Company history

Our company history takes its origin in 1981, when the later founder of the company, Dr. Reiner Schulze, published scientific and practical approaches to the subject of “cut-off grinding of hard stone” in his doctoral thesis. From his experience, profound technical knowledge and a vision of a complete customer-oriented service in the field of diamond technology from one source, the company Dr. Schulze was founded in 1984 in Wilnsdorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, which has been operating as a limited liability company since 1986.

Thanks to our flexibility, competence and a constant product adaptation to the needs of our customers, we quickly developed from a small old production hall with a few employees to a modern manufacturing plant offering a complete range of diamond tools for construction and natural stone processing.

Mechanical Engineering

As early as 1994, the comprehensive diamond tool program was expanded by the first machines from our own production, with the aim of being able to offer our customers a complete product range in the field of diamond technology.

In 2002, we took over Meissner Maschinenbau GmbH, a company located in Engelskirchen near Cologne, which has made a name for itself since 1979 as a competent manufacturer of high-quality machines for particularly difficult cutting and drilling tasks.


At the same time as we strengthened our positions in Germany and built up our manufacturing capacities, we permanently expanded our activities abroad.
As a result, our export share has grown rapidly to over 60% in the meantime, proving a worldwide acceptance of our products. With well over 30 agencies around the world, we are able to offer our foreign customers a sales as well as a service station near them almost everywhere.

New building near Berlin

Due to the constantly increasing export share as well as the limited possibilities for expansion at the existing locations, the decision was made in 2009 to build a new production plant and logistics center on a 20,000 m² site located directly on the A2 highway not far from Berlin. The new plant “Theessen”, named after the nearest town, was completed in 2011 and started production of diamond tools already in the same year. In order to keep production at the cutting edge of technology, almost all production equipment was purchased new for the new plant, including complete production lines for diamond wire and vacuum-brazed tools for special applications.

For the purpose of bundling production capacities and optimizing logistics routes, the operating sites in Gommern in 2012 and Lüneburg in 2017 were relocated to the new plant in Theessen and closed at the old sites.


The complete solution for the processing of concrete floors.

Seit 2013 dient das neue Werk auch als DRS-FLOOR Kompetenzzentrum, in dem unsere Kunden alle Informationen rund um unser Programm an Maschinen, Werkzeugen und Betonvergütungsmitteln für die Bodenbearbeitung bekommen können. Neben einer beeindruckenden Produktausstellung sind großzügige Flächen für die Tests und Vorführung von Maschinen und Werkzeugen vorhanden. Seit 2014 finden im Werk Theessen spezielle Bodenbearbeitungsseminare, DRS-FLOOR CAMP genannt, für unsere Kunden aus der ganzen Welt statt.

Production in Europe

Commitment to flexibility and quality.

In 2015, on the basis of a production of construction equipment existing in the Czech UNESCO town of Kromeriz for over 10 years, another production facility was established, which specializes exclusively in the production of machinery for the construction industry. Thanks to extensive investments in plant technology (including fully automatic welding robots, CNC processing machines, powder coating plant, etc.), numerous pieces of construction equipment are completely developed, designed and produced in-house at the Czech plant, from the first weld to final assembly, and delivered to customers worldwide. Thanks to flexible production and a large vertical range of manufacture, we are also able to offer OEM designs and customer-specific mechanical engineering solutions at any time. Our diamond tool design skills and experience help us design and build our machines to be user-friendly, safe and reliable.


The safety of our customers is important to us!

In addition to the production of diamond tools and machines, we are committed to the safety of the entire industry. Thus, we were among the initiators and founding members of oSa (Organization for the Safety of Abrasives) – a worldwide organization for the safety of abrasive tools.

Furthermore we are a member of the FEPA (Federation of European Producers of Abrasives), the VDMA (German Engineering Federation), of the VDS (Association of German Abrasive Manufacturers), the FBS (German Concrete Drilling and Sawing Association), the IACDS (International Association of Concrete Drillers & Sawers) as well as an active participant in many working groups dealing with safety issues.

This commitment allows us to always stay at the cutting edge of standardization, quality assurance and innovation in order to offer our customers not only high-quality, but above all safe products.


35 years Dr. Schulze

Thanks to our expertise, customer proximity and flexibility, we celebrated our 2019 35th anniversary as one of the leading European manufacturers of diamond tools and machines for construction, industry and natural stone processing with more than 100 employees at 3 own production sites (two in Germany and one in the Czech Republic), with a worldwide dealer network and the reputation of a competent partner for all questions in the field of diamond cutting technology.
