Ferdinand Doppstadt has reorganised his family-owned group of companies under the umbrella of the newly established “Langenberger Innovation Group” (LIG GmbH), and renamed Doppstadt Familienholding GmbH to LIG at the same time.
LIG is still fully owned by Ferdinand Doppstadt and has its registered headquarters close to the Langenberg district of Velbert, where the founding family Doppstadt has lived for decades.
According to Doppstadt, LIG combines all capabilities and areas of expertise of the group companies with a clear focus on conserving resources. The clearly defined objectives of the new organization are to be “Best in Class” in its industry and to further expand through acquisitions.
The brands belonging to the Group with separate business areas shall act independently in the future and will develop independently of one another.

By establishing the “Langenberger Innovation Group”, Ferdinand Doppstadt said that he plans to further increase his commitment and the further development of the corporate group on the basis of the “Acting sustainably – Creating values” principle.
The Group currently has 750 employees and generates sales of approx. EUR 200 million.
