About Us

Dunkelman & Son Limited has a history of developing and manufacturing quality shoe care since 1946.   Originally renown for the manufacture of shoe trees, Dunkelman has expanded our range to incorporate the Dasco shoe care range of polish, creams, protectors and accessories, which has become known industry wide for its quality.

Our head office is based in the heart of the traditional home of shoe and boot manufacturing, Northamptonshire.   Dunkelman & Son has the enviable pleasure of working with a number of the world’s most highly respected footwear manufacturers. 

In February 2015 we became part of the Alma FRC group; a French, family-owned company with a similarly long tradition in shoe care.  The acquisition gives Dunkelman & Son the ability to offer the most comprehensive range of shoe care products and accessories in the world.

Our company ethos is to keep evolving, to bring exciting, new and innovative products to our customers and their consumers, whilst ensuring the quality and traditions that we have always been associated with.
