160 years of innovation – made in Germany

In 2020, the Dürkopp Adler Group will be celebrating 160 years of innovation, creativity and automation – made in Europe.
Since 1860, Dürkopp Adler has been creating countless pioneering products with a great deal of passion and expertise – from the first manually operated sewing machine to a fully automated 3D robotic sewing and welding system.
Founded in the city of Bielefeld in North Rhine-Westphalia, our group of companies now offer strong and traditional brands like Dürkopp Adler, Pfaff and KSL at local points of sale around the world!
“You don’t have to be young to be innovative – it’s a state of mind”, stresses Dietrich Eickhoff, the CEO of the Dürkopp Adler Group. “Innovation is encoded in our company’s DNA. Our aim is to constantly and expertly meet our customers’ requirements for productive joining technology in the industrial sewing and welding sector.
“Our anniversary is a nice opportunity to look back proudly on the contribution our products have made to global advances in sewing and welding technology. That’s what constantly motivates our employees and reinforces the fact that innovation and customer focus are the cornerstones of our business”.
We’ve been pushing the boundaries of sewing technology for 160 years, and we’ll continue to offer our expertise in the future! Join us on our inspiring journey as we look back on our past 160 years in the world of sewing technology.
