In 1982 DEWERT began as a small individual enterprise producing the DYMAT single drive. By 1988 we had expanded quickly, and were producing our first double drive. As our success grew, larger premises became inevitable and we moved into today’s building in 1991.
Since 1992, DEWERT has belonged to the Phoenix Mecano AG group of companies, expanding its sales and distribution with 30 agencies worldwide. From 2003 onwards, we set about increasing our commitment in the international market and in particular the Far East . To meet the challenge of ongoing globalisation, sales companies were set up in China, Taiwan and Korea in 2004. At the same time, the market position of the Shanghai production site, which was founded in 1996, was consolidated.
In February 2009, the Phoenix Mecano group acquired the furniture division from OKIN, which operates as an independent unit within the Phoenix Mecano group. As of July 1st, 2009, Phoenix Mecano AG reorganised the sales and marketing departments of DEWERT and OKIN. To provide a clear market orientation for our customers, DEWERT now concentrates on purpose-built actuators for the care and medical sectors, while OKIN focuses on actuators for the home, office, bedding and seating markets.
Today the company can boast the most comprehensive product range in it’s field. Whatever the requirement, we can always offer a motorised system to fulfil your needs.
