From concept to global delivery

At deSter we combine a wealth of in-depth knowledge and industry experience with a passion for trends and technological innovation in order to deliver on any challenge. Together with our customers we go for a thorough understanding of their market, operations and desired customer experience.

It’s our mission to offer our customers more than just products. Through collaboration we strive to achieve a profound and lasting creative partnership, tailoring products into the exact image our clients envisioned. In order to maintain strong and personal relationships with all of our customers, our team of designers, engineers and account managers travels to all corners of the world. This gives doing business with deSter a different perspective, transcending “Business as usual”. We like to keep things up-close and personal.

 

Our approach

Always aiming to find the perfect balance between look and feel, cost, functionality and environmental impact, we strive to translate a well-defined concept into real products meeting the best possible quality standards. Due to our in-house design and production capabilities, we’re able to provide a flexible, customer centric, one-stop-shop service from concept to end product and everything in between. Our design approach is based on four key phases of work, each with a specific set of activities and deliverables.

Manufacturing experience

deSter has over 40 years of experience in designing and manufacturing thermoformed and injection moulded quality products for the aviation, food service and hospitality industry. This knowledge and experience is something that we gladly share with our clients and it is this aspect which substantiates our claim to bring “added value” to our business relationships.

Contingency & quality assurence

Our global sourcing & procurement team works 24/7 to optimise cost efficiencies for our customers. Next to our own production facilities, deSter collaborates with a select group of trusted production partners around the world. These partners are meticulously chosen and continuously evaluated in order to meet the highest standards on product, delivery, contingency, service and corporate values.

Global delivery

Once a product, or an interconnected range of products, is perfected, our services department takes over the logistics of production, packaging and product delivery. Using our network of manufacturing sites and warehouses located strategically around the globe, adds to our effectiveness in providing a premium service to customers in all areas of the world. Worldwide, deSter has three state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, in addition to multiple sales offices and distribution centres, serving customers around the globe. Our vision is to promote local production, not only to reduce the total cost of ownership, but as a whole, to make a positive contribution to the environment and the local economy.
