Working. Together.

Only together can good things be achieved. This is how we started decades ago, and this is the path we will continue to follow in the future. It applies to our products and especially to our work with you, our customers and partners.

History

Surfacing the future

Elesgo Key Visual
1992
Elesgo
In 1992, the invention of Elesgo saw the light of day - our process for applying decorative layers to a substrate to develop perfect surfaces for your products.
1992
1993
Electron beam curing
Only one year later, we were able to put our first own EBC plant into operation at the Oberhausen site in 1993. This was the starting point for the surface production. Our customers in the laminate flooring industry were supplied with the first Elesgo products.
1993
1995
DTS Systemoberflächen Ltd.
Wilhelm Taubert and Dirk Dammers founded Dammers-Taubert-Systemoberflächen ltd. or simply DTS in 1995. At the same time, the construction of the production site started in Möckern.
1995
1996
Machine 1
After one year of construction, the production of Elesgo surfaces started in Möckern. Our first large EBC plant, machine 1, has been producing surfaces with a width of up to 1,450 mm since 1996.
1996
1998
Doors & Frames
Additionally to surfaces for laminate flooring, surfaces for doors and frames have been added to the product portfolio in 1998.
1998
1999
Furniture surfaces
To ensure that the furniture also matched the new Elesgo doors, the first surfaces for furniture could be offered as early as 1999.
1999
2000
High gloss & windowsills
We started the new millennium with a worldwide novelty in our production - the first high-gloss and highly scratch-resistant laminate flooring surfaces were produced in our factory. In addition, our product portfolio was expanded to include surfaces for windowsills.
2000
2002
Machine 2
With the numerous innovations and product developments, the production capacity was expanded in 2002 - and Machine 2 was put into operation. From now on, it was and is possible to produce surfaces with a width of up to 1,600 mm.
2002
2005
Worktops
In addition to the optical and haptic properties of the Elesgosurfaces, the special durability and scratch resistance were also suitable for worktops. As a result, the product portfolio had another application area starting in 2005.
2005
2006
External facades
The research and development team had added another area of application with the expansion of surfaces for exterior facades in 2008.
2006
2007
Customised surfaces
With the commissioning of the cutting and winding machine, it was possible to deliver customised rolls from 2007 onwards.
2007
2008
Machine 3
More and more satisfied buyers could be counted among the permanent customers. In order to meet the increasing demand, the Möckern site was expanded. In 2008, machine 3 was put into operation and a fully automatic high-bay warehouse with over 5,000 pallet spaces was installed to optimise our warehouse management.
2008
2009
Laboratory furniture
The further development of the technology resulted in new, additional characteristics: for example, resistance to chemicals. So in 2009, the production of specific laboratory worktop surfaces began.
2009
2013
Release Film
With the development of the release papers and texturing agents in 2013, the laminate industry was presented with a product that can be used several times in presses. A great alternative for cost-intensive press plates in quick texture changes.
2013
2015
clean touch
The clean touch surface with its anti-fingerprint properties was launched in 2015 and revolutionised the surface world.
2015
2017
Peacock Collection
The peacock collection, the first own colour collection, was developed in 2017 and is now available to every customer. It is available from stock in small quantities.

2018
Machine 3.1 & Headquarter
Machine 3 was optimised, rebuilt, and expanded by an EBC unit over a period of two years. In 2018, the administration moved from Oberhausen to Wesel.
