Windmöller und Hölscher KG (W&H)

Founded in 1869 today Windmöller & Hölscher is a world leader for the manufacturing of machinery and systems for the production of flexible packaging. Our product portfolio includes high-performance machinery for film extrusion, printing and converting. Our subsidiary Garant specializes in large sacks, paper bags and second hand machines. As a global company W&H offers its customers everything from a single source: from expert consultation and engineering to the delivery of high quality machines and complete packaging production lines. Approximately 3,100 employees create optimal solutions for the individual production tasks of flexible packaging producers – bringing the corporate philosophy “Passion for Innovation“ to life.

As a family business we have more than 5,000 customers in over 130 countries. Our customer’s concerns are what drives us to be innovative every day. Not all countries around the globe have a sophisticated waste reduction/circular economy program. We feel responsible to be part of a force that tackles waste reduction on a global level in order to make circular economy truly valuable for all of us.

As a family business, we take on responsibility and act sustainable: economically, ecologically and socially. We have made this promise in our mission statement, the DNA of our company. The positive characteristics of flexible packaging, such as its durability and performance, become a particular problem at the end of its life cycle. If disposed of improperly, flexible packaging contributes to the littering of oceans and landfills.
We are convinced that the flexible packaging of the future must follow a circular economy. With our knowledge and solutions, we contribute to the sustainable development of flexible packaging and hence make a global circular economy possible.
