Siemens’ characteristics

Shaping the future

Siemens has played an impressive role over the past 170 years in shaping the technological evolution of Germany, Europe and the whole world.

Playing an active role in shaping the future has always been a major goal of every head of the company, from Werner von Siemens to Joe Kaeser. That ambition has turned the 10-man operation at Schöneberger Strasse 19 in Berlin into a great international corporation.


How does Siemens differ from so many other companies?
