Ulrich Hoffmann

Managing Director DEHA

DEHA is itself a cooperation of 5 independent electrical wholesalers in Germany. As such, we recognized as early as 1973 how important it is to buy together to be able to keep up with the larger market competitors. In IDEE we extend this principle to the European level. In this way, we as DEHA, but also every other IDEE shareholder, can improve our competitiveness with the common purchasing approach. Joint marketing initiatives enable us to be one step faster than the market. The saying “Think global, act local” is lived to perfection at IDEE.

Our supplier network Get access to 
our supplier network. And offer the best.

IDEE sets high standards for our suppliers. The reliable supply of future-oriented, high-quality products is only one criterion for us. We also attach importance to social and ecological standards and value a fair, open partnership. Because our members should always receive the best products and solutions.

Look for good company. And get involved.

At IDEE, we don't just purchase jointly. Above all, we exchange ideas and learn from each other. That is why we take special care in the selection of our members and avoid competition between them.
