History of WRW

The company WRW is founded in Ahlen and registered a patent for its new production method.

We celebrate success with our first ETA-certified multilayer composite which allows us to use a CE marking on our pipes.

WRW requires more room to develop innovative solutions, provide services and do research. A new prodction area and an administration building are built.

Living up to our reputation as pioneers, WRW starts volume production of the first overlap-welded multilayer pipe using a laser technique.


High quality products and excellent services are recognised: The companies
quality management system becomes DIN EN ISO 9001-certified.


WRW expands to five machines running four shifts. We reach an annual production capacity of 45 to 50 million running metres. 65 employees are awarded the Town of Ahlens business prize 2012.

Plant expansion: A storehouse is erected right next to the production hall and the administrative building becomes and additional floor.

By setting up a sixth machine, WRW expands its production capacity. With our new two finishing machines, we can now offer our clients wrapping pipes with hoop and fastener or inserting tubes in protection pipes. WRW acquires property for the construction of a new storehouse. 80 employees.
