At Döttling, the term "handcraft" is taken literally, for they still work quite literally by hand. When the passion of the restorers, goldsmiths, locksmiths, saddlers, painters, and security specialists coalesces with the requirements and preferences of clients, an individual masterpiece is created that captivates generations due to its functionalism and beauty.
Before each masterpiece of engineering art is created, thorough planning is first required. Döttling has technological and planning expertise going back four generations, which - together with client preferences - flows into development, resulting in singular pieces.
Döttling have been working in the tradition of classical German locksmith artisanry since 1919. Even today, each and every piece passes through the nearly 100-year-old gates of the Döttling manufactory in Maichingen.
