As a company which is deeply rooted in South Tyrol, we set great store on top-quality raw material and short distances: Almost all of the materials that we use are sourced from Europe, and our products are manufactured entirely in Bressanone. Regional manufacturing strengthens the local economy and creates transparency. Through strict monitoring of our purchases, we are in a position to guarantee adherence to EU standards and norms throughout our entire value chain.
Manufacturing to order allows us to calculate raw material consumption with the greatest of precision, and keep our waste residue to a minimum. For us at duka, the use of recyclable materials or materials which can be collected in specialised facilities and disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner is of the greatest importance. This means that we use, for example, untreated polystyrene to package our shower enclosures, which are steam-heated to expand the granules, hence its appellation of EPS – Expanded Polystyrene. The finished moulded components consist of around 98% air and 2% foam, and do not contain flame retardants or similar additives.
