Dover owns and operates a portfolio (conglomerate) of more than 40 companies. DOV is organized into four divisions: Energy (21% of Revenues), Engineered Systems (34%), Fluids (20%), and Refrigeration and Food Equipment (25%).

DOV has a dual strategy of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. The company strives to have each of its companies number one or number two in its business. Then they use their global scale, operational agility, and bundled technologies in a manner that competitors find hard to replicate (moat).

SWOT Analysis


Product innovation and customer relationships is where Dover shines. Diversification in businesses and geography provide some stability. High quality products and low cost producer.


Dover does business in cyclical markets that can produce some volatility in revenues and profits. High exposure to international markets and falling oil prices add to the uncertainty.


Dover uses acquisitions of smaller companies to quickly move into markets that have synergy with their current organization. Expansion of manufacturing in lower cost regions help profit margins.


Low oil prices are putting pressure on their energy division. As with all global companies, the current trend of a strengthening dollar puts downward pressure on earnings.
