TRADITION WITH A FUTURE

It guarantees extensive experience, evolved structures and continuous development, which, in turn, gives our staff and customers the security of knowing that they can rely on a professional company which thinks in the long-term.
The roots of the company go back to 1928, when Karl Depenbrock founded a haulage firm with "a horse and cart". Today over 700 staff at seven locations in Germany, Poland and Romania produce outstanding work in all areas of construction. From civil engineering and road building, complex turnkey construction right through to facilities management, Depenbrock Bau can construct and run your project.
