Founded in 1981 as Moorhouse Engineering in Bethesda, soon to become DMM and move to more suitable premises in Llanberis in 1986, the company celebrated 30 years of manufacturing in 2011. In 1981 the company employed just four people, and now almost forty years later we are an important employer in this area with just over 200 employees. From the very outset DMM has developed products in two main areas; recreational climbing and mountaineering has developed alongside products aimed more at the more industrial markets. Both areas compliment each other and the areas of overlap benefit both sides.
Innovation is key to DMM's development, and they have continually invested not just in the fabric of the factory, in plant, machinery, tooling etc but also in ambitious product development plans which can be very costly. DMM recognise that it’s not sufficient to stand still and copy, they need to lead the field in our specialist areas and over the years DMM have done just that and all from their base in North Wales.
