About Us

A global company
with international reputation



Dictator have been providing operating solutions for industrial applications for over 80 years.

DICTATOR is a worldwide group of companies with the main emphasis in Europe. Our head office is in Neusäß near Augsburg in Germany. DICTATOR products are manufactured within our own facilities across Europe. Over the years our range of our products and services has expanded, often through the development of solutions to specific enquiries. From the outset, maintaining close links with our customers has been very important to us.


Here in the UK we specialise in the manufacture of bespoke gas springs and oil dampers. At a time when others are relying increasingly on overseas manufacture we have continued to invest heavily in our own manufacturing facilities. Our 'in-house' philosophy enables us to develop bespoke solutions and to offer rapid delivery on all orders.

Our self-sufficient manufacturing process keeps us in control from start to finish and allows us to set our own rigorous quality standards whilst providing maximum flexibility for our customers.

We offer the complete range of Dictator products, including door and gate closers, door checks and electromagnets.

Many of the products are available for immediate despatch from our manufacturing and warehouse facility in Lenham, which nestles beneath the scenic North Downs in Kent.

A range of our products are available to view for demonstration fitted to doors and gates within our own building.

Customer Service / Our Philosophy

We pride ourselves on offering excellent service to our customers, and on providing sensible, down to earth advice. We'll work alongside you to deliver the best solution possible for your application, whether that's providing a standard off the shelf product, or developing a bespoke solution for complex projects.

Manufacturing our own products has always been important to us and we will continue to invest in the latest equipment and systems, but above all we value the relationships that we form with our customers. We listen closely to our customers and work with them to deliver the answers to their problems - Dictator are all about providing solutions.
