In July of last year we informed you of the new direction and further development of our company. Two major topics have kept us busy in recent months; on the one hand, the strategic realignment of our business divisions and, on the other, the set-up of a new production location in Romania. Currently, we are preparing to begin production in Romania in the middle of the second half of 2017.
One result of the realignment of our “Contacts”, “Solutions” and “Services” business divisions is the change in the legal structure of DODUCO. The current DODUCO GmbH will be split into 2 operational companies as of 1 April 2017: Our contact material business and precious metal recycling will be handled by DODUCO Contacts and Refining GmbH. All future activities to do with electromechanical components, stamped parts, strips and coating services (reel-to-reel and piece plating) will be handled by the newly founded DODUCO Solutions GmbH. Both companies reside under the currently existing DODUCO Holding GmbH. This legal separation helps us to better achieve our goals in terms of investment in new technologies and to develop our sites for the optimal support of our customers.
What does this mean for you as our customer?
As of 1 April 2017 – depending on the products we supply to you – 2 DODUCO companies will be your contractual (business) partner. One will be DODUCO Contacts and Refining GmbH; this is the already existing DODUCO GmbH. Only the corporate name is being changed. All other information (e.g. account details, commercial register number, tax number) shall remain the same just like all contractual relationships.
The other will be DODUCO Solutions GmbH. This new legally independent company, separate as of 31 March 2017, shall take over from your current contractual partner, DODUCO GmbH, for the purposes of a business transfer all contractual relationships that are relevant for products supplied by DODUCO Solutions GmbH.
Likewise, for tax reasons, on 1 April 2017 we must transfer all orders that have not yet been shipped (open orders), to DODUCO Solutions GmbH. The company address, delivery point and your usual point of contact shall remain unchanged.
The following is all the information needed for the new DODUCO Solutions GmbH:
