The world is changing and deserves sustainable solutions to humanity’s ecological challenges. The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions concerns us all. Led by the values of quality, innovation, reliability and flexibility, we rely on healthy growth and applied sustainability in all of the processes and solutions. We do this with more than 300 employees and 70 representatives in 80 countries.
One Vision. Zero Emissions.
Combining technology and the environment is simultaneously a commitment and a challenge – for our employees, partners, and customers all over the world. Our “One Vision. Zero Emissions.” guideline is thus consistently implemented in practice.
Innovation as a Factor of Success
Process solutions from the idea through to series production
We are dedicated to manufacturing innovative products. We, as a highly innovative company, continually pursue new solutions for practical application. Safety, economic efficiency and ergonomics are our guidelines.
When stipulating the appropriate component for each application the components and materials are subject to strict material and endurance tests. Everything which is created on the virtual drawing board is carefully assembled with great attention as a prototype and thoroughly tested. Measuring devices and components for measuring instruments for example are tested for functionality in climate cabinets under extreme climatic conditions.
After successful test, the prototype is integrated into the system – for example an SF6 service cart - and is finally tested thoroughly in our test centre.
Our engineers and technicians always search for user-friendly solutions perfectly made to fit customer requirements. For development we attach great importance to close collaboration with our customers since user feedback flows directly into our product development. Thus we turn customer problems into practical solutions for professional and emission-free gas handling.
We are dedicated to quality and delivery reliability. With this focus in mind we always pursue a strategy with a high level of vertically integrated manufacturing.
Core competence within our company
All key components which require a high production competence are generally manufactured in our company – no matter whether SF6 coupling parts, safety valves or compressor components. Regarding our sub-contractors we only cooperate with companies which meet our quality requirements without any compromises.
'Made in Germany' Quality
Performance oriented flow assembly, continual improvement of the operational procedure and close integration with the development department guarantee high production efficiency. Our integrated quality management ensures excellence in the manufacturing of products which fulfil the requirement of 'Made in Germany' quality.
Flexibility and delivery reliability
The high in-house production ratio provides high flexibility and independence. Therefore even in extreme cases we are able to meet customer requirements quickly.
Top quality from the outset is the DILO philosophy. That is what our success is built upon. We leave nothing to chance. All processes from market analysis to product development, design, production, sales, training and service are integrated into the DILO quality management system. This ensures the high standard of all our products and services.
Continuous improvement (CIP) is an essential part of our quality philosophy and is implemented in practice in a whole range of projects. We examine and optimise administrative and production processes in line with the lean model. Our philosophy is zero waste.
Environmental and climate protection
We live up to our responsibility for environmental protection through the quality of our products: DILO devices prevent the emission of SF6 gas into the environment, contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gases.
Sustainability also defines our own environmental policy. DIN 14001:2015 certification for us as a company represents an obligation to keep improving our environmental performance.
For example, we use green electricity only, and our company is also embracing e-mobility. One electric car is already in use, and we have two charging points for electric cars that customers and visitors can use. All staff who have e-bikes can charge the batteries for free at the company site.
Water is a valuable resource and we are committed to using it responsibly. Rinsing water for metal parts is reused multiple times. Only minimal amounts of water that cannot be cleaned are disposed of – naturally in accordance with statutory and environmental requirements.
