AREAS OF EXPERTISE

12 departments - 
one mission

BLANC & FISCHER CORPORATE SERVICES brings togeth­er dif­fer­ent skill sets. Our 12 depart­ments share one objec­tive: to sup­port the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing with cen­tral func­tions so that they can con­cen­trate on their actu­al tasks.

Success
through diversity

In our com­pa­nies, many dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ty types con­nect, exchange ideas, and work togeth­er to ensure the suc­cess of the entire Group. 

“All of our depart­ments are ser­vice dri­ven. Every­one con­tributes their spe­cial know-how and works close­ly togeth­er for speedy imple­men­ta­tions or prob­lem solv­ing. I real­ly appre­ci­ate the short com­mu­ni­ca­tion paths and personal contacts.”

Daniel Heck­er, Blanc & Fis­ch­er IT Services

What we do

Corporate Business Development

Together towards the future

Where is the jour­ney of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing or one of the sub­groups head­ing to? Our Corporate Busi­ness Devel­op­ment depart­ment takes a look into the future. They are strate­gists, vision­ar­ies, and doers in one. Their mis­sion: always be on the cut­ting edge of new prod­ucts, observe and rec­og­nize trends, have solu­tions ready before the prob­lem is even evi­dent, ana­lyze mar­kets, and check how these can be devel­oped by a sub­group or collaboratively.

Vir­tu­al­ly unlim­it­ed cre­ative free­dom, Group-wide and cross-depart­men­tal think­ing – all this is pos­si­ble in our Corporate Busi­ness Devel­op­ment depart­ment. Cre­ative minds who chal­lenge and scru­ti­nize the sta­tus quo, break new ground, and bring for­ward inno­v­a­tive ideas such as the Future Kitchen Lab. The result: new busi­ness mod­els that ben­e­fit, grow, and cre­ate syn­er­gies for all subgroups.

Challenge accepted

Num­bers aren’t dry, on the con­trary! Espe­cial­ly when new key fig­ures need to be deter­mined or new legal reg­u­la­tions imple­ment­ed. Our Corporate Finance and Con­trol­ling divi­sion is guid­ed by two prin­ci­ples: First­ly, the team mem­bers pro­mote and demand cus­tomer-ori­ent­ed, prag­mat­ic work­ing meth­ods as well as fixed, process-dri­ven struc­tures. Sec­ond­ly, their focus is on inde­pen­dent work­ing and a huge amount of curios­i­ty and flex­i­bil­i­ty in order to be able to respond to the many issues and changes. 

Corporate Global Processes

Keeping us all safe

From envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and effi­cient work­ing meth­ods through to occu­pa­tion­al safe­ty: our col­leagues in the Corporate Glob­al Process­es divi­sion are com­pe­tent points of con­tact for process man­age­ment, ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, as well as occu­pa­tion­al safe­ty and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. And all the while, they keep the social, eco­log­i­cal, and eco­nom­ic aspects in mind, which are so impor­tant for the sus­tain­able devel­op­ment of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing subgroups.

Corporate Human Resources

Finding the right puzzle pieces

Corporate Human Resources has clear­ly defined respon­si­bil­i­ties. The employ­ees of all BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing com­pa­nies are sup­port­ed and looked after with great care through­out their work­ing lives. Our depart­ment advis­es employ­ees and man­agers on oper­a­tional, strate­gic, orga­ni­za­tion­al, labor law and, of course, inter­per­son­al issues. But the department’s field of activ­i­ty extends beyond employ­ee sup­port and reten­tion and also includes the acqui­si­tion of new tal­ent. With cre­ative mea­sures and always-open com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels, we con­tribute to the last­ing suc­cess of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing companies.

Unleashing potential

Get fit for the job, and stay fit too? No prob­lem! Our many pro­grams and cus­tom train­ing activ­i­ties give our employ­ees qual­i­fi­ca­tions and help them devel­op the nec­es­sary skills. With an estab­lished and struc­tured pro­gram of activ­i­ties for employ­ees, our Corporate Human Resources divi­sion is lay­ing the foun­da­tion for the future growth of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing subgroups. 

