In January 1992 the company was founded as HEFKO GmbH for trading in steel products and raw materials. Since 2006, a team of specialists in the Spare Parts business area has been taking care of global inquiries from navies and shipping companies for technical goods. We supply all parts for the maintenance and repair of marine vehicles – from simple LEDs to large ship propellers. Thanks to excellent relationships with numerous suppliers at home and abroad – and especially with manufacturers of components in naval shipbuilding – the company records above-average growth year after year.

At the beginning of 2010, the Products business area was founded under its managing director Dr.-Ing. Dieter Cohrs newly established, initially as a separate company; since October 2013 as a division of the merged HEFKO GmbH. Since then, we have been supplying a wide range of devices and components for air conditioning and refrigeration systems for installation on board merchant ships, passenger ships, yachts, naval vessels, offshore platforms and for special applications.

To manufacture our products, we rely on experienced and certified manufacturers who are among the leading companies in their industry.
In January 2019, the HAWKE Transit System representative was established in Germany. HAWKE Transit System is a Spanish manufacturer of packing systems that allow cables and pipes to pass through watertight and airtight bulkheads, decks and walls. The applications range from shipbuilding to industrial and building technology.

In 2024, the company will once again develop further: the previous managing partner Dr.-Ing. Dieter Cohrs will take over 100 percent of the shares in the company. In this context, HEFKO GmbH changed its name.

Since February 7, 2024, we have been supporting our customers and suppliers under the company name DICOH GmbH – with the usual quality and competence.
