Our Company’s History
Druckguss Westfalen was founded in 1964 by Dr. Ing. Georg Weddige and the engineer Konrad Lehmkühler in the district Störmede /Geseke, with the objective of developing forward-looking pressure die-casting. In these early days the castings were made of zinc and then later in aluminium. Today, production of aluminium parts is our core business.
Due to market requirements our expertise has been extended to offer product finishing, shape cutting, mechanical and galvanized surface finishing (zinc and aluminium) components.
