WICKE: AN INNOVATIVE COMPANY WITH TRADITION
WICKE is a medium-sized group of companies rich in tradition. As a leading manufacturer of wheels, rollers, tires and system components, our particular core competence lies in the development, production and logistics of OEM-specific customer articles.
Globally networked, dynamic and flexible
In the interaction of our international production sites, our Chinese plant has primarily been responsible for the manufacture and delivery of large series for our global customers since 1994. Since 1995, our Czech plant has been producing high-quality castings and forgings, which are then used to create precision-fit system solutions at our German headquarters. Another specialty of our Eastern European site is the production of vulcanized elastic rubber wheels and fully assembled system components for heavy-duty applications. The particular strength of our main plant in Sprockhövel is the production of development-intensive OEM special solutions that are precisely adapted to their respective areas of application.
Certified management system
At all locations, WICKE employs excellently trained employees who work on the basis of certified quality management systems. Our manufacturing processes, raw materials and products are also continuously checked on the basis of this certified management system. The focus here is on the environmental compatibility, resource efficiency and health safety of both our work and our products.
Cosmopolitan, sustainable and socially responsible
Whether in China, the Czech Republic, at our German headquarters or at one of our sales locations: the heart of WICKEis our employees. In a peaceful and tolerant atmosphere, our employees from all over the world give their best every day and regularly take advantage of optimal training and development opportunities.
In addition, we are actively committed to environmental protection and sustainable economic activity. With the goal of annually reducing our CO2 emissions, we have already been able to reduce the annual CO-2 load by more than 1,000 tons at our site in Sprockhövel through our own combined heat and power plant.
