The TAKKT Group specializes in B2B distance selling for business equipment. Sales are carried out mainly via e-commerce, and customers are also addressed through print marketing and key account managers. The divisions and brands operate in attractive markets and focus primarily on selling to corporate customers in various industries and regions, with the goods involved typically being durable and less price-sensitive equipment as well as special items that are needed on a regular basis. The product ranges that are offered mostly encompass durables that companies use for their business activities. The TAKKT companies supply products such as pallet lifting trucks to German automobile suppliers, computer cabinets to Swiss mechanical engineering companies, custom-printed advertising banners for trade shows, shipping cartons to European industrial companies and food service equipment to commercial kitchens in the US.
Since the beginning of 2022, the Group addresses the market with the following three divisions:
Supporting Group functions such as logistics, IT, finance and HR are coordinated and managed at the TAKKT AG level.
Each division has a focused product portfolio that is primarily geared to a specific work environment. In I&P, the work environment is the factory floor or warehouse in the manufacturing and logistics industries. OF&D specializes in products for service providers. This includes equipment for working at the office or from home. The FS area offers products required for meal and food preparation and presentation in hotels, restaurants and catering establishments. The aim of the organizational alignment along product categories and worlds of work is to fully realize the sales potential. The work of the divisions will focus on market and customer-related functions such as sales, marketing, e-commerce and category management. These tasks are being increasingly coordinated and consolidated within the divisions across the individual sales brands. This enables better use of internal resources and skills, such as through the expansion of cross-selling and in the ongoing improvement and new development of future-oriented products and services for the respective world of work.
