How the twist began.

The Dorfmüller family in the year 1910. In the middle you see the founder of the company, Mr David Dorfmüller.


It was a tiny smithy in a cellar where it all began. In the German town of Remscheid, back in the year 1884, two brothers David and Friedrich Dorfmüller started to manufacture drills. Sixteen years later, David Dorfmüller expanded the range of products, employed his four sons and moved with them into newly built factory premises. The turning point (in the finest sense of the word) came after World War I, when the family produced machine tools for wood processing; the first DDS fasteners were on the way. In the fifties, David’s grandson Wolfgang Dorfmüller entered the family business. Very soon he concentrated the production on slotted round nuts and nuts with set pin holes. He invested in modern turning machines to manufacture bigger metric fasteners. In the long run, DDS conquered a corner in the market, due to bigger dimensions and fine accuracy. The family enterprise expanded. In 1986, the company moved into the newly built premises on Dreherstraße in Remscheid. The millennium brought new challenges; again DDS needed to expand. In 2009 – just in time for the 125th anniversary – the family business added a newly built production hall and the offices moved into bigger rooms on top of the factory. Nowadays, David Dorfmüller Söhne supply the world market – nuts for Norwegian offshore drilling platforms, for example. Wolfgang’s son Klaus and his former son-in-law Michael Hake are the fourth generation at the head of the company – and the fifth is already prepared to take over. The future of this family enterprise is secured.
