What is Daan Tech?

Daan Tech is an industrial company which designs, produces, and markets innovative devices that respond to the challenges of the 21st century.

The first product created by Daan Tech was Bob the mini dishwasher– the smallest, fastest, and most advanced autonomous dishwasher.

Bob addresses two challenges facing our world: smaller average households and living spaces, and the lack of circular economies. It allows one and two-person households to have an efficient and durable dishwasher in their homes to save water and time, and it has been designed for a closed-circuit economy free from willful ignorance about the environment. 

Foundations of the company

Daan Tech was established in 2016 with the vision of creating household appliances and products that lower a household’s environmental footprint while being functional and elevating the market standard. 

Since Daan Tech has been incorporated it has cultivated deep know-how about mechanical design, plastic injection, hardware electronics, software development and product integration within its 2,500 sqm factory located in Vendée, France.

Its know-how stems from the experiences of a former leading home appliance factory located in Western France, which manufactured home appliances for decades and had 3000 employees at its height. 

Three key people allowed Daan Tech to grow:

  • Damian PY, a crazy engineer who initially wanted to create company in robotics, and who created Bob’s automatic magnetic door system.

  • Antoine FICHET, a marketing wizard who had the idea for Bob the mini dishwasher in 2009, which was at the time called “Rudy.” He met Damian in 2015 and together they finally launched Daan Tech in 2016.

  • Nicolas RAVALLEC, former industrial director of S20 Industries who joined Daan Tech in 2019 to bring dishwasher manufacturing back to France and manage the Daan Factory


Since its incorporation Daan Tech has grown thanks to the many talented individuals wanting to do meaningful things as their job. Today, they are continually developing Daan Tech in France and abroad, and contribute to its success. 



Though French-rooted, Daan Tech has the ambition of being a global company and exporting its solutions worldwide, as we understand no 21st century problem only applies to or can be resolved by one country. 

With this vision we hope to reinvigorate local industry and improve individual lives, households, and society as a whole. 

That’s how Daan Tech chose its motto:

‘Designing Meaningful Things’
