Factory modules for an extremely flexible production system

Dornbracht: World leader in premium-quality fittings and accessories

Since 1950, the globally operating family business Aloys F. Dornbracht GmbH has produced top-quality fittings and accessories for bathrooms and kitchens. Dornbracht stands for premium manufacturing quality, multi award-winning design and advanced production methods. The company is headquartered in Iserlohn.

Factory modularisation emerged as a way to not only accelerate processes significantly but also create completely new forms of cooperation. One of the first modules was produced for kitchen fittings and contained everything from assembly and all administrative functions from product management to order processing. The short distances between all project participants and faster communication have simplified the whole process.

Matthias Dornbracht says: "We were intrigued by the idea of a modular concept. Today we couldn't imagine being without the dynamics that emerged as a result. The modules allow us to grow and change in the standardised building units. We are thus in a much better position to adapt and advance. A lot of things have become more manageable and are much easier to carry out than they used to."
