Attuned to the future
WSM is ready
Just in time for the anniversary year, the third generation change in the company management is in the offing. The young successors have gained important experience during their studies, at WSM and also in other companies. What challenges await them and in what kind of future will they and perhaps their children one day lead the tradition-conscious family business?
WSM deals intensively with the major megatrends of the future and develops appropriate solutions. Whether it is environmentally friendly mobility, globalisation, digitalisation or demographic change: WSM does not wait and see, but is already working on answers today in order to be one of the pioneers tomorrow – just as it has been doing over the past 60 years.
Innovations, new technologies
and sustainability are our driving forces.

WSM assumes responsibility
With ongoing projects
Continuity, quality, innovation and responsibility are the WSM values which run like a common thread through the entire history of the company. It is precisely these values that also form the basis of WSM's social commitment.
This is why the "Helping together" initiative was launched in the anniversary year. Within this framework, WSM supports national and international aid projects and provide long-term assistance. Suppliers, customers and employees are also able to play an active role via the "Helping together" platform.
"As a family-run business, we think in long-term dimensions but, thanks to our short decision-making channels, we can also react very quickly. It is precisely these strengths that many aid projects around the world need: a partner with staying power, who is flexible and quick to respond when it matters," explains Elisabeth Schenk.
The new projects in the anniversary year included, for example, the construction and operation of a well in Terego County, northern Uganda, together with the RICE (Rural Initiative for Community Empowerment West Nile) organisation. "The women of the village of Maraju have had to carry water for miles. This will change in the future.
This will not only improve the lives of the people there, they will also have more time to take care of important things like bringing up children or education, and they will be able to fundamentally expand their local agriculture," says Elisabeth Schenk.
With joy into the future

From the chicken coop in Morsbach to international customers and aid projects all over the world: WSM has come a long way in 60 years and continues its successful path responsibly.
We are looking forward to the future,
