Risse+Wilke, “progress driven by tradition”: This is the way we are.
Keeping what’s good, leaving behind what’s obsolete: this is how we can describe our sense of tradition, which all of us in the company are pleased to uphold. At Risse + Wilke it is lasting values that matter. Values that have always been a feature of medium-sized industrial businesses: people, machines and steel. Not just any steel, but the highly technical advanced and high-value material cold-rolled steel strip.
This is the world of Risse + Wilke. And this is also the reason why the third generation manages the family company in line with the motto “progress driven by tradition. People and technology Innovation needs identification: it is on this basis that we at Risse + Wilke achieve high levels of customer satisfaction, high productivity and optimal quality. We are positioned excellently, both in terms of technology and people. It motivates us to work with high-quality equipment, such as modern reversing stands for quarto or multi-roll operations, a high-convection annealing technique, the latest continuous tempering furnaces, a wide-ranging spectrum of slitting and cut-to-length lines or a high-performance IT infrastructure based on SAP R/3. It promotes the enthusiasm, loyalty and dedication that come from enjoying high social standards, always being well-informed about operational processes and knowing that much is also done to keep colleagues healthy, too. Our pleasant working environment makes it worthwhile for us to identify with our tasks and really work in a team. Quality and service Knowledge, ability and experience come together to form expertise: this awareness shapes our working style. Every day we work to keep ourselves up to date and make processes come together even better so that we can optimize our products. We know just how good it is to have the right feeling and to contribute that “special something” to make optimal products and logistics solutions possible for our customers. We always keep an eye on the whole picture so that we can deal with each detail carefully.
