Herdecke-based company DÖRKEN offers a wealth of expertise in the fields of physical membranes and chemical coating solutions, with their interaction creating scope for further synergy effects, innovations and expansion.
Premium membranes, tinting technology, micro-layer corrosion protection and paints, varnishes and dispersions are the key areas of interest for the globally active, family-run company - and have been for over 125 years. However, only through interaction can maximum expertise be passed on to partners and customers and new projects and innovations created in the future.
“We are all DÖRKEN. With the new brand architecture, the uniform design and the strong joint claim ‘Discover Expertise’, we can now communicate this outwardly in a clear and inviting manner,” says DÖRKEN CEO Thorsten Koch. "That which belongs together, grows together.”
Antonie de Saint-Exupéry was well aware of this: “What is essential is invisible to the eye.” This also applies for the state-of-the-art membranes that store or drain water on flat and pitched roofs, protecting the buildings against condensation or other influences. These also include the seemingly superficial colorations of a freshly painted house. Finally, these also include corrosion protection for, as an example, the tiniest components of a car.
“One thing that is visible with us is our experts. Our experts with a passion for the unseen,” says Thorsten Koch proudly. “With the new motto ‘Discover Expertise‘ we invite everyone to discover this expertise in all of our products, services and across all communications channels, whether they are digital or classic.”
In the newly developed tiny house, for example, which demonstrates the individual areas of competence and expertise in the field of physical membranes as well as chemical coating solutions. The manner in which the two areas interact and harmonize is visible and tangible here in the smallest of spaces.
In the course of the repositioning, the Herdecke company has also adjusted its orientation: since 1 August 2020 Dörken MKS-Systeme, CD-Color and Protec Systempasten have merged to form one company under the name Dörken Coatings GmbH & Co. KG. At the same time, Dörken GmbH & Co. KG now markets its pitched roof and façade sheeting, foundation wall protection and drainage systems under the name Dörken Membranes. The “DÖRKEN” umbrella brand remains for the corporate group as a whole.
