As part of the restructuring and privatisation of the electric motor factory in Oschersleben, considerations were made in early 1992 to suspend internal maintenance and repairs. The head of the Repairs Department at the time, master engineer Matthias Wehling, saw it as an opportunity to found his own company, in order to cover a newly emerging market. On 1 October, 1992, the time had come: with three remaining employees of the repair and maintenance service for industry and trades (REWA), he moved into the former carpentry workshop of the liquidated VEB Eltma.
The range of services was initially limited to maintenance and repairs of machines and equipment for regional industrial customers and individual craft businesses, such as bakeries and butcher's shops. A move into the old production halls at the same location soon followed. Here, with a solid basic set of tooling machines, there was also space to be able to manufacture hard-to-obtain replacement parts. Long production downtimes at our customers were now history, and thanks to a 24-hour service, Wehling became known as a dependable partner beyond district borders.
In the following years, the scope of services was expanded substantially by taking on more products and activities. The emphasis was now on developing and implementing customer-specific production processes. This prompted the name change to Wehling Anlagen- und Maschinenbau GmbH, an increase in personnel, moving the head office to its current location and the gradual introduction of a design department.
As a result, our regional base grew to include a number of customers and partners throughout Germany. We now have 23 employees after starting out with three staff members in 1992.
Our excellent machine park with conventional and CNC-controlled tooling machines, including state-of-the-art plasma cutting technology, allows us to manufacture customised solutions of the highest quality and at a favourable cost-performance ratio.
The high level of training of our employees enables us to react quickly to your special requests and to support you in scheduling, project planning and implementation according to your requirements, or to relieve you of this work.
The acquisition of a production hall in Oschersleben's industrial park made it possible to design, manufacture and assemble larger, more extensive and complex plants in the field of robotics and automation.
