Max Dörr Conveying Systems was founded
In 1966, Max Albert Dörr took a risk and decided to set up his own independent company: Max Dörr Conveying Systems. The company started life with just one other employee, in a former dairy in the village of Richen in Heilbronn.
The move to Gemmingen
As the company expanded and gained more employees, more space was needed. Therefore we built and moved into our first manufacturing hall in Gemmingen, near Heilbronn.
Ascending conveyor for Palmbräu
Our first orders came from our region. For example, the solution we came up with for loading crates of beverages for the local brewery in Eppingen.
Expansion of the manufacturing area
An increase in turnover and rising demand for ever larger and larger systems led to the construction of another manufacturing hall.
Automation solutions for global stakeholders
Numerous renowned corporations, such as Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Deutsche Bank and many more, rely on the high level of customization and flexibility in our broad range of products. Shown here: pallet conveying technology with telescopic belts for Bosch.
Founding of Thomas Dörr Cutlery and Kitchen Systems
After developing and successfully presenting a cutlery wrapping system, we recognized the potential in this market and founded a subsidiary. Today, it is a market leader for cutlery polishing machines, glass polishing machines, cutlery wrapping machines, cutlery sorting machines and butter dispensers.
Construction of a new production and warehousing hall.
Due to the sustained success of Max Dörr GmbH and the huge growth of its subsidiary, the company building was expanded.
