Uncover and discover

Get in on the game and discover the company history of the Dürr Group in a different manner.

Full concentration

Find ten pairs of pictures among the cards lying face down. But be careful! There are no identical images. In our game, a photo from the past and a matching photo from the present form a pair. That means you don’t just need a good memory, but also an eye for detail. Focus on possible common features you discover in the images. These can be found, for example, in people, activities or objects. It is worthwhile to take a closer look!

Good preparation makes a difference
Get fit for the game and get to know the Dürr Group and its → history better.

How it works

Uncover two cards by clicking on any two card backs one after the other. If the two cards form a pair, you can not only be happy about your success, but also receive a little extra information. Subsequently, the pair of cards found remains face up. If the images do not match, both cards are automatically turned over again. Be sure to memorize the position of the cards, so you will be able to find the matching images faster. The game ends when all the matching card pairs are uncovered.

By the way: No failed attempts are counted, nor does the clock run against you. It is the fun that counts! Is the game too tricky for you? Then read the note at the bottom of the page.

It's a match!
The roots of the Dürr Group lie in Stuttgart’s district of Bad Cannstatt, where Paul Dürr founded a metal shop for roof flashing in 1896. The Swabian workshop has since become a global mechanical and plant engineering firm headquartered in Bietigheim-Bissingen.
It's a match!
Having laid the foundation for the Dürr Group in 1896, master tinsmith Paul Dürr was at the helm of his business for more than three decades. 125 years later, the company is a listed stock corporation and is headed by a man who also embodies consistency: Ralf W. Dieter has been CEO of Dürr AG since 2006.

Under the leadership of Heinz Dürr, the family business became a global ‘mid-sized multinational’. With his down-to-earth approach, the company founder’s grandson always seeks contact with the workforce. Even as Honorary Chairman of the Supervisory Board and principal shareholder, he still maintains close ties to the company and its employees.
It's a match!
In the 1920s, Paul Dürr bought the first company car: an old ‘Adler’, which was also used for driving lessons at the time. Many employees learned to drive in it. Of course, those who get into one of the vehicles of the Dürr Group’s fleet today will already have the required driving skills. However, they may also gain a new experience: their first drive in an electric car.
It's a match!
In the early years, Dürr’s entire workforce would easily fit in one picture. Those times are long gone. Today, with more than 16,000 employees in over 30 countries, only a fraction of the staff fit in a group photo.
It's a match!
After World War II, Dürr ventured into plant engineering. In 1950 the company delivered its first plant – a machine for the surface treating of disk wheels. Seven decades later, Dürr is one of the world's leading mechanical and plant engineering firms. The products offered by the Group’s three brands, Dürr, Schenck and HOMAG, are used not only in the automotive industry but also in sectors like woodworking, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and in electrical engineering and electronics.
It's a match!
Thanks to Paul Dürr’s love of modern technology the metal shop for roof flashing could be reached by telephone as early as the beginning of the 20th century – not a given back then. Nowadays, communication by phone is becoming increasingly rare. After all, Dürr moves with the times: Online chats and videoconferencing have become an integral part of the communication toolbox.
It's a match!
Dürr has a long tradition of technological innovations. In the field of application technology, the company has launched the EcoPaintJet robot painting system, a groundbreaking solution for avoiding overspray. A high-tech applicator ensures that the paint lands only on the intended surfaces when the body is painted. In 2020, Dürr received the German Innovation Award in the “Large Enterprises” category for the EcoPaintJet.
It's a match!
Dürr operates as a unified team, which is demonstrated by the employees and not just in the workplace. Even outside the office and the site, team spirit is of great importance. Whether kicking a football or shooting hoops – company sporting events have always been very popular.
It's a match!
Developing junior staff means investing in the future. From the very beginning, Dürr has followed this principle by attaching great importance to training young people. Back then, tinsmith apprentices were learning their trade on the roofs in the Stuttgart region. Then the company grew, and so did the training opportunities. In the anniversary year of 2021, the Dürr Group has around 400 apprentices and cooperative state university students in Germany alone.
Thanks for playing!
A lot has happened in the last 125 years. The small craft business has become a global corporation. But obviously, not everything has changed. Dürr would also like to maintain the balance between continuity and progress in the future.
