Winkler und Dünnebier Süsswarenmaschinen

The name of the Winkler und Dünnebier Süsswarenmaschinen GmbH product stands for high capacity, reliability & solid reputation. Know-how accumulated over 90 years of the company development & engineering of high-quality production lines means experience & quality in combination with the tradition.

Production lines of the  WDS company at present is a positive concept characterizing trademarked goods not only in the confectionary sector.

Since 1997 the location of Winkler und Dünnebier Süsswarenmaschinen GmbH has been Rengsdorf near Neuwied in the Westerwald region. The total area of production facilities exceeds 7.500 sq.m.

The production of high-quality WDS lines is supported by competent specialists - erectors, designers and, which is also of crucial importance, precise & the most advanced production lines.

Besides technical competence, know-how & product quality management sales representatives overcome hundred thousands air-route kilometers in order to provide optimum services to their customers and in this way, in close cooperation with the company representation offices, to acquire information on customers as well as to accumulate experience which in its turn produces an effect on the orientation of the range of products. This is why by now the company projects have been implemented nearly in all continents - in Asia, Africa, America &, of course, in Europe. As a rule project amounts range from 100.000 Euro to several millions Euro and involve stages starting with engineering to the complete commissioning.

Currently WDS is engaged in the production of lines designed for molding of filled & unfilled chocolate products offering various applications & capacity ranges, lines for hard-boiled sweet molding as well as processes for engineering modular lines for manufacturing products based on gelatin, starch, pectin, agar, etc. The range of products is supplemented by lab-scale molding machines designed for the development of products and a specific line rigging, e.g., units for adding cherry, nuts & granulates.

One WDS line is hardly similar to the other. With the diversity of customer needs & wishes, expected capacities & prerequisites related to premises a routine fabrication is appropriately excluded. Therefore, differentiation in planning & conception is an ongoing challenge which meanwhile has become the company power.
