The Section provides the platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences between the member companies on current technical, economic, legal and socio-political topics in the environment of the electrical industry. The small appliance manufacturing sector is characterised by a medium-sized structure of manufacturers. The resulting diversity of brands and products in turn benefits prospective buyers.

In the section, common positions are developed and represented vis-à-vis politics, administration, associations and interest groups. The trade association is sustainably committed to the common interests of manufacturers at German and European level. The member companies can access a wide range of services. The ZVEI supports its members with information on economic, technical, trade policy and legal issues. Members benefit from the ZVEI's close contact with politicians and interest groups as well as from the exchange of experience across trade associations.