Corporate Risk & Insurance Management

A stable foundation

With oppor­tu­ni­ty comes risk, right? Well, it’s not quite that clear-cut, but one thing is cer­tain: the art lies in rec­og­niz­ing and con­trol­ling risks at an ear­ly stage. Our Corporate Risk and Insur­ance Man­age­ment experts rely on a sta­ble strate­gic foun­da­tion when deal­ing with risks. They assess the risk for a wide range of process­es in the com­pa­ny – always with the set objec­tives in mind. Our depart­ment spe­cial­izes in help­ing to iden­ti­fy, assess, and man­age risks and thus pro­vid­ing the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing with the con­fi­dence of mak­ing the right deci­sions for the future, includ­ing con­sid­er­a­tion of lia­bil­i­ty law.

Experts with an eye on the big picture

Corporate gov­er­nance refers to any rules, pro­ce­dures, or laws under which a com­pa­ny is man­aged or oper­at­ed. These may be bind­ing in the form of laws or stan­dards, or may be imposed by the com­pa­ny itself in order to guar­an­tee a stan­dard to stake­hold­ers. Our col­leagues from Corporate Risk and Insur­ance Man­age­ment serve as both con­sul­tants and audi­tors, always keep­ing an eye on inter­nal and exter­nal frame­work con­di­tions. In this way, they make an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to qual­i­ty and thus also to the sta­ble and sus­tain­able corporate growth of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Holding. 

Corporate Lean Enterprise

More efficient and streamlined

Lean process­es increase effi­cien­cy, prof­itabil­i­ty, and com­pet­i­tive­ness of a com­pa­ny, which means they also secure jobs. Our Corporate Lean Enter­prise divi­sion devel­ops Group-wide stan­dard­ized pro­ce­dures for such lean man­age­ment, such as con­tin­u­ous process opti­miza­tion in pro­duc­tion in the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing sub­groups. Corporate Lean Enter­prise not only helps employ­ees to work effi­cient­ly, but also to save valu­able resources. Col­leagues reg­u­lar­ly exchange ideas with each other and around the globe.

Giving impetus

Draw­ing on var­i­ous lean meth­ods and pro­ce­dures, our depart­ment pur­sues one goal: to stan­dard­ize process­es and to cre­ate a func­tion­ing, over­ar­ch­ing orga­ni­za­tion­al sys­tem with­out waste. One cen­tral task here is to active­ly involve employ­ees in all sub­groups in these process­es and to com­mu­ni­cate the advantages. 

Corporate Legal & Compliance

Legal security on the go

Do we always go by the book? Of course, that’s why there are rules and laws after all! But to do that, they must first be under­stood. Our Corporate Legal and Com­pli­ance team is always on hand to pro­vide advice and assis­tance to the sub­groups. Adher­ence to legal require­ments and com­pli­ance reg­u­la­tions are cru­cial for the suc­cess of all com­pa­nies of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing. By the way, our patent depart­ment also makes sure that any ideas and inno­va­tions of col­leagues from the sub­groups remain their property.

Many projects ini­ti­at­ed by the legal depart­ment have to be coor­di­nat­ed across disciplines—a tru­ly var­ied and at the same time chal­leng­ing activity.

Corporate Purchasing

More than procurement

Our Corporate Pur­chas­ing depart­ment not only takes care of the pro­cure­ment of goods and ser­vices, but also han­dles strate­gic pur­chas­ing for the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing, con­trols the costs and qual­i­ty of the mate­ri­als, and iden­ti­fies suit­able sup­pli­ers whose approach is par­tic­u­lar­ly sus­tain­able, for exam­ple. Pur­chas­ing, in par­tic­u­lar, makes an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to sus­tain­abil­i­ty by ensur­ing a trans­par­ent and sus­tain­able sup­ply chain. Our col­leagues reg­u­lar­ly mon­i­tor the mar­kets and attach great impor­tance to main­tain­ing con­tacts at home and abroad. They also deal with the expan­sion of sup­pli­er man­age­ment, cost opti­miza­tion, and min­i­miza­tion of risks.

