Philosophy

Philosophy

Family managed, innovative, dependable

WIKUS represents precision, quality and maximum performance. For over 60 years, we have been guaranteeing the highest-possible standards in the manufacture of our high-technology sawing tools by utilising the best materials, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and ongoing quality controls. And we will continue to improve for you.

Innovative power sets new trends

Due to our long-standing partnership relationships and our outstanding research and development facilities, we always have our eyes and ears on the market and incorporate customer requirements into our development processes. With our innovative strength, we continue to set new significant product and technology trends and are always one step ahead of the field. It is not for nothing that WIKUS was awarded the title of Hesse Champion 2018 in the field of process innovation.

Innovative solutions

We research and develop not only for but also with our customers to achieve the optimal bandsaw for every application case. At our STC (Sawing Technology Centre) in Spangenberg, the focus is always placed on finding solutions for innovative sawing tasks. Irrespective of whether this relates to optimising a product or launching a completely new product family, our development engineers are always committed with a lot of energy and know-how. Our sawing specialists have developed numerous product developments and had them patented. Made in Germany - made in Spangenberg is a philosophy which is lived every day here at WIKUS.

Top of the range quality, “Made in Germany”

Our passion is your product quality. State-of-the-art production facilities and excellent staff know-how make WIKUS one of the largest bandsaw manufacturers in Europe.
This is only feasible when we continue to consistently focus our efforts on research, development, innovation and quality in the future in order to secure and expand our competitiveness on the world markets.

We place great importance on quality assurance measures: Incoming goods controls, so-called 4-eye principles in the manufacturing process and, should something ever be subjected to a complaint, we always view this as an opportunity for improvement. It was not for nothing that WIKUS was the first bandsaw manufacturer to successfully complete the DIN ISO 9001 certification and be able to retain it ever since.

Consistently high quality

Our in-line production plants and systems, which are also unique in the world and have already won awards for their innovative strength, always ensure the reliable production of high-technology bandsaws at a premium level. We continuously invest in the additional, ongoing development of our plants, systems and machinery at our Spangenberg location.

Focusing on sustainability

We assume responsibility for a sustainable future for everyone. The principle of sustainability in relation to the protection of resources and nature is an integral part of our corporate philosophy. Environmentally friendly and environmentally sound production processes, economical use of raw materials, low water and energy consumption determine our thoughts and actions. We also pay close attention to environmental compatibility in energy-related structural activities e.g:

  • Heat recovery and heat supply is executed completely via secondary heat generated from compressors
  • Ventilation system via layered ventilation
  • Process cooling generation via inclusion of stream water and well water
  • Utilising energy-efficient light sources which always take daylight into account

Globally represented, locally active, always close to home

International networking is just as important to us as local solidarity. As a local Spangenberg family-managed business, we also assume community responsibility and support regional initiatives in the social, cultural and ecological fields. The promotion and training of younger people is the key to growth and prosperity in our community and society in general. We are also committed to the ARS NATURA Art Trail, the North Hesse Cultural Summer, the Grimm Heimat Nordhessen and many other non-profit associations and foundations in culture and sport.
