OPPENAU

Founded in the Black Forest in 1878, you will now find DOLL Fahrzeugbau on the road the world over. We provide technically superior vehicles for discerning markets in the timber transport, heavy haulage, ground support equipment and public authority business sectors. We know where we come from, where we stand and where we want to go.

It would be hard to imagine Oppenau in the Black Forest without DOLL. The company is an invaluable employer and an enrichment for the region. This is where the parent plant is located and where the engineers who undertake research and development for our vehicles work. The specialists who help us to ensure the quality of our products also come from here. This is also where we train our young employees who will shape the company and our products for the long term. We are pleased to impress you with our expertise and know-how.

AMERICA

Our second subsidiary was launched under the slogan 'DOLL goes AMERICA' in mid-2016.
The opportunities open to DOLL as a global-leading manufacturer of catering vehicles led DOLL to investing in its own manufacturing facility in the US.  The aim was to unite Black Forest know-how with American expertise. The DOLL AMERICA team thus consisted of German and American specialists who together focused on our American clients' needs and requirements while also offering an improved, more direct service to our clients.

MILDENAU

We manufacture to high German standards of quality, not only in our parent plant in Oppenau but also in our subsidiaries. DOLL Sachsen came into operation in Mildenau, Saxony, in 2009. Forty-five employees currently work at this production location.

The company produces a proportion of our semi-trailers and superstructures for timber transport and heavy haulage and special vehicles. Engineering in Oppenau, clearly defined processes, close coordination and quality controls enable us to ensure the DOLL quality standard in Mildenau too.

2016

Dr Michael Haas has been responsible as Managing Director for Sales, Marketing and Service at DOLL since April 2016. Markus Ehl completed the management team as CEO in November.

Subsidiary DOLL AMERICA INC. founded in Bridgeport, New Jersey. The location specialises in assembling vehicles for the catering sector for airport aprons.

2014

The company is forced to file for insolvency in 2014 and is taken over by investment group CMP in September the same year. DOLL starts trading as a limited liability company (GmbH) once more, under the leadership of Mark Toschek.

2009

The next major extension is completed in spring 2009. A new 7,200 m² industrial unit houses parts manufacture, offices and recreational rooms.

2009

2009 sees DOLL opening a new production facility when DOLL Sachsen GmbH goes into operation in Mildenau, where part of the DOLL product portfolio is manufactured.

2008

2008 marks another major milestone in the company's history, now stretching over 130 years: DOLL Fahrzeugbau GmbH changes its legal status to become DOLL Fahrzeugbau AG, a non-listed family public limited company.

1999

Brunhilde Rauscher-Doll, the company founder's great-granddaughter, joins the executive management in 1999. In 2003, Dr Manfred Münch becomes part of the executive management. The Oppenau location is expanded:
a new final assembly workshop is inaugurated in 2006.

1985

The company continually expands its product portfolio for special-purpose vehicles during the seventies, eighties and nineties. In 1985, the various activities are divided into the three operational divisions Timber Transport, Heavy Haulage and Mobile Systems.

1978

The company's 100 years of existence is celebrated with all DOLL employees, clients and suppliers in 1978. Appreciation is also shown for the importance of employees for the company's well-being.

1948

Emil, Heinrich and Friedrich Doll join company management in 1948, the third generation of the family to do so. The company grows steadily under their leadership and starts exporting timber transport vehicles to Africa in the 1950s. These export activities form the basis for today's global network of partners and service workshops.

1910

In 1910, Emil Doll takes over the company, the second generation of the family to do so. As motorisation gains apace in the 1920s, he recognises the signs of a new age and produces superstructures and trailers for the newly developed motorised commercial vehicles.

1878

When Johann Georg Doll founded a cartwright business in Oppenau in 1878, he could never have imagined that it would grow into a company and high-tech specialist which sells its vehicles all over the world.

When the 'Doll coach works' was founded in 1878, it first produced coaches and carriages of all types and forestry tools such as axes and slashers.
