From model making to gauge, tool and plant construction
1964: Josef Weischer forms the company Weischer Model and Prototype Construction GmbH & Co. KG, initially strictly as a handicraft business. His customers are foundries. After a few years, Weischer expands his offerings to include tool construction and when his son Stephan Weischer joins the management in 1996, the company employs 25 employees.
With the entry of Stephan Weischer into management, the introduction of modern technology into the work processes begins. From then on, knowledge of material behaviour and competence in processing and craftsmanship can be planned and implemented with unprecedented precision. In the meantime, model construction has already given way to gauge and tool construction.
The customer base is changing from industrial to automotive customers. In addition, the company has been expanded to include the design and development department. The increased know-how in the field of automated production processes results from many years of cooperation, especially with the automotive industry.
Numerous innovative ideas from the Weischer forge are successfully implemented, so that plant construction has become an integral part of the range of services. The successes and the growing demand of customers in this area have quickly led to the expansion of capacities, with a new tool and production hall, and the number of employees has now increased to around 140.
