WSD – Werkzeuge, Schrauben, Drehteile GmbH
From a small trading company to a leading supplier of die forming tools and machine parts in the metalworking industry
Founded in 1994, WSD, initially a purely trading company, in the course of its development became a supplier of tools for cold and hot forming of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, brass and other alloys in horizontal and vertical multi-station pressing machines. At the same time as the company was founded, a representative office was opened in Moscow.
The company’s origins can be traced back to a rented factory hall and an office container with just two employees. Due to the dynamic development, a former furniture warehouse in an industrial area in Gotha was acquired in 1998 and gradually rebuilt for the company’s own needs.
In the early 2000s, the need to create our own production facilities became obvious.
By 2006, we had established production facilities in Russia and a joint venture in India. In 2010, we began forming our own machine park in Gotha. Since then, WSD has been able to offer a complete range of cold and hot forming tools.
Today the Gotha location houses 2,000 square meters of modern production space, warehouse and office. We plan to double the area and have already taken the first step in this direction by purchasing the appropriate land plot.
Continuous investments in the company’s infrastructure to optimize all processes, such as logistics, digitalization and modern quality assurance, are the key to our competitiveness today and in the future.
