We are a worldwide group of companies with the main emphasis in Europe. Our head office is in Neusäß near Augsburg in Germany. Our 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. You can learn more about Dictator Engineering on our International site.

Dictator in the UK

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.

We have a self-sufficient manufacturing process that 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.

Our Products

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.
