DORMA Celebrates Historic Milestone With Manufacture of 100 Millionth Door Closer

DORMA, the global market leader of door controls, automatics, glass and movable walls, has reached a massive milestone – the manufacture of its 100 millionth door closer.

Reinforcing the company’s position as a clear leader in its field, the milestone reflects the proven performance, reliability and brand position DORMA has within the market.

DORMA first started making door closers in 1950, revolutionising the market and, in the process, elevating the company to clear world leader. Now, the group comprises 71 wholly-owned companies in 47 different countries. With major production plants in Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, China and North and South America, it has an international workforce of around 6,600 employees.

To maintain its global position, DORMA operates an ongoing programme of research and development. This saw it launch the first surface mounted cam-action door closer in 1986. A natural development of the company’s original door closer, the TS 93 offered advanced technology to provide rapid decrease in opening resistance, making it particularly suitable in helping to meet the requirements of Approved Document M and BS8300. Since the launch of cam action door closers, DORMA has manufactured over 10 million units.

Other firsts have included the TS 59, which was the first door closer to be marine approved, the TS 69 which was the first transom door closer and the TS 97, the first product within the CONTUR design range which includes panic hardware, lever handles and automatic door operators.

“With the manufacture of our 100 millionth door closer, DORMA has reached an important milestone,” commented David Stacey, Head of Regional Division (Door Controls). “DORMA continues to lead the way in door closer technology all over the world. Reaching this milestone illustrates the company’s continued growth, the brand value and the trust that specifiers, contractors and end users have in our products.”

DORMA’s products have been specified for some of the most high profile projects all over the world. Combining high quality design, engineering and manufacture they offer performance and reliability that are second to none.
