Westermann & Co. was founded in 1867 as a family enterprise based in the Sauerland and looks back on a company history of more than 140 years.
The brand Wesco stands for metal manufacturing in the classical manner - a combination of excellent German quality, an exclusive design and high tech functionality. A long experience in manufacturing and high tech form a perfect unity giving Wesco products their unique design.
Soon after its establishment in 1867, the company specialised in the processing of metal plates for household goods and has since continuously extended the range of its products.
In the 1920s, Wesco introduced the "ash can" into its product range, after the war it launched its first "pedal bin".
Today, the range of household goods includes more than 50 waste bins in various designs. Some of these products are modelled on the historic precursors which have inspired the use of classic design elements in the development of modern products.
Wesco design is characterised by the company's long-standing experience with metal as working material. Because we are familiar with the material we work with, we are able to shape it in a new and exciting way.
