From local specialist to global player
The corporate history and tradition of the Wilo company goes back as far as 1872. Since then, the “Kupfer- und Messingwarenfabrik” (copper and brass goods factory) once established by Caspar Ludwig Opländer in Dortmund has gone from strength to strength. Today the Wilo Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pumps and pump systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning as well as water supply, sewage disposal and wastewater treatment. Moving with the times has always been the Wilo way. With a firm focus on the future, the company is heavily involved in research and development and increasingly markets itself as a system supplier rather than a manufacturer of individual products.
In the international pumps market, Wilo is synonymous with high-tech solutions. The company has over 7,000 employees in more than 60 subsidiaries all over the world. Together they turn visionary ideas into intelligent solutions that set benchmarks in the industry, without losing sight of the essential human factor. With true passion and anticipation of market needs, Wilo develops innovative, high-quality products designed to make life simpler and more efficient. We call it Pioneering for You
WILO's success is supported by many pillars. And by values that we pursue without compromise. Wilo provides the technology and expertise for the operation and application of high-value pumps and pump systems for heating and cooling technology, air-conditioning, water supply and sewage disposal. The Wilo brand and all associated product brands under the Wilo umbrella set the standard for technical performance and efficiency. This is supported by an outstanding service offer in all European countries and increasingly in other countries, from Asia to North America.
Wilo has set itself the objective of growing profitably by creating customer added value. However, our demands go way beyond the simple fulfillment of customer requirements, because pump systems are of decisive importance for the primary needs of life and for conserving our environment for future generations. In addition, we aim to use the higher efficiency and lower life cycle costs of our products to achieve economic success for wholesalers, craftsmen, planners and, last but not least, the users of our systems.
With technical progress, requirements for the efficiency and reliability of systems for conveying fluids also continually grow. For this reason, Wilo is continuing to expand its application expertise and is increasingly applying it to adjacent market segments. We are deeply ingrained in the methods and principles of German engineering technology.
