Im Herzen Baden-Württembergs, dem Schwarzwald wird jede einzelne DUSS Maschine erdacht, konstruiert und produziert

FRIEDRICH DUSS Maschinenfabrik is a modern, independent family-owned firm with its roots in the Black Forest at the heart of the Baden-Württemberg region in southwest Germany. It is here that every single DUSS machine is conceived, designed and produced. The workshop founded by the creative inventor and idealist Friedrich Duss in 1920 in Neubulach to produce electric control panels and DC motors has evolved into an agile company whose name is synonymous with excellence the world over. Its reputation is founded on an extensive collection of patents, premium product quality and outstanding service in the field of rotary hammer, breaker and diamond core drilling technology.


For company founder Friedrich Duss, the unconditional and uncompromising realisation of his ideas was paramount. Only six years after the company’s formation, he presented the first electric rotary drill bearing the DUSS label at the Industrial Exhibition in Leipzig, Germany. Over the years, DUSS went on to develop a whole range of technological achievements which are taken for granted by users on building sites today.
