Dittel was originally founded in 1959 to develop and manufacture aeronautical devices, and has been classified by the German Aviation Authority (LBA) as a certified developer and supplier. Today, the core competencies lie in the development and manufacture of intelligent, comprehensive process monitoring and control solutions for use in machine tools and their components. For over 50 years, the name DITTEL has stood for precision, quality and reliability.
Waltraud Klueter, former General Manager of Dittel in charge of the acquisition project, said that “working with Marposs represents a perfect opportunity to rolling out Dittel products on a broader geographic scale via Marposs’ global distribution and Customer service network. Additionally we see some very interesting new solutions coming out of the combination of Marposs and Dittel technology and products. “Everybody in Dittel is looking forward to working with Marposs over the coming years to join our leading positions towards a further grow of the Grinding Process Monitoring sector.”
Marposs’s President, Stefano Possati, commented: “Dittel offers cutting-edge solutions with large potential to be used in additional applications and by current and future Marposs customers on a global basis.” Mr. Possati added: “Our goal is growing in a solid and continued way both in our traditional and new markets. After the acquisition of ARTIS in 2008, SANTec in 2011 and BRANKAMP last February, all of them leading German Companies operating in the same application sector, this new cooperation will create a powerful group of quality companies with products that are complementary to those of Marposs. This is a strategy that we will continue using in addition to our strong activity in research and development inside the Company.”
