DIENES Werke celebrate 110 years of company history – the 4th generation follows up
In February 2023, DIENES Werke celebrated its 110th anniversary. The beginnings were made in Remscheid. After the First World War, DIENES, coming from Remscheid, looked for a suitable location for a production facility to produce circular knives and valves itself. DIENES found this place in 1920 in Overath-Vilkerath, which is still the headquarters of the international group of companies today.
The company has always diversified its product range so that, in addition to circular knives, it offers knife holders, multiple knife blocks, complete slitting systems and a wide range of services. Digital services from the TEOC (“The End of Coincidences”) product family complete the DIENES portfolio in the field of hardware and software with the aim of providing customers with data-based optimization. As a second pillar, DIENES is also active in valve technology for industrial applications in compressors, pumps and compressors.
In addition to the company anniversary, DIENES Werke is pleased to welcome Julian Supe-Dienes as an additional family member to the management team as of March 2023. Currently, Dipl.-Ing. Rudolf Supe-Dienes, who originally managed the company with his brother Bernd in the third generation, is the sole managing director. With Julian Supe-Dienes, the fourth generation is now also represented in the management. After studying industrial engineering in Aachen, Julian Supe-Dienes was able to gain professional experience in leading international companies before joining the family business as sales manager in September 2021.
With Maja Supe-Dienes, another member of the founding family has joined DIENES Werke as of March 1, 2023. As project manager in the area of company development and optimization, she will develop and implement new business strategies in close cooperation with the management in order to continue to position the company for the future. After completing her Master’s degree in Management at the ESMT in Berlin, she already completed a traineeship at DIENES and subsequently worked for a leading management consultancy.
Both members of the family are looking forward to following in the footsteps of the previous generations and to actively shaping the development of the company together with the international team.
