We trust in generations
More than one hundred years ago, the foundation was laid for the successful development of our group of companies. The expansion of existing activities together with the addition of new fields of business have been a major feature in the history of the Wietersdorfer. We are aware that the younger generation is the link between today and tomorrow. It is young people who are the symbol of our striving to shape the world and to grow. It is they, too, who are a guarantor for preserving both stability and trust.
