DERKOM+KLEIN - Company Profile

In December 1912 Hermann Derkom founded "Remscheider Schleif- und Polierindustrie Derkom & Co." in Remscheid near Solingen, Germany. A few years later, in 1917, he took over "Westdeutsche Schmirgel- und Schleifmittelfabrik GmbH" in Solingen-Wald.

Production site in the 1920s

In the following years Derkom began to use magnesite for manufacturing large grinding wheels, a material previously not well known. His goal was to replace the hazardous sandstone types, which had been the cause of so-called grinder's lung.

Historical advertising

After WWII and economic recovery, modernization of the company and the merger with the Solingen company Paul Klein & Co., DERKOM+KLEIN developped into a specialist in the field of magnesite and resin-bound grinding wheels.

DERKOM + KLEIN is a long-established company, large enough to produce rationally and cost effective and small enough to be flexible and individual. The products range from magnesite and resin bonded grinding wheels to two-zone grinding wheels and dressing tools. Our abrasives consist of binding components, sintered corundum and silicon carbides and are developped and manufactured individually for each customer´s application.

High-grade materials

An essential condition for the consistent quality of grinding products is compliance with the exact quantities of raw materials. At DERKOM computerized metering systems and electronic weighing systems are used. This guarantees correct filling weights within tightest tolerances. Combined with proven mixing technology this results in an accurate reproducibility of products. Each product specification is stored in databases to guarantee long term consistent quality.
