Innovations are part of a long tradition in our Company's history, which owes its origins to the enterprise and energy of Friedrich Duss, who founded a small workshop in Neubulach, in 1920, for the production of electrical control panels and DC motors.
From a small family business, a modern industrial undertaking evolved, specialising in power drills, rotary hammers and diamond core drills which, thanks to a spirit of inventiveness and countless patents, has acquired an international reputation. Among its outstanding successes, DUSS can claim a number of technological achievements which, today, are taken for granted by users on building sites.
Thus, at the beginning of the 1950s, DUSS startled the building trade with the invention of a fully insulated, hand-held drill. At about the same time, a two-speed rotary drill with pistol grip also bore the name of DUSS.
The Company was responsible for another milestone at the beginning of the 1960s with the development of a electro-pneumatic combi hammer, which, for the first time, featured an integrated dust extraction, a safety clutch, a drilling/chiselling selector switch and oil mist lubrication - all revolutionary at the time.
Moreover, since then, DUSS has repeatedly astonished the experts in the field with new developments, a long series of which extend all the way to the present day. A few years ago, the Company was able to introduce the world's first SDS-max combi hammer in the 4-kilo class.
We look with pride on our DIA 303 W three-speed diamond core drill, which is admired for its outstanding performance and compact angular design.
While applications may have changed, our original policy still holds good. As always, we give priority to the quest for the optimum in industrial products, made to the highest quality standards. This principle runs like a red thread through the entire history of the DUSS Company. A living, innovative tradition which we maintain with the utmost conviction and commitment.
