"If you stop getting better, you stop being good"

True to that motto, research & development traditionally have a high standing at DMG. And in the 

company’s history this has led to many groundbreaking new developments. 

It is therefore no surprise that currently 20% of the approximately 300 DMG employees work in the research 

and product development division.
