Our employees at 160 sites on five continents are passionate about working for the company. That is what makes us successful internationally.
As part of the Umdasch Group, we at Doka aim to not only be economically successful, but also fulfill our ecological and social responsibilities as well as our responsibility as an employer. Therefore, we regularly set impulses within and outside our company and drive international initiatives that make our common working and living environment more sustainable.
Improvements depend on honest feedback. This is why the Umdasch Group introduced a global engagement survey so that all employees have an opportunity to make their views known.
The Umdasch Group has set itself the goal of linking knowledge, business and values and thus fulfilling the responsibility that both the Umdasch Group and its companies have to society.
Sports not only have an immense impact on your health, they also have a positive effect on well-being. Doka Saudi Arabia has acknowledged this and launched a three-month fitness challenge.

NEULANDT’s portable precast plant N3P is on its first mission to Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. N3P allows for the industrial production of precast elements directly on the construction site. This creates added value at a local level and high process efficiency. The results are sustainable, affordable living spaces, as well as a better social infrastructure.
The cutting-edge powder-coating system has been in operation near the Amstetten headquarters since 2021. What can such a system achieve? Every single step of production can be optimised for sustainability, using the latest robot technology, digitalisation, automation and state-of-the-art technology. It protects the environment and people.
Seven Doka employees completed the Climate Ranger Academy to develop their knowledge on climate protection and mainstream this knowledge within Doka's business environment. This is because transformation will only be successful if sustainability is reflected in the strategy, the business’s own core processes and in its everyday processes.
What is the idea behind the Umdasch Group’s Sustainability Prize? It is to promote projects that work towards a sustainability strategy and these projects are within the company itself. What started in 2020 is now an annual event. Employees are very enthusiastic and motivated.
Over 10,000 sq.m. of solar panels will have been installed on the roofs of buildings in Amstetten, St. Georgen and St. Martin by the end of 2023. Thus around 9% of electricity required each year at the Amstetten site can be covered with solar power.
Doka’s transport logistics in Amstetten are attracting attention with their strong, sustainable focus on expanding intermodal traffic. Consignments are transported in combination with railways. More and more Doka countries are joining.
Doka Sweden’s trucks are producing 80–90% fewer greenhouse gases by using a different sort of green fuel. HVO100 fuel is leading the way in the sustainability stakes, as it is primarily made of waste fats such as cooling oils or animal fat.
From the procurement of raw material and production through to delivery to distribution centres and branches worldwide, use on construction sites, repair and cleaning and, finally, the recovery and recycling phase of the product. Almost 6,000 products have been examined right down to the last detail. Or, to be more accurate, to calculate their carbon footprint.
You need to know the amount, if you are going to reduce it. Doka sets a good example and actively provides transparent reports on the Corporate Carbon Footprint, company-wide reduction targets and measures to consistently reduce emissions. Furthermore, it also explains why the carbon footprint has the potential to be a new currency.
Doka Amstetten is achieving in practice what was earlier thought to be unimaginable. There was great enthusiasm as they discovered and appreciated the advantages of paperless manufacturing. If an appropriate device is used, digitalisation brings very important advantages, especially in production. Everything is right up to date – with just a couple of clicks.
Three months’ work experience in the USA changed her life. For the Hungarian Yard Manager, too, Doka was the gateway to the world. A third was in the Ivory Coast for his project.
Satisfied employees offer tremendous potential! Doka does its bit to create happy families with Umdasch Nest. At our Amstetten site the little ones are well looked after in our company’s own crèche, including in the years before they are old enough for the kindergarten.
