The following industries are covered by the list of the largest companies in Berlin
The Berlin economy: Statistics and facts
Berlin is characterized by its function as a capital city, but has also been a strong business location at least since the industrialization of the 19th century. Only with the factories did Spree-Athens become a metropolis of millions. Berlin’s economy has always operated in a political environment characterized by major upheavals. With a gross domestic product of a good 153 billion euros (2019), the capital today ranks sixth among the German states, both in absolute terms and per capita.
In 2018, there were a total of around 185,000 legally independent commercial enterprises in Berlin, plus around 192,000 branches of companies based outside the capital. In recent decades there has been a major shift in emphasis away from industrial production towards the service sector. Almost 5,400 companies are active in manufacturing, 14,600 in construction and about 164,500 in the service sector. Around 85 percent of the Berlin economy’s turnover is generated by services. Tourism is of great importance. The capital is one of the hippest city destinations in Europe with millions of visitors every year. This benefits the hotel and restaurant industry, but also the retail sector.
Strong economic sectors in Berlin are the media and creative industries, trade fairs and congresses (including the International Consumer Electronics Fair, Berlinale, International Green Week, ITB Berlin), biotechnology and health care, optics (especially in the Berlin-Adlershof Technology Park) and transport systems technology. After the turn of the millennium, Berlin has become the leading center for Internet start-ups in Germany. The Berlin-based company Rocket Internet has made a significant contribution to this development as an “incubator” for many start-ups.
Major companies have their headquarters or secondary headquarters in the capital. These include Deutsche Bahn, Siemens, Zalando, Dussmann, Axel Springer and Vattenfall.

The most important questions about our list of the largest mechanical enigneering companies Germany
The companies included in the list can be found through various sources: Internet research, public registers, analysis of relevant news, investigation of relevant transactions, our extensive personal network. Hundreds of hours of detailed, high-quality research flow into each of our lists. All data points that we can enter via publicly available sources are included in our lists.
Every data point for which there is publicly available information is filled out in our lists. However, if we do not have an e-mail address or we do not know whether a company is investing in a particular area, we fill this field with an “n.a.”. In most cases we achieve a data coverage of over 90%. If you want to know the exact coverage of the list – e.g. how many e-mail addresses are available – our team will be happy to help you.
Our lists are always delivered as handy Excel files. On request we can also send you the list as a CSV file.
After purchasing the list, you can immediately download the list as an Excel file when paying by credit card or PayPal. You will also receive a download link by e-mail. Future free updates will also be sent to you by e-mail. If you pay in advance, you will receive the list after the amount has been credited to our account or you have sent us a bank transfer receipt.
We have noted the last update date in the product description at the top of the page. We update our lists regularly. Our customers receive free updates and additions to the list for at least 12 months.
Our lists contain – if publicly available – address, telephone number, e-mail addresses and management names of the listed companies. For privacy reasons, we may only include information that is publicly available or provided by the companies. If no data points are available, there is an “n.a.” in the corresponding field.
Due to the DSGVO our lists do not contain personal e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Our lists contain publicly available contact data or contact data provided by the companies (e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, names of directors).
Our lists do not contain any personal contact data that is specifically protected by the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our lists always contain publicly accessible data points (official registers such as the Commercial Register or the Federal Gazette, Internet, company websites) or data provided voluntarily by companies and are therefore harmless.
In Germany, contact is regulated by §7 UWG. Thus, postal advertising in the B2B sector is generally permitted. Contacting by telephone is permitted if the business contact is presumably interested. This can also be accepted for e-mail contact, as long as the contact is made once and the contact is not included in newsletters without being asked.
Important note: We are not lawyers and cannot make legally binding statements. If you have any open questions, please feel free to contact us.
The companies included in the lists can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, postal letter, e-mail, networks such as LinkedIn, jointly attended trade fairs. In order to establish successful contacts, it is particularly important to work on individualized addresses tailored to the respective companies. Mass letters are rarely successful. Instead, our customers are most successful when they adapt to the companies included in our lists, obtain information and then address them in a customized manner. Another successful approach is to contact them via LinkedIn, for example, by selecting the right contact person from our list and then addressing them via a consistent starting point. Intros” that are mediated via shared contacts are also a good step towards establishing contact. Also possible: at trade fairs visited together, you can use the trade fair lists to search specifically for companies included in the lists and make appointments for meetings.
In general: the more effort is put into the individual approach, the more successful it is. Think about what suitable starting points are, how you can deliver added value and show the addressed companies that you put a lot of effort into the contact. Many of our customers have already built up valuable and successful business relationships.
