Currently, the Wilo Group has over 60 production companies and distribution companies besides WILO SE. In most cases, WILO SE holds a direct majority stake in its subsidiaries. WILO SE holds an indirect majority stake in only seven of its subsidiaries.

The internal organisational and management structure of the Wilo Group is based on three dimensions: region, market segment and product area (division). The leading organisational dimension is the region, which also forms the basis for segment reporting.

In the individual regions, the respective regional management works in close cooperation with the heads of the market segments and product area. This ensures that the needs of the individual customer groups are met in an optimum manner. The HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) division adopts a targeted focus on heating, air conditioning and cooling applications with an emphasis on the Building Services market segment. The CWW (Clean and Waste Water) division covers clean water as well as drainage and sewage applications for the Building Services, Water Management and Industry market segments.
