40 years of history
The history of Dumek started back in 1979 when engineer Luigi Pizzirani met a gifted Milanese chemistry professor who invited him to work on designing a turbo-emulsifier for use in a university research laboratory.
As a result, Pizzirani constructed the first two prototypes which were delivered for testing. This heralded the launch of Dumek, which promptly received its first orders: more than 30 machines in the first year alone.
In response to the continuous demand for machines with increasingly high-tech performance and the ability to handle high-volume workloads, by 1985 Dumek was producing and selling a range of 12 turbo-emulsifiers: from small machines with a 5-litre capacity for laboratory use, up to 2000-litre versions for industrial production.
From 1986-1989, Dumek consolidated its presence in the mixer sector and embarked on a major industrial plan. New ideas and the acquisition of electronic technologies enabled the company to obtain its first patent for an application designed for the automated control of machine work cycles and the storage and reproduction of formulae or ‘recipes’, a field in which Dumek has always been a trailblazer.
Today Dumek is highly specialised in the sector of cosmetic processing machinery, with over 3000 operational items. In 2017 it became part of the Group’s beauty division.
