About CWG | Since 1910

Tailored Development.

Precision is integral to CWG - and an important component of our everyday work, together with honesty, predictability and diligence. Those values were displayed by Christian Weber when he founded our company in 1910 at the age of just 18. He never abandoned those values even in difficult times - which included the Great Recession, two world wars, and dismantling by the occupation forces. Values that ultimately defined our family-owned company, and upon which our customers can fully rely to this day.

Slow and sustained growth has always been a maxim of our enterprise, combined with the will and the ability to improve on a continual basis. After all, if you stop progressing you're actually taking a step backwards. And what we do is force progress - to give our customers value added! This is why we always orient ourselves towards the very latest norms and technological standards. Recognizing market trends and developing in such a way that our work processes are always up to date - that's what we called tailored development.
