Group structure

In line with the Shape4Growth strategy to boost profitable volume growth, dormakaba is about to further optimize its organizational structure.

Until the end of the financial year 2022/23, it consisted of the three regional segments within Access Solutions (AS): Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe & Africa – supported by Global Functions: Marketing & Products, Operations, and Product Development – as well as the segment Key & Wall Solutions (KWS).

As of 1 July 2023, the organizational structure was simplified and now consists of dormakaba's core global commercial business Access Solutions – supported by Global Functions – Operations, and Innovation. The Original Equipment Manufacturer business (OEM) of Region Asia-Pacific was moved to Key & Wall Solutions, being renamed to Key & Wall Solutions and OEM (KWO).

The companies that lie within the Group’s scope of consolidation are listed in the Financial Statements.
