Our origins

Even in 1885 – 10 years before the company was founded – the Murjahn family, originally a merchant family from Hamburg, acquired mining rights in the Odenwald. The mineral amphibole was found and used to produce the first painting and plastering powder "Amphibolin" in a new process. Today, over 125 years later DAW SE is one of the most renowned companies in the field in Europe. Even today DAW SE is an owner-operated family company – now in its fifth generation.
