Top10 German EMS providers

Accounting for 13.6 percent of European EMS revenues and 34.7 percent of those generated in Western Europe Germany is, and will, continue to play a key role in the development of the European EMS industry.

The industry is served by a large number of companies although the majority are small to medium-sized with revenues below EUR 10 million and for many revenues are below EUR 5 million. As with other countries in Western Europe domestic players dominate the market with Zollner, Europe’s largest indigenous EMS provider, the clear industry leader with 13 percent share of revenues.
