WMW

The company WMW is part of the STARRAG Corporation. It develops and exports machining centres, particularly to the Indian market.

The History of WMW

In the GDR, the company WMW was a state-owned enterprise called “VVB Werkzeugmaschinen und Werkzeuge”, which was responsible for the development and construction of machine tools. One part of this partnership was the Fritz Heckert VEB combined machine tool, which got its name form the SPD politician, Fritz Heckert. This lead to the company to quickly gaining a good international reputation. A large part of their production went to the countries of the former Soviet Union, where it received a lot of orders for exports. Therefore, the company WMW’s products were also a good way for them to receive foreign money. The company went into liquidation in 1990, following the fall of the wall in 1989. This new company operated under the same name and still specialised on selling and repairing used WMW machines. Since WMW still had a good reputation, these operations were very successful. At the same time, Heckert Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH was founded, which helped the WMW machines develop further. In 1998, the Swiss corporation STARRAG took over the Heckert Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH and the WMW logo. Both names still exist within this group until today.

Products

In the domestic market, WMW only offers used machines. Their production is now only concerned with the restoration and maintenance of written-off machines. New machines under the WMW logo are only produced for the Indian market. Their product portfolio mainly consists of CNC machining centres, which are available from STARRAG under the name “WMW 4-axle-centres”.

The Company in Numbers

WMW is currently one of the main providers of industrial machinery in the world. Its tools can be used by craftsmen as well as by big companies. WMW was created in the 70' and had the monopoly of the industry during the 80' with WMW East.
