Deutsche Annington Immobilien SE – Business Location North Rhine-Westphalia: At home in Germany!

Headquartered in Bochum, Deutsche Annington has its roots in the construction of housing for employees. Its origins were in residential housing companies and cooperatives. Today, Deutsche Annington Immobilien SE is Germany’s leading real estate company. Since its merger with GAGFAH, the company has owned and managed almost 350,000 apartments throughout Germany, bringing with it the responsibility for nearly one million tenants.
