Ability to deliver even in difficult times through good planning and optimal stocking of raw materials, price hedging in purchasing, flexible production capacities and agile adjustments to customer requirements.
Already in 1909, when the Westerwerke in Spich were founded by Jean Wester, a word and a handshake were considered a reliable contract for an assured delivery of the promised services and goods. This is still true for Wester Minerals.
But today reliability means much more. It means the ability to deliver even in difficult times through good planning and optimal stocking of raw materials, through price hedging in purchasing, through flexible production capacities and agile adjustments to customer requirements.
That is why we at Wester Mineralien attach the greatest importance to meeting our customers' requirements and align our entire value chain accordingly. In order to be permanently prepared also for special customer requirements, we plan far in advance and are in constant contact with our international suppliers. Our corporate structure and constant production optimization help us to make adjustments and adapt to specific problems at short notice.
Flexibility and satisfied customers - that's what we mean by reliability. And that is exactly what we deliver every day.
At Wester Minerals, everyone contributes their knowledge to create the best possible, perhaps exceptional, customer solution.
Wester Mineralien lives from its committed, attentive and flexible employees. In all areas of the company, the collegial cooperation of the family-run company creates potential in the production and development of classic and innovative products. The flexibility, responsiveness and, last but not least, quality of Wester Minerals are due to the above-average commitment and know-how of its employees. Everyone contributes their knowledge to create the best possible, perhaps extraordinary customer solution.
Teamwork that convinces.
Family business for over a hundred years
Anyone who has been professionally involved with minerals for over a hundred years has an unassailable advantage: they know their stuff. Since 1909, Wester Minerals has experienced and developed the entire value chain - from mining to refining. The expertise thus acquired is an immeasurable treasure when solutions have to be found for a customer's specific requirements.
Trust comes from competence. This is undoubtedly present at Wester Minerals.
Do you have a rather unique request? We would be happy to help.
Flexibility means adaptability to new requirements at short notice. Thanks to the corporate structure of Wester Mineralien, we manage this without any problems. In contrast to large mass producers, Wester Mineralien can adapt production lines within a short time and also implement special solutions.
An agile market requires agile work and short-term, uncomplicated solutions: This is exactly what we specialize in.
Continuous development and the future always in sight
For customer solutions, Wester Mineralien relies on a mixture of proven technology, individual, innovative further development and the know-how gained from a hundred years of experience. Because it is not the technology itself, but its optimal application that makes the difference - from the laboratory to the machine. When it comes to manufacturing conditions and necessities, we always keep in mind the need for production that is as environmentally friendly as possible. Here, too, solution-oriented action is the daily task, be it for simple improvements or for larger investments in the future, such as our solar system.
Wester Minerals is constantly looking for improvements - in all areas of the company.
