A small blacksmith’s shop founded in 1930 by Hermann Heller is the origin of Weckenmann Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co. KG. In 1957 Paul Weckenmann transformed the craftsman's workshop of his father in law into a metal engineering workshop and a few years later started with the production of equipment for the precast concrete industry. From this base his sons Wolfgang and Hermann Weckenmann built up the company as it stands today.
" Peak performance for the international concrete industry. "
Today Weckenmann is a leading manufacturer and developer of plant systems for the manufacturing of two dimensional and structural precast concrete elements that are used in residential and industrial construction. Since its founding, the head office of the successful family business has been located in Dormettingen at the edge of the Swabian Alps. A sister company is situated in Staßfurt.
Production facilities with integrated construction, production, planning and controlling systems exist at both locations.
