Dr. Martin Welp leaves Dörken






Dr. Martin Welp leaves Dörken


The Managing Director of Dörken Coatings worked for the company for more than 11 years and played a key role in shaping the Dörken brand.

Dr. Martin Welp, managing director of Dörken Coatings GmbH & Co. KG, Herdecke, has left the company for personal reasons. He worked very successfully for the Dörken brand for more than 11 years. On February 1st, 2010, the graduated chemist joined Dörken MKS-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG. Together with his management partner, Dr. Gerhard Reusmann, he has developed the company into the leading supplier of micro-layer corrosion protection systems  always driven by the incentive to offer the best possible corrosion protection for every industry with innovative technologies. In August 2020, he initially took over the management of CD Color GmbH & Co. KG and Protec® Systempasten GmbH. In the fall of the same year, he was appointed managing director of the newly founded Dörken Coatings, into which the Dörken MKS, CD-Color and Protec® companies were transferred. He paved the way for this new company with great commitment until the very end.

Dörken board Thorsten Koch will temporarily join the management of Dörken Coatings in order to continue the initiated strategy with the support of Dr. Gerhard Reusmann and to accompany the necessary next steps. For Dörken Coatings' customers, little will change in their daily cooperation under the new framework conditions. They will retain their usual contacts and can continue to rely on the company's expertise when it comes to corrosion and surface protection, decorative design and tinting technology.

"The management and employees of Dörken are saddened to lose Dr. Martin Welp, a real 'doer' who had a decisive influence on the company over so many years," said Thorsten Koch. "Together with the shareholders, we express our appreciation and special thanks to him and wish him all the best for his private and professional future."
