Service, quality and innovation are in our genes.
When Johann Peter Waskönig founded his company for the manufacture of hat wires back in 1873, he could not have known that it would one day become one of the most successful producers of quality cables for professional use.
However, what he did know back then was just how important quality, service and innovation are for the corporate success. Thus, as a logical step forward, he started manufacturing dynamo wires in 1920 – and this laid yet another milestone for the company’s success story, which has continued to this very day.
In the meantime, the family-owned business Waskönig+Walter is run by the fifth generation. The great-great grandchildren of the founder, Michael and Jörg Waskönig, as well as Stefan Nestler and our staff, consisting of approximately 550 employees, stand for first-class products and ideas.
