Leading the Non-Food Sector
With a business volume of more than 14,5 billion euros, the cooperative group of companies is one of the largest European trade cooperations. More than 5,000 independent companies in the footwear, sports and leather goods industry with almost 10,000 sales outlets as well as numerous medium-sized groups benefit from the advantages of the network.
Since 1990 the special bank has been the partner to small and medium-sized enterprises for purchase and sales financing for over 18,000 costumers. More than 8,700 association members and 9,500 suppliers in 46 associations in over 16 sectors (e.g. car spare parts, building materials, wood, furniture, sanitary & electrical materials and coatings) use the extensive central settlement and factoring offer from AKTIVBANK.
With almost 60 member institutions – such as financing specialists for consumption, investments and motor vehicles - the association bundles the know-how of the industry and takes a stand on legislation, jurisdiction, administration and economy. It actively represents its interests towards politics, banking supervision, consumer protection and the public in general.
The impulse format HandelnDenken (ThinkingRetail) initiated by DZB Bank brings together managers of cooperative trading organisations for a creative exchange of ideas. What started as an experiment in 2009 has established itself as a constructive platform for discussing the future challenges and opportunities of cooperative retail.
