About DORCO America

We are pleased to introduce you to our company DORCO CO., Inc. One of the world's most recognized manufacturer of disposable shavers and related products in the world. Because of DORCO's high standards and superior manufacturing know-how in the field of "soft shaving" technology, we initiated an American corporation in the San Diego-Tijuana area in February of 1995.

DORCO's main factory is located in the El Florido Industrial Park area in Tijuana, México. It has successfully applied one of the most progressive production management programs in the maquiladora system.

Our main products are fixed twin blade disposable shavers. Our 2006 projection is to produce 200 million shavers. We expect to increase this projection 30% annually through expansion of our current facility investments.

We offer three models of razors: the fixed twin blade, the twin blade with lub strip and the long handle type with lub strip, however, we will diversify in the future in order to respond to a wider range of our customers' needs.

Because of the high standards and quality of our product, we will be the best company in shaving for everyone across the entire American Continent.

Our #1 priority is customer satisfaction. We also enjoy a family-like work environment, and the production of the world's finest disposable shaver.
