A company portrait of WSW Wälzlager Wolfgang Streich GmbH und Co. KG

With us into the future

How it all started

When the company's founder Wolfgang Streich served the first customers in 1982, the goods were stored in the garage at home.

Hard to imagine when you look at today's company property at the Ravensberger Bleiche in Bielefeld. The factory premises today cover 16,000 square meters.

20 employees work in the 890 sqm office complex. The adjacent warehouse offers 2,800 square meters of storage space. 10 employees work here with the entire logistical handling of the warehouse management, as well as 6 employees in production.

The well-rehearsed team always ensures optimal processes and high process reliability.

Highest quality through in-house production

WSW's products are particularly valued by customers in terms of their high quality and reliability. For applications in particularly sensitive areas, test procedures are carried out in coordination with the customer in order to verify product suitability. WSW has had its own production facilities since 2016 in order to be able to react more independently, faster and more efficiently to the special needs of our customers.

Securing the future

Further development through investments, that was clear to Wolfgang Streich when it was certain that his son Robert would join the company after completing his master's degree. He has been a member of the management team since 2016 and they share responsibility for the company. For the senior boss, it is important that the WSW company remains a traditionally run family business and that it is run in its spirit - even after he has left the company - and that the high reputation it has acquired among customers and suppliers is maintained.
