1 Workshop Extension on Sun Oct 05, 2008 7:48 pm


all Dornie fans are aware that Dirk's workshop is undergoing major facility extension work.

Does anybody (or Dirk ?) any pictures of the "work in progress" ?

I hadn't been aware that Dirk & Co. were planning a major extension of the facilities. I am glad to see that the business is doing well and there is no doubt that all of the Dornblueth team deserve every success and reward for all their fantastic work to date.

Perhaps selfishly, I also hope that the expansion of the facility won't result in any major changes to the personal, friendly and highly individual nature of the enterprise.

I'd be very interested in hearing any other details of the expansion that any other forum members may have and naturally I wish Dirk and the others the very best with the changes.

Hello everybody,
as Roux already mentioned, we expand our workshop in two floors with a few square meters. The step was necessary to have
1. some privacy with clients, who visit us and
2. to have a change in the working space because of small working area and to realize a better work environment of our team

Both we realized with the new building, which has a dimension of 50 sqm in total on two floors.
In the first floor we have our new presenation room, which is still not 100% finished yet, but we plan to have that until beginning next year (January/February).
Furthermore we moved the staff room in the second floor to have some more space for the bigger old machines, which have been in a very small room, where only one person was able to work in at the same time. This bigger room was necessary to have a another, ver yold engraving machine, which gives us the possibiltry to create the engraved dials for our this year's released Regulator and Gorch Fock I- timepieces.
The second floor has a room with the smaller (watchmakerlike Very Happy ) machines, which moved into the old assembling room, and the new assembling room. The new working space gives each employee more place to work without disturbing the others. Furthermore we have much more daylight, thanks the huuuge windows we installed.

So, the expansion we made is small in comparison to others, but for the daily work and life in our team it was the best decision we could make.

I would be very honoured to welcome you here in our manufacture sooner or later.
