Deutsche Bauchemie has now been the top association among the manufacturers of construction-chemical products for 68 years. It forms a national and European-level interface between its member companies and politics, authorities, construction industry, standardisation institutes and research and teaching.

Deutsche Bauchemie is an organisation made up of about 130 national and European companies. With an annual turnover of about 7.9 billion euros, these companies achieved half of the European market volume and about one third of the global market.

The range of member companies of Deutsche Bauchemie reaches from small and medium-sized specialty suppliers to global players operating worldwide. All members of the association are standing for top-class products and a willingness to provide great services to the entire construction industry.

The work is done by 40 committees, working and project groups with 350 experts from member companies and by the team of the association secretariat with General Director Dipl.-Ing. Norbert Schroeter.

Additionally, DBC has established 4 special funds as of:

  • Research and public relation
  • Special projects
  • Endowed professorship for construction products and chemicals at Technical University Berlin
  • Promotion of other European Associations

Admixture related activities focus on:

  • Concrete technology
  • Concrete and mortar admixtures

A further important activity of DBC is quality assurance through the Qualitätsgemeinschaft Deutsche Bauchemie (www.QDB.de – notified body for CE marking).

DBC and its membership do not only see themselves as an industry association they are first and foremost a community who is aware of its social, economic and ecological responsibilities and acts accordingly. Another cornerstone in the work of DBC is the pursuit of free competition within a market economic order.
