DEKRA vision

We will be the global partner for a safe world

Bridge in sunset

DEKRA has been ensuring safety since it was founded in 1925. This basic need of people is met by our workforce of more than 45,000 people in over 60 countries on all continents with extensive expertise, wide-ranging services and passionate commitment.

In 2015 – the year of our 90th birthday – we stood at the dawn of a new era in our company’s history. We have oriented the statutory mission of our founding fathers for the next ten years in the context of strategic courses. On the road, at work and at home – DEKRA’s skilled experts create increased safety across all the key areas of life. By our 100th birthday, our vision of being “a global partner for a safe world” should become reality.