Corporate Tax

Taxes, taxes, taxes

Between pay­roll account­ing and annu­al finan­cial state­ments, between con­sult­ing time and fur­ther train­ing, tax­es are an excit­ing part of the every­day work­ing day in the Corporate Tax depart­ment. Com­pe­tence in tax mat­ters is par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant for the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing. This starts with ensur­ing domes­tic and inter­na­tion­al tax oblig­a­tions are met, includes tax con­sul­ta­tions for Merg­ers & Acqui­si­tions, and extends to sup­port­ing com­pa­ny audits by the tax authorities.

Getting the most out of it

It’s impor­tant to always find the right solu­tion. Our Corporate Tax employ­ees pro­vide their col­leagues from the sub­groups with com­pe­tent, reli­able, and ser­vice-dri­ven sup­port as part of their day-to-day deal­ings with tax­es. They always keep an eye on the big pic­ture. As a result, tax issues can always be viewed from dif­fer­ent angles and the best indi­vid­ual solu­tion can be devel­oped for every challenge. 

Corporate Treasury

Staying liquid

Our Corporate Trea­sury man­ages finan­cial resources. Sim­ply put, it’s all about mon­ey. Top­ics such as liq­uid­i­ty and cash man­age­ment, cur­ren­cy and com­mod­i­ty hedges, inter­est rate risk man­age­ment, bud­get price deter­mi­na­tions, and main­tain­ing bank­ing rela­tion­ships are part of every­day life for our experts. They pro­vide advice and sup­port sophis­ti­cat­ed trea­sury con­cepts and suit­able tech­nolo­gies with­out los­ing sight of the con­sis­tent imple­men­ta­tion of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing corporate strat­e­gy.

Challenge accepted

Num­bers aren’t dry, on the con­trary! Espe­cial­ly when new key fig­ures need to be deter­mined or new legal reg­u­la­tions imple­ment­ed. Our Corporate Finance and Con­trol­ling divi­sion is guid­ed by two prin­ci­ples: First­ly, the team mem­bers pro­mote and demand cus­tomer-ori­ent­ed, prag­mat­ic work­ing meth­ods as well as fixed, process-dri­ven struc­tures. Sec­ond­ly, their focus is on inde­pen­dent work­ing and a huge amount of curios­i­ty and flex­i­bil­i­ty in order to be able to respond to the many issues and changes. 

Corporate Global Processes

Keeping us all safe

From envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and effi­cient work­ing meth­ods through to occu­pa­tion­al safe­ty: our col­leagues in the Corporate Glob­al Process­es divi­sion are com­pe­tent points of con­tact for process man­age­ment, ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, as well as occu­pa­tion­al safe­ty and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. And all the while, they keep the social, eco­log­i­cal, and eco­nom­ic aspects in mind, which are so impor­tant for the sus­tain­able devel­op­ment of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing subgroups.

Corporate Human Resources

Finding the right puzzle pieces

Corporate Human Resources has clear­ly defined respon­si­bil­i­ties. The employ­ees of all BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing com­pa­nies are sup­port­ed and looked after with great care through­out their work­ing lives. Our depart­ment advis­es employ­ees and man­agers on oper­a­tional, strate­gic, orga­ni­za­tion­al, labor law and, of course, inter­per­son­al issues. But the department’s field of activ­i­ty extends beyond employ­ee sup­port and reten­tion and also includes the acqui­si­tion of new tal­ent. With cre­ative mea­sures and always-open com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels, we con­tribute to the last­ing suc­cess of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing companies.

Corporate Risk & Insurance Management

A stable foundation

With oppor­tu­ni­ty comes risk, right? Well, it’s not quite that clear-cut, but one thing is cer­tain: the art lies in rec­og­niz­ing and con­trol­ling risks at an ear­ly stage. Our Corporate Risk and Insur­ance Man­age­ment experts rely on a sta­ble strate­gic foun­da­tion when deal­ing with risks. They assess the risk for a wide range of process­es in the com­pa­ny – always with the set objec­tives in mind. Our depart­ment spe­cial­izes in help­ing to iden­ti­fy, assess, and man­age risks and thus pro­vid­ing the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing with the con­fi­dence of mak­ing the right deci­sions for the future, includ­ing con­sid­er­a­tion of lia­bil­i­ty law.

