Investments in a modern machinery in recent years and the continuous development of the technical know-how enables Weinz WEKA to deal with innovative manufacturing technologies which also meet high customer requirements with regard to complex tool designs. The course has been set for an optimistic future of the production site in Idar-Oberstein, that is important for the region, in order to be able to meet future challenges with new ideas and tool concepts.
