer care, but also increases profitability through lean processes and the consolidation of purchasing volumes. In short: Bechtle combines the strength and integrity of an international corporation with the proximity, personal care and flexibility of a regional service provider.
