LOGISTICS

ALLOVER THE WORLD FROM GERMANY

LOGISTICS AND TRADE

Our logistics centre was built in 2008 and provides space for about 10,000 palettes and 4,800 lower shelf places. Thus, delivery is even faster and better. Flexible production and flexible logistics work hand in hand. An R&D department with a laboratory on university level is also on-site. 

The building was designed by the renowned Berlin-based architect Stefan Fehse: His creation is highlighting DRONCO's connection to its home: Wood from the nearby Fichtel Mountains as well as glass produced by the Wunsiedel-based company Lamberts is used.

PRODUCT SAFETY

DRONCO'S QUALITY MANAGEMENT

Safety first

Cutting and grinding discs require a very high circumferential speed of the tool in many areas of application. Therefore, our products are specifically designed to safely withstand the extreme mechanical and thermal stresses and strains. All DRONCO products correspond to current standards and the regulations of the trade association. Our quality management system ensures that we meet the high demands of a modern, worldwide acting industrial enterprise on each level. Certification in accordance to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 is therefore just as normal as our oSa membership.

MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY

State-of-the-art TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT

Technology Leader

The most modern, pioneering manufacturing technology, highly qualified employees and the unique DRONCO production system - this is what makes our production flexible, efficient, precise. Our products meet the highest quality demands. DRONCO developed a moulding press system, which is among the most modern systems in the world. After an almost complete exchange of our production systems, we are the technology leader in our industry. The new machines do not only offer more production capacity, but also a higher quality of the products. In 2016, we will expand our production capacities by two high-performance presses.
