The Wuppermann Group

INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT AND EXPERT PROCESSING

For 145 years now, the name Wuppermann has stood for quality made of steel. Since its foundation in 1872, the family-owned company has steadily advanced to become what it is today: an innovative product developer and an expert in processing and finishing. The Wuppermann range extends from flat products, tubes, and sheet metal parts to integrated components and complex assemblies made of steel, stainless steel, and aluminium.

The Wuppermann Group in its present structure was formed in 1985 from the companies remaining in the family's possession following the sale of the rolling mill in Leverkusen. It is controlled by the holding company Wuppermann AG, based in Leverkusen, which is fully owned by the family. The group's business operations are divided into three business units: Flat & Tube Products, System Solutions and Service & Consulting. The group has 9 production sites, with a total workforce of 1,500 employees. In 2016, it posted revenue of € 522 million.

The name Wuppermann stands for quality made of steel – and this name includes engaged employees and versatile opportunities. Wuppermann customers are more than discerning. They demand uncompromising quality and total reliability as well as flexibility and fast service. Some already know exactly what they require, whereas others come to us for our professional planning, implementation and the expert consultation we provide on the way to a customized solution. And, for all of them, cost-effectiveness is a crucial consideration.

The Wuppermann employees are part of an owner-managed family company. This means transparent conditions, flat hierarchies, rapid decision-making, and lots of responsibility. Many of the leading technologies and processes utilized at Wuppermann are the product of in-house developments. And because our dedicated employees know their trade and are given scope to develop, there is every chance that our company will become even better in the future.

Whether on our huge production lines for strip steel or in toolmaking with its extremely fine tolerances, whether as a certified welder for products of the highest specification or as a specialist in production planning or logistics — nothing ever stands still in the world of work. Development is crucial: not only for our products and processes, but also, and especially, for our employees along with the qualifications and career opportunities open to them.

Wuppermann has a long and proud tradition — a tradition to which we remain firmly committed. At the same time, a look to the future reveals new challenges, products, customers, and markets. Now that's exactly the right perspective for people who enjoy seizing opportunities.
