REPRESENTED BRANDS / WESCO
Westermann & Co. was founded in 1867 as a family enterprise based in the Sauerland and has celebrated its 140th anniversary in 2007.
Soon after its establishment in 1867, the company specialised in the processing of metal plates for
household goods and has since continuously extended the range of its products. In the 1920s, Wesco introduced the “ash can” into its product range, after the war it launched its first “pedal bin”.
Today, the range of household goods includes more than 50 waste bins in various designs. Some of these products are modelled on the historic precursors which have inspired the use of classic design elements in the development of modern products.
Wesco design is characterised by the company's long-standing experience with metal as working material. Because Wesco is familiar with the material it works with, it is able to shape it in a new and exciting way.
