About Dehnco

For Over 40 Years...

Dehnco has always been about bridging the gap between efficiency and bottlenecks. Along with all the technology and automation, Dehnco uses ergonomics and design to create a more healthy, enjoyable environment where workers are part of the answer.

In 1976 our founder, Al Dehnert, had a vision: ahead of his time, he was able to identify inefficiencies & bottlenecks in warehouses. This led to the creation of Dehnco’s ergonomic, modular workstation solutions. Al’s solutions helped increase worker productivity, but more importantly, they protected the employees from harsh conditions that often exist in warehouses, what we consider a win-win. 

Today, Dehnco is still proud to be family owned and operated. We have grown to become the industry leader in providing ergonomic workstation solutions. But, we believe that our world is constantly changing. In an e-commerce driven environment, people want more things more often and more buying is leading to more packing and shipping. All of this comes at a human toll with warehouse employees taking on the stresses and strains of a pack and ship world. Dehnco is about bridging the gap between efficiency and discord. Along with technology and automation, Dehnco uses ergonomics and design to create a more healthy, enjoyable environment where workers are part of the answer.

We create solutions that feel better, flow better, and work better. 

Dehnco. Work Better.


Our Mission

Our world is changing.
More people want more things more often.
More buying is leading to more packing, more shipping. 
Consumerism is driving businesses forward, but discord is holding us back.

Ecommerce is now necessary to meet the growing demands 
Of people
Of businesses
Of the economy
...But it also comes at a human toll

Longer hours, aching backs, defective machines, inexhaustible orders.
These stresses disrupt the balance of the workplace,
Imbalance leads to less efficiency, less coordination, less fulfillment
Discord becomes seemingly inevitable 

Dehnco has always been about bridging the gap between efficiency and bottlenecks. 
Along with all the technology and automation, Dehnco uses ergonomics and design to create a more healthy, 
enjoyable environment where workers are part of the answer.
We create solutions that

Feel better
Flow better
Work better
