The history of the company “Derkaliber” has begun not so long ago. During the internship, a young student met an engineer at one of the factories in Germany, whose life had been devoted to the creation of fittings. Despite the age difference and striking differences in experience, two people found a common idea – to create their own enterprise. Years later, after making a fortune, the talented businessman turned to his old friend-engineer with a proposal to combine resources and to do what both of them had long been thinking about – to organize their own production of valves.
The idea was a success and a company for the production of brass ball valves was registered in Riga. The company had features of everything that is so close to both of them – years of experience, German quality, Latvian ability to perform large volumes of work in a short period of time and continuous improvement. For the first time in Latvia, a private enterprise started producing professional engineering plumbing in accordance with international standards. Thus, the production of brass ball valves appeared. Since then nothing has been impossible for partners – enthusiasm and love for their work overcome all obstacles and the goal is clear – to create a product with the highest quality on the market of fittings.
The design of ball valves is not new and has been known for more than 100 years, however, it was necessary to put a lot of effort into achieving a product that would faithfully fulfil its main functions. It was no coincidence that the brand’s slogan – Perfektion der komplekttlosungen – was chosen, which in German means “Perfection of Complex Solutions”. This is a kind of tribute to the German influence on the original idea and inspiration for creating Derkaliber brass valves.
To create the most successful product, a team of enthusiastic experts focused on the design of two series of brass valves – Derkaliber Grand and Derkaliber Kraft.
All products of TM “Derkaliber” meet the requirements of the European norms and standards and are produced according to the procedure of the international standard ISO 9001:2000.
The quality and reliability of the Latvian products are confirmed by the excellent operational properties of the valves. Their body is made of high-strength brass CW617N. TM “Derkaliber” provides all its products with a 3-year warranty.
