The ACO Group is a world market leader in drainage technology. Climate change sets us a challenge to react effectively with innovative solutions to new environmental conditions. With its integrated approach, ACO stands for professional drainage, efficient cleaning, and the controlled discharge or reuse of water. Products include drainage channels and drains, oil and grease separators, backflow stop systems, pumps and pressure-water-tight cellar windows and light shafts. The family-owned company headquartered in Rendsburg/Büdelsdorf, Germany, was founded in 1946 on the site of the Carlshütte foundry – Schleswig-Holstein’s first industrial company. It still has very strong roots in the region. The innovation strength of the ACO Group is built on intense research and development, and its technical expertise in processing polymer concrete, plastic, cast iron, stainless steel and reinforced concrete. ACO has a presence in over 40 countries, with a total of 30 production sites on four continents. With a global workforce of 5,000, the company generated sales of Euro 850 million in 2018.
We manufacture our systems by processing polymer concrete, stainless steel, plastic, cast iron and reinforced concrete. Because we make our products in environmentally-compatible processes, and use them creatively, ACO products satisfy up-and-coming demands for technical innovation, economical application, and sustainable construction.
Another factor behind ACO’s strength: we consider communication to be a crucial success parameter. With intense knowledge management, we harness the opportunities for linking up creativity, know-how and experience worldwide, and share this expertise with clients and partners.
