Building services

The Building Services-section generated an overall trading volume of €1.4 billion in 2019. For over 45 years, the E/D/E business division with its sanitary and heating wholesalers in the WUPPER-RING has been the indispensable link between manufacturers and wholesalers. Within the E/D/E, the Building Services-division undertakes central tasks, such as central regulation, negotiation of conditions and the grouping of material requirements, for its member companies and suppliers.


To strengthen the market position of our member companies, we invest a lot of energy in the development and execution of collective marketing measures. With our premium umbrella brand-concept "Bäder sehen.planen.kaufen", with the reworked quality offensive for bathroom exhibtions PROMIS 2.0, or with our premium-concept "HANDELS-MARK", our members can connect even more intensively with their customers.

Profitable trade brands, specific support measures for high-quality branded products and intensive collaboration with selected manufacturers for procurement and distribution guarantee our members a strong position in their regional markets.

We also guarantee our partners in the manufacturing industry the same reliable distribution channel and good market penetration for their products.

With our reliable and extensive data service, manufacturers’ price lists can be called up quickly and easily at the click of a mouse all the individual purchase prices can be calculated. Since 2013, our division also takes care of its own data-management building services - by trade specialists for trade specialists. It goes without saying that our information is designed in such a way that it is available in an up-to-date format for every member both for their inventory management system and shop solution.
