      We really strive to listen to you in order to suggest the machine that is the best fit for your operation. Whether it’s a stand-alone solution or a complete system, we can customize our machines to fit your specific application.


      The customer comes first. Every time. Always.

      While our customers come from many different settings - some from smaller shops, some from larger industrial sectors - their size-reduction requirements are often the same. They’re looking for a customized solution that won’t break the bank, but one that makes sense for the size of their operation and their workflow. We aim not only to provide a solution that will meet these requirements, but to exceed those expectations.

      WEIMA Timeline

      The important cornerstones of our company's history

      1980 – The beginning

      Visionary and entrepreneuer Peter Rössler founded the Weinsberger Maschinenfabrik (WEIMA) machine factory and manufactured one of the first industrial wood shredders for cabinetmakers and wood shops.


      1982 – Briquette presses

      In order to expand the machine portfolio, briquetting presses are produced soon afterwards in new production halls in the Ilsfeld industrial park. In addition, the Bavarian State Prize is awarded to WEIMA.


      1999 – Transatlantic expansion

      The decision was made to expand into North America in order to reach new markets. In Fort Mill, South Carolina, a sales center was established, complete with a center for final assembly and a technical service department.


      2003 – The family business

      WEIMA benefits from its multigenerational approach. Martin Friz became a managing partner and began working beside Peter Rössler.


      2006 – Second Production Center in Eastern Germany

      In this year, WEIMA transferred the main portion of shredder production to Annaburg in Saxony-Anhalt in order to meet the worldwide growing demand.


      2014 – Target market China

      WEIMA enters into a joint venture in north-eastern Yantai. Inside new production halls, machines are manufactured for the Chinese market exclusively.


      2018 – Portfolio extension | PÜHLER draining presses

      WEIMA acquires draining and compressing specialist PÜHLER, looking back on a successful 40 year-old company history in Germany. Hydraulically driven PÜHLER packaging presses, can presses, and draining presses add to WEIMA's compressing portfolio that consisted of high-end industrial briquette presses only before the acquisition.


      2018 – WEIMA campus expansion in Ilsfeld (Phase 1)

      The headquarters in Ilsfeld underwent an expansion and was extensively modernized. Four years prior to this, the company’s cafe area was opened, making it possible to serve meals to over 100 employees on-site. The technical department was also rebuilt, adding more warehouse capacity and assembly area as well.


      2019 – Target market India

      Shortly before the turn of the decade, WEIMA agrees on a joint venture in north-west India. The focus is on the expansion of the service commitment in the region.


      2020 – WEIMA campus expansion in Ilsfeld (Phase 2)

      In addition to the campus expansion of the administration buildings (Phase 2), WEIMA is expanding its capacities on a large scale for the repair of used machines and service work. With the production hall 4 further assembly areas are created. Furthermore, automated parts warehouses are being built and the control cabinet construction is being further modernized.
