How it all began

Already since 1946, during his employment as a precision mechanic at the Leitz company in Wetzlar, Wilhelm Wagner, the founder of WIWA, worked after work in the unheated air-raid shelter and manufactured nozzles for crop protection sprayers.

In 1950, Wilhelm Wagner KG was officially founded. Orders for the production of nozzles and air motors for lubrication equipment followed on a contract basis. In 1958, the company began manufacturing its own lubrication equipment.

In the middle of the economic recession of 1967-1968, Wilhelm Wagner set the right course at the decisive moment when he presented the first paint spraying device "Airless 2000" in Munich in November 1967.

In 1970, a new building was erected in the Gewerbestraße in Lahnau-Waldgirmes, which, by the way, is still WIWA's company location today. In January 2007, a new production hall was also inaugurated there, which secures the production location Germany in the long term.
