About us

We match. You grow.

Throughout the world, we are committed to providing companies with a secure platform as they expand abroad. The German Centres are multi-functional office buildings that provide space and facilities for a wide range of companies to set up and develop their overseas operations, present their products and services, meet their customers and hold conferences, training sessions and events. Together with the German Centre team, institutions such as AHKs, associations and service providers, an ecosystem is created in which companies find everything they need to grow.

Values

What German Centres Worldwide stands for

We rent offices and do a lot more

We are landlords, but that means much more to us than a signed lease. We also see ourselves as companions, using our know-how, our networks and our creativity to help you position yourself in the best possible way in the German Centre and in your target market. When our clients are happy, we are happy.

We focus on long-term partnerships

Start small, grow and breathe – this is possible with us at the German Centres. You are part of the German Centre community. You benefit from the information, networks and developments in the German Centre. Even if you do not have an office (yet) or no longer have an office with us,  stay connected with us and the region.

We are passionate about what you do

We are in daily contact with the people in our German Centres. We are in touch with the issues that are currently on their minds and the challenges they are facing. We look at the latest trends in the many different sectors and develop small and big ideas together. We are happy when we can make a contribution to their success.

The story behind it

Creating something new together

1990

Asia-Pacific Conferences of German Business

The dialogue on economic developments in Southeast Asia at the Asia-Pacific Conferences in the 1990s included the question of how to make it easier for German companies to gain a foothold in difficult but exciting markets. With great foresight and vision, companies from Baden-Württemberg, in particular Prof. Berthold Leibinger, managing partner of Trumpf GmbH&Co. KG, developed the concept of German Centres in cooperation with Baden-Württemberg’s politicians and SüdwestLB, a predecessor institution of today’s LBBW.

1993

Foundation of the German Centre for Industry and Trade GmbH

The starting signal for the realisation of the German Centres was the foundation of the German Centre for Industry and Trade GmbH headquartered in Stuttgart.
