Why do we focus on sustainability as an injection-moulding company?

W.AG recognized years ago that sustainability is particularly relevant for a manufacturing company such as W.AG. The commitment towards sustainability forms the DNA of our company’s operations. As a company that has always made use of its vast in-house proficiencies at the facility in Geisa, we ensure sustainability is taken into account when selecting raw materials and suppliers. We recognize our responsibility towards all aspects regarding partners associated with the business.

Since 2018 we have been working towards acquiring sustainable case solutions. Our employees form the foundation for all previous and future modifications. We are aware that W.AG’s long-term success is secured, above all, as a result of addressing strategic issues, such as a sustainable product life cycle. Our employees regularly evaluate how we manufacture products regarding resource conservation without jeopardizing the familiar performance of our cases. Our company location in the Rhön, thus, actively contributes to the growth and continuous development of the region.
