OUR COMPANY

Since 1858, Dohmen has been driven by the desire to get safe and effective treatments and cures to the people that need them most. As entrepreneurs, we’ve looked for new and better ways of doing this year after year.

Committed: We are dedicated and persistent.  We ask “How can I make it happen?”

Creative: We are inventive and imaginative. We ask “How can I do it better?”

Collaborative: We are cooperative and share our knowledge. We ask “How can we achieve success?”

Courageous: We’re willing to risk failure over inaction. We ask “how can I challenge myself”

This perspective defines us. How we act, how we do business, how we work with our clients and how we work with each other. They are the essence of what makes us successful. They are what set us apart.
