DELO – The hidden champion from Bavaria

We are a leading manufacturer of industrial adhesives headquartered in Windach near Munich, Bavaria. As an owner-managed business, for over 50 years we have been supplying our special customized adhesives and equipment systems for applications in high-tech industries such as automotive, aviation, optoelectronics, and electronics. With subsidiaries in the USA, China, Singapore and Japan as well as representatives throughout the world, we make sure that our customers receive expert advice wherever they are.

We develop customized solutions in conjunction with our customers. Our teams in sales, product management, research, development, and engineering work hand in hand as early as the development phase of a new product. They help to integrate our products into the customer's manufacturing processes and support ongoing production.


Our adhesive solutions bring strength to the innovative power of our customers. We identify current requirements and develop matching products. We are opening up new market segments in various future-oriented industries where we are a technology leader. DELO invests 15 percent of its sales in research and development, and we generate 30 percent with our products that are less than three years old


We develop adhesive solutions in three areas of expertise: special high-quality adhesives, innovative devices, and full customer support. Our focus is on high performance products for fast manufacturing processes. Our own skills set makes us both independent and unique.


Continuous change is our day-to-day business. A willingness to shape these changes is important. This is why we actively develop our product portfolio and align our company structure to new markets and requirements. Short decision-making paths and flat hierarchies promote independent action.


We continuously achieve two-digit sales growth and create secure jobs in Germany. We are systematically pursuing internationalization for successful business expansion. Even in the future we will remain an independent family business. Profitable growth is the basis for our long-term success.


Global customer support and the greatest possible customer benefit ensure our long-term success. Our engineers, chemists, and physicists give expert advice on complex issues surrounding adhesives technology. We achieve a high level of customer satisfaction with the impressive quality of our products and by working fairly and in a spirit of trust with our partners. This is our unique selling proposition.


We are an international team of dedicated and highly trained employees. We invest about six percent of staffing costs in education and training. Customers trust us because of our technical expertise and integrity.
