The year 2023 is special for our family business. This year, we are celebrating the WEPA Group’s 75th anniversary
Since our founding in 1948, we have achieved a great deal as a company and played a decisive role in shaping the hygiene paper market. We will do so in the future as well – in a responsible and forward-looking manner. Our first 75 years of success is the ideal basis for this. Our entrepreneurial thinking and action, our corporate culture, our focus on the most sustainable hygiene solutions for our international customers and, not least, our strong WEPA team have all had an essential part in this success story. In the future, too, this will be the foundation upon which we make WEPA the most sustainable, agile and favoured partner for personal and professional hygiene solutions. Over the past decades, we have driven forward a wide range of changes while always remaining true to ourselves: as a value-, team- and future-oriented, multi-generational family business in which respect, dedication and sustainability lie at the heart of everything we do.
We look back on 75 years of steady company development – and we are proud of what we have achieved. At the same time, this motivates us to shape our future successfully as well – together with our 4,000 employees, our valued business and cooperation partners and our company’s many friends. Because of your dedication and loyalty, WEPA is among the three largest European hygiene paper manufacturers today and leads the market in the production of hygiene paper from recycled fibre. With our sustainable products, we make an important contribution to safe hygiene and to the well-being of millions of people across Europe, and will continue to do so in the future – in the spirit of our declared purpose ‘Together for a better life’.
On the occasion of our 75th anniversary, together with you, we want to celebrate our successful development as a family business – from our beginnings as a trading company to the internationally active Group with 13 production sites that we are today. We’re looking forward to the next 75 years!
