The ZVEI is one of the most important industrial associations in Germany. It represents the interests of a high-tech sector with a very wide and extremely dynamic product portfolio.
The ZVEI is committed to the common interests of the electrical industry in Germany and at the international level. This commitment is supported by the involvement of around 160 employees in the main office and about 5,000 employees of the member companies in an honorary capacity.
The basis of the association's work is the exchange of experience and views between the members about current technical, economic, legal and socio-political topics in the field of the electrical industry. From this exchange, common positions are drawn up. With proposals on research, technology, environmental protection, education, and science policy, the ZVEI is a pacemaker of technological progress. It supports market-related international standardisation work.
