DK Holdings Limited proudly celebrates 65th Anniversary


DK Holdings Limited, ISO-certified manufacturer of Precision Diamond Tooling is celebrating its 65th Anniversary today, 24th April 2024 – a milestone the company’s Chairman, Brian Salter, and the entire team are immensely thrilled with.

“I am extremely proud of our achievements over the past 65 years”, Brian Salter told the team in an interview to reflect on how it all began, how it is going and what the future holds in store.

“It all started in Marden, just a few miles from where we are now. John (known as Jack) Dawkins, a true entrepreneur, set out to produce electroplated diamond/CBN coated cutting tools principally for the Engineering sector.”, Brian explains.

The company continued going from strength to strength, moving to its premises in Station Approach, Staplehurst, expanding over the years to meet increased customer demand.

Weathering many challenges over the past 65 years, Brian credits a number of factors for the company’s continued success: “I must start with our greatest asset; our staff. A talented, creative and flexible team that has been willing and able to rise and adapt to all the challenges we have faced over the past six decades. Secondly, our longstanding relationships with customers and suppliers with shared values of honesty, decency and respect, build trust and goodwill.”

There is much in store for the company with several initiatives in the pipeline and as Brian concludes, “I look forward to the future with excitement”.
