We became an official company taking on trainees. 


The Competence of being a Manufacturer

Despite numerous publications to the contrary in various print media, the proportion of thread cutting tools genuinely producedd by Germany manufacturer continues to shrink. As a result of well known manufacturers relocating production to the Far East only a handful of local manufacturers have survived - we are proud to say that we are one of those companies !

Even on the cutting-Tool aftermarket the „one-euro mentality“ is winning the day. Tons of threading tools are imported from the Far East - mainly in outrageous quality, with attractive laser marking, embellished but counterfeited coatings and packagings and often are sold as „German quality products“ at bargain prices. This raises high profit margins at vendors but users are often the ones who suffer.

So how can you protect yourself?

Ask your sales representative for details. Only a real manufacturer has real expertise. We provide advice and do not only read to you from competitiors catalog. Dapprich - manufacturer of taps & dies since 1883. We have answers to your questions !

Our Know-how on special cutting tools will sort the wheat from the chaff. Whoever is able to find solutions for complex cutting tasks, has also the authority for „standard“ cutting tasks. Our share of special tools is nearly at 40% of turnover. That‘s why we are even a
preferred partner at many of our competitors.

When getting offers: Check the tool-quality and not the packaging. Most inferior tools will gladly offered in handsome boxes and often include useless information. This simulates a high quality product and does distract from the tool. Consider this: The packaging only has a purely protective function and will never give answers about quality of content.

If the seller is masquerading as a producer and you are in doubt, ask him to arrange a viewing-tour throughout his production plant. So-called production facilities abroad are frequent excuses of external cheap-stuff production. We at Dapprich produce our taps in
Wuppertal/Germany with European steel. This ensures the best and consistent quality at high level of flexibility - even at deliverytimes. Come and visit us - you are welcome !

Trust the extensive experience of a real producer and remember:
The real value of a tool is calculated by Price divided by tool-life!

Matching our philosophy - see what John Ruskin already mentioned in 19. Century (Citation)

''There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price  alone are that person's lawful prey. It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot... It can't be done. If
you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.''

An early Dpprich-Philosoph
