E/D/E construction equipment

The core functions of the sector of construction equipment are purchasing, product management and distribution.

As specialists, the employees are the contacts for members and suppliers. Through permanent dialogue on all levels, we always have the relevant information about the current ranges. This exchange of information is ensured by intense cooperation of competence groups and boards, but also by a well functioning network of suppliers.

We are responsible for the sectors of:


  • Building site equipment, clearance- and warning-devices, formwork
  • Measuring equipment
  • Construction equipment, mechanical carpentry and accessories
  • Hand tools
  • Elevators, lifting equipment, transport equipment
  • Machines and devices for civil engineering

Trading volume (in million Euros): 


  • 2019: 174
  • 2020: 181


The light equipment segment again exceeded its ambitious trading volume target in 2020. At 181 million euros, revenue exceeded the previous year's good result by 4.23 percent. Despite the continuing good economic situation in the construction environment, the entire industry is facing challenges such as digitalisation, logistics networking and purchasing optimisation in the context of increasing price transparency. The bundling of purchasing potential was the focus of the founding of MAB Mittelstands-Allianz Baugeräte GmbH, a joint venture between E/D/E and EVB BauPunkt. Suppliers:

  • The construction equipment professionals

    The new sales- and marketing-concept „Die Baugeräte-Profis“ (“The construction equipment professionals”) was launched in January 2015 and offers the 13 partaking members from the specialist group construction equipment diverse benefits in their market.
    The goal is to create new sales-impulses under the roof of a new, strong brand, which are accompanied by professional marketing activities. Bundling effects are also meant to secure advantages in purchasing. This includes for instance Profi Sale-events with attractive flyers for sales promotion. Additionally, there are classic promo-items in a new and unified look: from the lighter via ball point pens ranging to carpenter’s pens and measuring devices. More promotion items will follow successively.
    The unified appearance of the group is linked to a high measure of liability. The use for distributors is clear – better work on and in markets, leaner processes, increased group dynamics and increased perception from customers and suppliers.
    This approach works in close coordination with the special suppliers of the “Baugeräte-Profis”, who work especially close with the group.
