About Us

Innovation and Tradition

As a medium-sized family company, we have always successfully combined the expertise we have gained over the decades with the current market tendencies in order to develop innovative products. Our passion and curiosity for this kind of product development have made us internationally recognized as specialists for additives and have earned us wide-ranging acceptance and appreciation in markets throughout the world.

In more detail:

“Many of you already know DOG. The year 2022 was again a special anniversary, because then the DOG has existed for 120 years - an extraordinary achievement and a history of which we are proud.

Additives for the rubber industry (rubber, elastomers and more), special additives for the lubricants industry and, for about 10 years now, new special additives for the coating and plastics sectors.

Combining innovation and tradition is our passion!

Respect and appreciation for knowledge from DOG's past paired with innovative approaches from current needs, be it from industry or society, that is what constantly accompanies us.

Our modern R&D laboratory and a well-trained, fully motivated and inquisitive laboratory team are fully committed to the search for more quality, efficiency and sustainability. By the way, already now 10% of the entire DOG staff is employed in the R&D department.

The topic of sustainability is not really new to us, yet we are highly focused on researching for more!

Not always alone! Close cooperation with national and international universities and similar institutions is part of our strategy to strengthen our competitiveness, to protect our planet and, very importantly, to support Hamburg and its environmental goals with all our strength.

DOG is active worldwide and accompanies internationally active customers; this means that even quality requirements are recognized in good time and taken into account in our research work.

Let our specialists inform you and find out where DOG might be "involved" in your everyday life! You will be amazed and perhaps even feel the desire to shape the future together with us.

We look forward to your visit."
