Domiciled in Herdecke, our family enterprise hoards 125 years of experience with innovative products. Many years of knowhow and continuous growth have made Dörken GmbH & Co. KG what it is today. An independent subsidiary of Ewald Dörken AG that is owner-managed in the fourth generation, we think in terms of decades, not business years. This enables us to make long-range plans and act sustainably even in dynamic markets.
Dörken offers perfectly matched DELTA® system solutions, pitched-roof sheets, flat-roof sheets, facing sheets, drainage and waterproofing sheets for foundation protection, and a comprehensive range of system accessories. We have the right solution for any requirement, from cellar to roof, from surface to detail.
With its comprehensive service package, Dörken GmbH & Co. KG of Herdecke has attained a leading position in the European market for building materials. For more than 40 years, high-quality products have been made under the DELTA® brand name, all offering a maximum of safety, reliability, and energy-saving capability and backed up by an internationally active company with a team of highly motivated employees.
In 2016, Dörken was once again distinguished as one of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany. Where insulation underlays, waterproofing sheets, sarking membranes, and soft sheathing are concerned, Dörken is the Number 1 partner for dealers, craftsmen, and planners.
Behind every service segment you will find people to talk with directly and personally. Thus, anyone who works with products from Herdecke will receive the same attention anywhere in the world, be it the uniformly outstanding product quality or the application-related consultation on the spot. Every single one of our more than 900 employees worldwide stands for that.
You may take us at our word regarding our promise 'Dörken protects property. Saves energy. Creates comfort.' For our system solutions from cellar to roof provide convincing results – worldwide. Why? Because of the high quality of our products 'made in Germany', our easily practicable solutions, the precisely fitting combinations of products and accessories, and the outstanding service we offer you from the word go.
Why not benefit yourself from the extreme reliability and lasting functional performance furnished by innovative and efficient products of Dörken's proven quality which we permanently review and improve in our own test laboratories? Thus, you may rely not only on top-quality materials.
Sustainability has been a hallmark of the DNA of a family company like Dörken from the start. No wonder, then, that life in such an environment is uniquely characterised by friendly coexistence between the young and the old generation. Within such a corporate culture it almost goes without saying that ecological progress is being made systematically as well; after all, the welfare of our grandchildren and their grandchildren is always at stake, too.
Quality management systems are a good thing, but a management system that combines quality, safety, economy, and environmental protection is much more forward-looking. For this reason, Dörken GmbH & Co. KG has established a combined quality, workplace safety, and environmental management system under DIN EN ISO 9001:2000, DIN EN ISO 14001, and EMAS II, a.k.a. eco-audit. Thereby, we voluntarily undertake to continue developing our corporate environmental protection in conformance with defined environmental objectives even beyond legal requirements and to document this by adhering to strict criteria.
Our laminated sheets division was certified under EN ISO 9001 as early as 1994. Both in Germany and abroad, the quality of our products is regularly certified by independent institutes and experts. In matters of quality, we often go one step further: many products conform to a new standard long before such conformance is required in law. Our slogan 'DELTA protects property. Saves energy. Creates comfort.' is the leit-motif as well as the programme of Dörken GmbH & Co. KG: out of respect for nature, the aspect of environmental protection is strictly observed everywhere.
But we proceed sustainably not only with regard to our products. Our employee training system is forward-looking too, and the training rate is high.
In the Westphalian town of Herdecke, Dörken has expanded to the boundaries of the land that has been available for generations. To facilitate further expansion, we have been developing a site at Hagen-Vorhalle since 1999. Most recently, a state-of-the-art spunbond production facility was opened there in 2015.
From our headquarters at Herdecke, a worldwide network of subsidiaries stretches to Belgium, France, Italy, Canada, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Slovakia, Czechia, Turkey, and Hungary, including numerous sales partners. For manufacturing dimpled sheets, we have additional production sites in Canada and Turkey.
There are many other countries where Dörken has been co-operating for many years with sales partners who not only have accepted Dörken's sales concept but live it. In this way, we not only export goods but influence standards and manufacturing guidelines, sales paths, and marketing and, not least, the personalised consultation of customers on the spot.
