In the beginning there is always…an idea

In 1970 it was an ingenious product idea that led to the impulse to found WMV: a moveable centrifuge basket. Alois Müller started the company together with Lothar Weininger and Bernhard Vick. A converted barn in Siegburg-Seligenthal was their first company headquarter. Already in 1971 the company moved on to Windeck-Schladern.

From there, the first De-oiling and Drying Plant was delivered to Italy. WMV and its cleaning and coating technology fastly became an eye-catcher and long runner in the market. The consequence of the Plant technologies consistently tailored to customer requirements: a steady increase in incoming orders. The company grew, so that in summer 1980 their new homebase in Windeck Maueler Feld could be moved into.

Operating Cost Management | Switching electricity contracts

Generation next

In 1992 with Martin Müller the second generation joined and perpetuates the company. His personal mission: strategic orientation on the worldwide markets. Subsidiaries in the USA and Asia followed. Today WMV is represented worldwide.

With the diversification, the company’s internal development continued: In 2008, the company Inspad (metal processing) was founded and in 2014, the company mtam (machining) was founded and affiliated to the company. Today, both supply WMV as suppliers and work in parallel for their own customers. A smart strategic move that has made WMV what it is today: a true global player, based in Windeck.

Yesterday, today, tomorrow.

And the day after tomorrow.

Today WMV is a plant manufacturer of complex cleaning and coating systems whose know-how is in demand worldwide. No matter whether it is about coating systems or the de-oiling, washing and drying of bulk parts: WMV always thinks outside the box bringing about surprising, future-oriented, innovative and reliable working technologies. Over 100 employees work hand in hand under one roof in terms of development, design, programming and production.

Combining special forces – to super forces.
We believe in the power of good ideas -. and in the inspiring force of cosmopolitan cooperation. A modern technical centre and the B7 campus as a “thinking and development panel” represents the WMV spirit. Since November 2019 WMV has become part of the Innovation Hub Bergisches RheinLand. We are looking forward to shaping the future together with our employees, customers and suppliers – and to reporting on it soon.
