Everything has its time - and its history! Find out here how we became the company
that we are today.
2003 - Foundation of the company DAutec
The first stone for the company history was laid: on 15.08.2003 DAUtec was founded in Lübeck by Hans-Jörg Dau. As an assistant to the management in his father's company as well as a test and development engineer, the path to his own company in the aviation sector was paved.
2004 - BDO Founder Prize of the IHK Lübeck
DAUtec GmbH was awarded the BDO-Gründerpreis 2004 of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Lübeck for the idea, the concept and especially the presentation of the founder's idea.
2007 - Certification according to DIN EN 9100
We have been certified according to EN 9100 by the independent certification company TÜV SÜD. An essential cornerstone of our services was laid with an efficient quality management system, which is continuously updated, implemented and certified by us.
2011 - Commissioning of the environmental laboratory at the Lufthansa base in Hamburg
Lufthansa Technik and DAUtec have put a new environmental laboratory into operation. The environmental simulations in the TestCenter cover shock and vibration tests as well as temperature and humidity tests. The equipment also includes an autoclave.
2017 - Opening of another environmental laboratory at Lübeck Airport
The aerospace company Dautec is converting rented premises into a test laboratory. The company has already redesigned parts of existing halls and has opted for the Lübeck location.
2019 - Design of a centrifuge for the Umweltlabor Lübeck
A large centrifuge for the simulation of static accelerations, developed by Johann Metzger himself, now enriches the environmental laboratory in Lübeck.
It has been efficiently designed on the PC, all necessary components have been purchased and finally assembled and assembled piece by piece in the environmental laboratory in Lübeck.
Various aviation components can be tested to determine whether the components can withstand certain accelerations or the enormous stresses of an emergency landing.
