Dilling, headquartered in Herning in central Jutland, was selected among 200 competitors as the best company with less than 1,000 employees.

Morten Dilling Bertelsen, Managing Director and owner of Dilling:

“This award is a great honor and we are proud to have won it. This proves our strategy, which focuses on sustainability and digitization. Our goal is happy customers. We only achieve this and the high quality because we work hard on our products together with our employees. Our company has existed for 103 years. It has been part of the Dilling family for four generations. Behind it are many years of hard work with ups and downs. We have reached a high point with this award as a successful company in Central Jutland. I am convinced that our success is also largely due to the fact that we have left an important part of our production in Denmark while we continue to expand in the foreign market.”

Strongest market is Germany

Dilling currently has its strongest market in Germany and is growing annually in the double-digit percentage range in other European countries. All items are only offered in online trading. The company relies on long-term partnerships in the supply chain and a special finishing technology in-house. For many years, there has been close cooperation with the Zwickauer Kammgarn (ZKS) high-tech spinning plant in Wilkau-Haßlau. Together they have constantly developed the premium qualities in wool and wool blends with a focus on sustainability and comfort. The lively technical exchange between the ZKS and Dilling continues to be the basis for stable, joint growth in the market.
