Introduction to Wefapress

Wefapress Beck + Co. GmbH is a manufacturer of ultra-high-molecular (PE-UHMW) and high-molecular (PE-HMW) polyethylene. Our highly-qualified personnel process all of our thermoplastic materials in-house, according to your requirements. In 1955, Wefapress became the first company in the world to manufacture and process PE-UHMW using a sintering press machine. Today, our range of products includes everything from panels, chain guides and steel C profiles to individual drawing parts made from plastic.


The history of Wefapress Beck + Co GmbH dates back to 1895. This is the year that three ancestors of the current owners founded the pick device factory 'Westfalia'. In the fifties, 'Wefa' succeeded in making pick devices from plastic rather than from raw materials - a worldwide innovation and the essential foundation for our company's success in plastic manufacturing.

 

Our company premises currently spans some 31,000 m², with a production area of 20,000 m² and a warehouse for semi-finished parts covering 2,000 m². Our pressing equipment, which is continuously being updated, and our adjoining machinery plant, the only plant of its kind within the industry, help us ensure the highest possible product quality.
