THE EXTRAORDINARY CORPORATE HISTORYof Thomas Dörr GBR Kitchen Systems

 

1966

OUR ORIGINS

In 1966, “Max Dörr GmbH, Förderanlagen” (Conveyor Systems) was founded in Gemmingen near Heilbronn. To this day, the company manufactures and sells conveyor systems for the in-house transport of individually packaged goods.

1995

Development of the
cutlery wrapping machine

Spurred by the current recession and an unusual customer request, the company bravely stepped outside its core business and developed a machine that wraps cutlery in napkin paper.

2000

PRESENTATION OF THE CUTLERY WRAPPING MACHINE

After five years of development, the world’s first cutlery wrapping machine was ready to go into production, making its debut at HOGATEC, the international trade fair for hotel and catering technology hosted by Messe Düsseldorf.

2001

FOUNDING OF THOMAS DÖRR CUTLERY AND KITCHEN SYSTEMS

The cutlery wrapping machine’s tremendous success led to the founding of subsidiary “Thomas Dörr Besteck- und Küchensysteme” (Cutlery and Kitchen Systems).

2002

LAUNCH OF THE FIRST READY-FOR-MARKET
CUTLERY POLISHING MACHINE

The launch of CD 3000, our first cutlery polishing machine, paved the way for a slew of customer-oriented solutions for the catering and hotel industries.

2004

TECHNICAL ADVANCEMENTS AND NEW MODELS

Our market analysis and numerous customer requests indicated a demand for machines in different sizes. Over the following years, we developed many models more.

2008

PATENTED AUTOMATED FILLING SYSTEM

With our new TD 3000 Fill&Go model, we helped reduce the time and personnel costs previously required for inserting cutlery by hand. Other models were subsequently equipped with our Fill&Go technology.
