Als unabhängiger Partner für Bundeswehr und Industrie ermöglicht die ESG eine optimale Lösung für jede Anforderung.


Maximum operational readiness while optimising costs

Availability and cost efficiency are decisive factors in the lifecycle of complex durable systems. As an independent partner for the armed forces and industry, we provide the optimum solution from the development phase to operation and phasing out.

360 degree optimisation

With holistic services, we support our customers throughout the entire system lifecycle. As early as the analysis phase, we carry out studies and advise on the logistic requirements for the design, implementation and use of systems. We support system implementations and procurement with a broad portfolio of technical-logistic services from documentation to occupational safety and environmental protection to obsolescence management. In order to maintain and increase operational readiness in the in-service phase, we, as experienced experts, provide development and technical-logistic support for a wide range of systems and platforms. We also support you in the event of a system replacement or in the decommissioning and disposal phase.

Mit ganzheitlicher Betreuung unterstützt die ESG ihre Kunden entlang des gesamten Systemlebenszyklus.
