VDL Weweler 100 Years

VDL Weweler 100 Years

5 March 2024

This year, 2024 will be a very special year for Weweler – as we will be celebrating our 100th anniversary! This is such a remarkable and memorable milestone of which we are very proud.

Over the past century continuous technical innovations drove our growth and we are striving to proceed this in the future to come.
Starting in 1924, in Apeldoorn The Netherlands, as a wholesale business selling replacement parts for heavy commercial vehicles. Later in 1948, the company started producing springs and in the 70’s and 80’s moved on to designing and producing air suspension systems.
Since 2001 VDL Weweler became part of VDL Groep, an international industrial family-owned Dutch company, founded in 1953 with five main divisions. Resulting in the addition VDL to the company name. VDL Groep is a conglomerate of flexible, independent companies, each with its own specialty. The strength of VDL Groep lies in the mutual cooperation between these companies.
In 2013, VDL Weweler opened a new high-tech plant at a new location in Apeldoorn. With its unique one-off machinery and advanced robotics, state-of-the-art test facility, optimal logistics, a critical quality policy and world-class craftsmanship, the production plant provided the new basis to ensure VDL Weweler’s customers receive the added-value they so desire and deserve.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our customers for their continued support and trust. Next to that we of course also extend our heartfelt thanks to all our past and present employees for their dedication and unwavering commitment to delivering our quality product.

In the coming months we will highlight here some crucial innovations and interesting moments from our history. As well as new developments and innovations.
We are excited to celebrate this momentous occasion, and we invite you to meet us at our stand at the upcoming IAA Transportation 2024 in Hannover later this year.

Thank you once again for your support and trust in VDL Weweler.
