Foundation of the company "D+P, Dosier- und Prüftechnik GmbH"
At the beginning of the year Herbert Faaß founds his company with the name "D+P, Dosier- und Prüftechnik GmbH" as a one-man business. The company's headquarters are rented in Bopfingen-Trochtelfingen.
After only six months, the first employee is hired and a modern CNC milling machine is purchased. The production of complicated parts begins.
Development and patenting of the D+P flow meter SMG
Design and manufacturing at D+P focuses mainly on smaller fixtures, manual workstations and small machines. The first 2-axis CNC-controlled machine with sealant application station is delivered.
The highlight: Only one year after foundation, D+P develops and patents the "flow meter SMG" for monitoring viscous media. Now the rented property can be purchased and thus the company can be expanded.
Development of high pressure barrel pumps
D+P is constantly developing: its own barrel pumps (for conveying greases and pasty media) are manufactured in its own production facilities.
A new office wing extends the company premises.
Constant personnel development
By now, the company has five employees, a solid customer base and positive opportunities for further development.
From this point on, at least one new employee is hired every year, the machinery is constantly expanded and old machines are replaced by new and modern ones.
Also new: D+P has become a training company for skilled workers.
Company expansion through the construction of a new assembly hall
The customer base now also includes major customers. These appreciate D+P as a specialist for modern and highly complex individual solutions in the field of dosing, testing and assembly technology.
The construction of a new assembly hall expands the capacities.

Supraregional further development: Participation in regional trade fairs in Sindelfingen and Sinsheim expands the customer base.
New building due to company relocation to Nördlingen
The premises in Trochtelfingen are no longer sufficient for the current 24 employees. And the expansion possibilities there are also exhausted. Therefore a modern new building with office building, production and assembly hall is arranged.
With the move to Nördlingen in the Emil-Eigner-Straße, further modernization measures also take place there:
D+P is the second small company in the whole of Germany to introduce the SAP software program.
