The name Westag & Getalit stands for a long-established and successful company that has been making its mark for more than a century. Our creative and motivated employees, high-tech production, deliberately sustainable operations and highly efficient logistics make us one of the leading European manufacturers of wood-based products.
Our history — the key to success
The most important facts and figures
Founded in 1901
The origins of our company date far back. On 7 December 1901, Joseph Ellendorff established a furniture factory that would later become Westag & Getalit AG.
We are a forward-looking company that believes in first-class training for new employees in every department. We currently employ 61 trainees.
Sales in 59 countries
Our sales activities are focused on Europe. Much of this business is concentrated in Western Europe, although Eastern Europe is becoming increasingly important. Naturally, we also distribute our products worldwide.
€233.0 million in turnover
In the business year 2016, we generated revenue of €233.0 million and thus continued the successful course of years past.
More than 1,300 employees
Westag & Getalit has a workforce of over 1,300 employees. These men and women have been with the company an average of 18 years; they live according to its philosophy and simultaneously help articulate that philosophy.
Because of the growing variety of our high-quality products and the expansion of our product line in the segment Surfaces/Elements, we have been manufacturing at two locations since 1976: in Rheda-Wiedenbrück and in Wadersloh.
