WIESAUPLAST will becomes part of the globally active SCHERDELGroup from January 1st, 2022.

With this takeover, SCHERDEL is intensifying its activities in in the field of plastics/plastics-metal, which it started in 2006. WIESAUPLAST will benefit from the international positioning, the existing market access and the innovative strength of the SCHERDEL Group.

Information about the SCHERDEL Group:

The SCHERDELGruppe is a family company with more than 130 years of tradition in the fourth generation. Since its foundation, the company has been headquartered in Marktredwitz in Upper Franconia.

In addition to the technological complementarity, the regional proximity between the SCHERDEL headquarters in Marktredwitz and the WIESAUPLAST plant in Wiesau, as well as in Mexico, where the WIESAUPLAST plant is only 2.5 hours away from the SCHERDEL site in Silao, was also a favourable factor.

The new alliance of technologies is consciously expressed both by the change of name from WIESAUPLAST to SCHERDELWiesauplast and by the new logo of the company, which includes both SCHERDEL and WIESAUPLAST.

Within the SCHERDEL Group, SCHERDELWiesauplast will act as a plastics technology center and lead plant.

The existing customers and the current parts portfolio of WIESAUPLAST will be further consolidated and expanded with the new possibilities through belonging to the SCHERDEL Group.

The management of SCHERDELWiesauplast will in future be taken over by Wolfgang Beer as Managing Director. Mr. Beer was previously in charge of the strategy project Plastics-Metal in the SCHERDELGroup and had previously worked for 30 years at WIESAUPLAST and the Dr. Schneider Group in Kronach in various management positions.

Mr. Ammer, the previous managing director of WIESAUPLAST, will retire at the end of the year with the transition to SCHERDEL.

We are convinced that both our mutual customers, SCHERDEL's own customers and WIESAUPLAST's own customers will benefit from this alliance of technologies and that we will thus create the best conditions for both companies to meet the challenges in the course of the transformation.

In the future, we will be able to offer our customers an even better service worldwide in the field of plastics / plastics - metal, both in series production, but also already in the prototype phase in terms of expertise, technologies and speed.

Due to the proximity, the plants in Wiesau and Marktredwitz, as well as San Iturbide and Silao in Mexico, can complement each other excellently and develop synergies. The new alliance of technologies creates highly interesting and future-oriented jobs. Training is an important part of the philosophy.

What our employees say about us


“After my industrial management assistant course of studies, it was clear to me that this would merely be the starting point for my career at Wiesauplast. The many, varied tasks, personal responsibility, and efficient communication encouraged my further development in our company. Aside from my work in scheduling/customer service, where I am among other things responsible for planning and processing the series business for two of our largest key accounts, I therefore took the industrial business administration course of studies offered by the chamber of industry and commerce (ihk). I am now in the process of getting my business administration degree in addition to my job, so I can assume more functional and management responsibilities in our company.”


Matthias Schieder: Industrial business administrator in scheduling/customer service

“I have been working in various departments at Wiesauplast for more than 10 years, starting out as an industrial management assistant trainee and including a stay abroad in Mexico. Now I am department manager customer service and key account manager. The diversity of my tasks continues to challenge me, making my day-to-day work interesting and giving me opportunities for ongoing further development. You can only find that in a midsize company.”


Susanna Lindner: Department manager customer service and key account manager

“Plastics was an interesting field for me even when I was still in school. That is why I decided on process technician plastics and rubber technology training, and was the first trainee to commence training at Wiesauplast in 2007. Three years of training prepared me very well for my day-to-day work. Since human resource development is very important at Wiesauplast, the company supported my continuing education as foreman plastics technology offered by the chamber of industry and commerce (ihk). That laid the foundation for my current position as department manager technical center, which I have held for six years. Here I am fascinated by the highly varied tasks, communication with customers and suppliers, and collaboration with colleagues in other specialist departments.”


Jens Borsdorf: Department manager technical center
