125 Years WILLBRANDT Gummitechnik
Our company is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. There has been an incredible number of movements and changes in the past 125 years, including in world politics. Therefore we are very glad that we have successfully passed all challenges of time and we are also looking back on our past with a little pride today.
It has been a long journey from our beginnings in the city centre of Hamburg as a specialised supplier for boat supplies to our current position as an internationally active group of companies with over 140 employees that is still family-owned and independent.
Five generations of entrepreneurs have pushed and forced the development of WILLBRANDT KG.
All past and present success would not have been possible without the outstanding teamwork of all our employees, some of them have been working for our company with motivation and competence for decades.
125 years are therefore not only an reason to celebrate, but also a very good opportunity to thank you for the good support you have given to us for many years.
We have already set the course for our further existence and our successful common journey into the future, but we still have many decisions to make. We would like to use this possibility to invite you on a brief journey through time with our company profile in which you can see everything that has happened with us in the past 125 years. We do not want to lose our sight of the future entirely, though!
The feedback from our customer survey was very positive in 2016.
Our customer survey was focused on general satisfaction, price performance ratio and the quality of our products.
The pleasant result encourages us to continue the path which we have already taken.
We would like to thank you and our employee for the extraordinary satisfactory survey results and look forward to your wishes and suggestions. The raffle of a small present - in the form of a football - for your participation resulted in a winner located in North Germany.
InnoTrans 2016 - Willbrandt on the World Fair for Railway Technology
InnoTrans made Berlin from September, 20th to 23rd 2016 to the global meeting point for the railway industry. On the open-air ground 127 vehicles were introduced more than 140,000 visitors from over 140 countries.
The Willbrandt booth in hall 9 was also the meeting point for many visitors.
Our maintenance free Cavoflex shock absorber made of metal were an eye catcher on the stand!
These are, for example, used in brake systems. Our optimized seals made of rubber and silicone found a lot of interest in addition to air springs and rubber-metal components.
It was a good, varied and exciting exhibition with many interesting discussions.
We are very excited about the following meetings and we look forward together with you to the Innotrans 2018 - glad again with you at our booth.
The SMM 2016 in hamburg was a great success for our company

More than 2,200 exhibitors welcomed in summer temperatures over 50,000 visitors and WILLBRANDT was part of it.
Our treadmill was the eye-catcher at our booth, which has led many new visitors to our stand. The Willbrandt Vibration Absorbing Pads (VAP's), which are used under treadmills and crosstrainer, have been developed specifically for use on cruise ships.
The many contacts and networking at SMM 2016 make us optimistic for the future. The direct access to our customers, the broad communication and the presentation of pioneering innovations guaranteed the visitors a sustainable stay in Hamburg.
