Company History


Dürkoppwerke AG and Kochs Adler AG, seeing the need to maintain a presence near the lives of their customers and the manufacturing of their products, each established operations in the United States.  Adler America, Inc. was founded in 1978 and followed by Dürkopp America, Inc. in 1985.

Following the merger of their parent companies, the U. S. subsidiaries followed suit.  Thus, on the first of January 1991, Dürkopp Adler America, Inc. was founded.

Combining the strength of the two companies, the new company, Dürkopp Adler America, Inc. was able to offer comprehensive product lines directly to the automotive and upholstery sectors, as well as the apparel and uniform industries.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Durkopp Adler AG in Bielefeld, Germany, the company today serves North American, Central and South American markets, as well as the Caribbean from their headquarters in Norcross, Georgia.

Dürkopp Adler America’s team is committed to customer satisfaction.  They recognize this dedication to quality as the key to Dürkopp Adler America’s reputation.  Whether in the automotive, upholstery or apparel industries, Durkopp Adler America is known as a reliable partner throughout the Americas.

We are committed to providing the outstanding consulting and technical services that will create the next successful chapter in the story of Dürkopp Adler America.
