Who no longer strives to get better has ceased to be 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.
