DENSO Group Germany Celebrates 100 Years of Invention and Experience

2022 is a special year for DENSO Group Germany: the Group is celebrating its 100-year anniversary.

Since it was founded on 14 November 1922, DENSO has evolved from a family company to an international group, with subsidiaries in six European countries and over 100 sales partners around the world. The history of the company can be traced back to a single idea from the 1920s – to use DENSO’s petrolatum-dipped gauze tape to protect the supply lines to Berlin’s gas lanterns. The creative solution of using DENSO®-Tape was revolutionary for its time – the invention was the world´s first reliable solution to protect pipelines against corrosion and marked the very beginning of the DENSO success story.
