• KWS building in Berlin
    Welcome to KWS in Berlin

We are KWS and this is what we do

We are a seed specialist focusing on plant breeding, production and sales of seeds for corn, sugarbeet, cereals, rapeseed, sunflowers, vegetables and other agricultural crops. KWS uses cutting-edge plant breeding methods. Today more than 6,000 employees represent KWS in more than 70 countries. KWS was founded 1856 in Klein Wanzleben. Our Headquarters today are located in Einbeck a city in Lower Saxony (Link Company factsheet) and we are publicly listed in S-Dax, one of the major German stock indeces.

We are one of the leading growers and seed producers in the world and contribute with our products to the solution of feeding the world population. According to the UN by the end of 2050, we expect more than 9 bilion people on our planet. At the same time the arable land stagnates which leads to a great challenge for farmers around the world. With our mission to develop more resource-saving varieties which are at the same time more stress tolerant, we are part of the future of food and contribute by crops with increasing yield per hektar.

What differenciates us from our main competitors - we are family-oriented, independent and we focus on seeds only.

KWS in Berlin

In 2018 we opened our office in Berlin as part of our Global Business Excellence initiative. At first we worked from a temporary office at Potsdamer Platz before finally in March 2020 we moved into our permanent office location at Bülowstraße - just before the pandemic outbreak. That's why you don't see any colleagues on the pictures just yet.

Today we are already an interantional team of more than 480.

In our Berlin office we bundle all administrative functions and services at KWS. It provides administrative services and provides the strategic administrative framework for KWS and its entities around the world.

All the administrative functions / departments are split between our HQs in Einbeck and our office in Berlin. In Berlin we are home to the functions of Global HR, Global Finance&Procurement and parts of Global Controlling, IT, and Legal. In addition, our Global Transaction Center (Shared Service Center) is located in our Berlin office.

From Berlin we serve the whole KWS world and there couldn't be any better place than Berlin for this kind of purpose. KWS Berlin is like Berlin itself; a cultural melting pot with colleagues coming from all over the world. In fact, more than 70% of all our Berlin colleagues are non-German.

Because of that our business language here in Berlin is English and so, for many of our jobs there's no German required.

We are still in our build-up phase in Berlin and do need many new colleagues with a hands-on mentality. We see us as a start-up within KWS, this means that not every process is already set up and our colleagues need to be willing to mold KWS Berlin.

If you want to be part of shaping the future of KWS and have fun in creating new processes and structures you are the right one for us. Does it sound interesting to you?

If the weather allows it, you can have lunch or an after work drink on our two roof top terraces with a 360° view over the city. You see the Teufelsberg with the former US listening station in the west, Alexander Platz with TV tower, Berlin Cathedral and Sony Center in Mitte. In the south the Gasometer is visible. From here you will realize how flat Berlin is.
