history

Dugar + Schuster was founded on the first of Juli 1974 by Mr. Janos Dugar and Mr. Horst Schuster in the central Ruhrgebiet city of Essen. The timing was conceivably unfavourable – the oil crisis was followed by an economic crisis and the start up was rocky that way. Thanks to the decade-long experience of Mr. Dugar and the iron drive of Mr. Schuster, they were able to obtain interesting representations and a variety of customers in a short time though. Mr. Dugar retired due to age in the late 70’s, in order the company moved to the upcoming town Langenfeld, south of Düsseldorf. Simultaneously the foundation stone was laid for our major business segments: the aluminium wheel industry. In this course were also expanded the service area including spare parts and specialised technicians. In 1995 the second generation, Frank Schuster entered in the company. With the now doubled sales activities, existing contacts got more intense and new once could be won all over the world. In 2000 we moved into our own facilities in Langenfeld, this allowed us to increase our service activities further. Today Dugar + Schuster offers an all around service for machines of our sales program which reaches from complete rebuilds to automation. Our customers are able to access our spare part depot which holds more than 3.000 articles on 9,500sqft
