DGC has since the date it was founded in 1910 over the past 110-years been a professionally managed family-owned business. The company has evolved over the past century from its solid reputation as a leading furnace and industrial services company, providing high added value solutions, mainly in the following sectors: mining & metallurgy, glass, mineral processing and manufacturing industries.
DGC's vision is to be a leading asset integrity management and industrial solutions company. We focus on helping our large industrial customers optimising their maintenance costs and improving plant performance, by providing innovative solutions together with our market leading technologies to enhance the service life of their operating assets.
DGC STRATEGIC DIRECTION
DGC has the ambition to build a sustainable diversified industrial group. We have therefore moved away from the cyclical nature of our project related activities and developed our business model to focus on providing services for industry and building a strong international presence. DGC's key markets include Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, Russia and other CIS Countries.
The company's vision is to be recognised as the global leading asset integrity management and industrial solutions company, based on providing innovative solutions and market leading technologies, while continuing our leadership in selected geographic regions.
We strive to be customer centric and show our customers how the development of our products, services and solutions portfolio, our geographic presence and our daily performance help to improve our response to their requirements, while applying an operational excellence approach.
DGC STRATEGIC ORIENTATION
DGC is a solid group, primarily because we have managed to generate diversified and recurring revenues. This forms the reliable foundation that we wanted for our continued development, in order to satisfy our customers and shareholders as well as to reassure our employees. This was made possible by three factors:
International presence particularly in key markets including sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, Russia and other CIS Counties,
A balanced sales mix spread over different business sectors,
And, in terms of services, the deliberate choice to position ourselves within the next five years to derive a significant part of our turnover by recurrent multidisciplinary asset integrity management contracts, providing us with the resilience required to maintain the stability of our activities in the medium and long term.
Furthermore, we are consolidating our multi-disciplinary leading position in the industry by developing synergies between our various subsidiaries, including our furnace and industrial services, asset integrity management, industrial products and solutions. This results in cost savings and organic growth through joint actions between our subsidiaries, creating maximum value for our customers.
