From local specialist to global player
The corporate history and tradition of the Wilo company goes back as far as 1872. Since then, the “Kupfer- und Messingwarenfabrik” (copper and brass goods factory) once established by Caspar Ludwig Opländer in Dortmund has gone from strength to strength. Today the Wilo Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pumps and pump systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning as well as water supply, sewage disposal and wastewater treatment. Moving with the times has always been the Wilo way. With a firm focus on the future, the company is heavily involved in research and development and increasingly markets itself as a system supplier rather than a manufacturer of individual products.
In the international pumps market, Wilo is synonymous with high-tech solutions. The company has over 7,000 employees in more than 60 subsidiaries all over the world. Together they turn visionary ideas into intelligent solutions that set benchmarks in the industry, without losing sight of the essential human factor. With true passion and anticipation of market needs, Wilo develops innovative, high-quality products designed to make life simpler and more efficient. We call it Pioneering for You.