Experts with an eye on the big picture

Corporate gov­er­nance refers to any rules, pro­ce­dures, or laws under which a com­pa­ny is man­aged or oper­at­ed. These may be bind­ing in the form of laws or stan­dards, or may be imposed by the com­pa­ny itself in order to guar­an­tee a stan­dard to stake­hold­ers. Our col­leagues from Corporate Risk and Insur­ance Man­age­ment serve as both con­sul­tants and audi­tors, always keep­ing an eye on inter­nal and exter­nal frame­work con­di­tions. In this way, they make an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to qual­i­ty and thus also to the sta­ble and sus­tain­able corporate growth of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Holding. 

Corporate Lean Enterprise

More efficient and streamlined

Lean process­es increase effi­cien­cy, prof­itabil­i­ty, and com­pet­i­tive­ness of a com­pa­ny, which means they also secure jobs. Our Corporate Lean Enter­prise divi­sion devel­ops Group-wide stan­dard­ized pro­ce­dures for such lean man­age­ment, such as con­tin­u­ous process opti­miza­tion in pro­duc­tion in the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing sub­groups. Corporate Lean Enter­prise not only helps employ­ees to work effi­cient­ly, but also to save valu­able resources. Col­leagues reg­u­lar­ly exchange ideas with each other and around the globe.

Giving impetus

Draw­ing on var­i­ous lean meth­ods and pro­ce­dures, our depart­ment pur­sues one goal: to stan­dard­ize process­es and to cre­ate a func­tion­ing, over­ar­ch­ing orga­ni­za­tion­al sys­tem with­out waste. One cen­tral task here is to active­ly involve employ­ees in all sub­groups in these process­es and to com­mu­ni­cate the advantages. 

Corporate Purchasing

More than procurement

Our Corporate Pur­chas­ing depart­ment not only takes care of the pro­cure­ment of goods and ser­vices, but also han­dles strate­gic pur­chas­ing for the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing, con­trols the costs and qual­i­ty of the mate­ri­als, and iden­ti­fies suit­able sup­pli­ers whose approach is par­tic­u­lar­ly sus­tain­able, for exam­ple. Pur­chas­ing, in par­tic­u­lar, makes an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to sus­tain­abil­i­ty by ensur­ing a trans­par­ent and sus­tain­able sup­ply chain. Our col­leagues reg­u­lar­ly mon­i­tor the mar­kets and attach great impor­tance to main­tain­ing con­tacts at home and abroad. They also deal with the expan­sion of sup­pli­er man­age­ment, cost opti­miza­tion, and min­i­miza­tion of risks.

Corporate Tax

Taxes, taxes, taxes

Between pay­roll account­ing and annu­al finan­cial state­ments, between con­sult­ing time and fur­ther train­ing, tax­es are an excit­ing part of the every­day work­ing day in the Corporate Tax depart­ment. Com­pe­tence in tax mat­ters is par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant for the sub­groups of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing. This starts with ensur­ing domes­tic and inter­na­tion­al tax oblig­a­tions are met, includes tax con­sul­ta­tions for Merg­ers & Acqui­si­tions, and extends to sup­port­ing com­pa­ny audits by the tax authorities.

Getting the most out of it

It’s impor­tant to always find the right solu­tion. Our Corporate Tax employ­ees pro­vide their col­leagues from the sub­groups with com­pe­tent, reli­able, and ser­vice-dri­ven sup­port as part of their day-to-day deal­ings with tax­es. They always keep an eye on the big pic­ture. As a result, tax issues can always be viewed from dif­fer­ent angles and the best indi­vid­ual solu­tion can be devel­oped for every challenge. 

Corporate Treasury

Staying liquid

Our Corporate Trea­sury man­ages finan­cial resources. Sim­ply put, it’s all about mon­ey. Top­ics such as liq­uid­i­ty and cash man­age­ment, cur­ren­cy and com­mod­i­ty hedges, inter­est rate risk man­age­ment, bud­get price deter­mi­na­tions, and main­tain­ing bank­ing rela­tion­ships are part of every­day life for our experts. They pro­vide advice and sup­port sophis­ti­cat­ed trea­sury con­cepts and suit­able tech­nolo­gies with­out los­ing sight of the con­sis­tent imple­men­ta­tion of the BLANC & FISCHER Fam­i­ly Hold­ing corporate strat­e­gy.
