Weda has a long, diverse history. When the company was first founded it was a light metals foundry, which soon became one of Swedens largest. The founder and president, W. Dan Bergman lent his initials to the company name. These days Weda manufactures various types of underwater cleaning equipment. Read more about our rich history below:
Aluminiumfoundry started by Mr. W. Dan Bergman in Södertälje, Sweden. Production of household items.
The company has grown into an aluminum and magnesium foundry. Production of military goods and parts for airplanes. Major customer – Bofors AB.
WEDA, acquired by Bofors AB three years earlier, now has a Swedish pump manufacturer as customer - Flygt.
Flygt starts it’s own foundry. Weda introduces it’s own brand of submersible pumps - the Weda pump.
WEDA employs 700 people making WEDA the biggest employer in Södertälje.
The company introduces it’s first swimming pool cleaner – a pump with a brush and rod attached to it.
Weda introduces it’s first automatic pool cleaner – the B600.
Introduction of the B400 series of automatic pool cleaners.
Production of pumps ends.
Weda is asked to help the Stockholm water company develop a machine for cleaning sedimentation basins. Development of the SD System sludge collector begins.
WEDA Poolcleaner ISO 9001 certified.
The first installation of six Weda SD System sludge collector systems at the Lovö water works in Stockholm, Sweden. The VR-600 for on-line cleaning of water reservoirs is introduced.
Weda is acquired by the Eletta group.
Trials start with the YT-800 machine for cleaning slow sand filters. Again, the target is to avoid emptying the basins.
The B680 automatic pool cleaner is introduced featuring a new filter system and an ergonomic handle which makes handling of the robot much easier.
Weda becomes sole supplier of cleaners at the Olympic Game in Athens.
Several Weda VR-600´s are delivered to Service Provider around the world. SD installations are made on several markets.
Weda becomes a privately owned corporation. First orders from Veolia, Vodokanal and other major water companies around the world.
New installations are continuously made in various industrial basins. A special cleaner is developed in cooperation with Westinghouse Service for cleaning in nuclear power stations.
The product portfolio from Weda now offers solutions for sediment removal in basically all types of tanks and reservoirs. Lack of water around the world, increased demands on water producers and industries, along with improved public awareness of the importance of clean water has assisted in the continued growth of Weda products. Weda has today a worldwide reputation of being the company to turn to for water reservoir maintenance.
Good water quality relies on regular cleaning. In collaboration with our customers, we constantly develop our products and services to fulfill their requirements for pump capacity, speed, handling and cleaning needs.
If there are specific requirements and needs that our standard products cannot handle we can help you by providing a customized solutions.
Weda’s products enable the clients to save energy and to minimize the use of chemicals.
Tanks and reservoirs can be cleaned without having to be drained and in most cases not even be taken out of service and production.
Since the start in 1919 we have built up a worldwide reputation for the highest quality and after sales service.
Our business idea is to offer all clients solutions and products for cleaning of all sorts of underwater surfaces. At the same time Weda aims to save energy and minimize the use of chemicals for its clients. Fresh water must be treated with care. We have limited resources in the world. Weda has become a creator of solutions for several clients around the world who has designed and built pools, water tanks and reservoirs. When they later put into use, it has proved that it often has not been so easy to clean and maintain. In cooperation with clients and partners like Veolia, Westinghouse and Stockholm Water Weda has developed cleaning robots for specific applications. Examples are water reservoirs, cooling towers and nuclear power plants. Public pools is still a major market for Weda. With a complete range of cleaners for public pools Weda has positioned itself as a producer of the highest quality cleaners in the world, and with a service network to back it up.
All types of sedimentation in water are not dangerous. If not removed however sediment may become a breeding ground for bacteria (E-coli, cryptosporidium, etc). Organic particles left on the bottom of pools in combination with high levels of chlorine may also be the cause of contamination such as cancerous chloramines. To remove the sediment, thereby making a better environment, is in short the purpose with everything we do at Weda. We minimize the waste of water and we assist in minimizing the use of chemicals in all sorts of water bodies.
The industrial sector designs and develops underwater cleaning equipment for tanks and reservoirs in industries like Nuclear Power stations, glass works, steel works, pulp and paper facilities etc.
Weda has delivered and installed cleaners in nuclear power plants, glass factories, fish farms, gypsum plants, pulp and paper mills and several other applications where there is a need for cleaning (sludge removal) without having to drain the water.
Weda has a unique experience and know-how from more than 50 years activities in the development and production of products for under water use. Weda´s Industrial sector is aiming to find solutions for all applications of cleaning under water may it be with existing products, products that need to be customized or new products designed in cooperation with the client.
The commercial pool sector design, build and sell pool cleaners for swimming pools and commercial swimming facilities with high demands on performance and reliability.
Maintaining good water quality requires both effective water cleaning processes and effective underwater surface cleaning. Furthermore, effective surface cleaning means the amount of chlorine added to the water can be reduced. This contributes to a better environment for both employees and visitors. One of many advantages being a lower risk for allergic reactions.
2004 Olympics in Athens – An official assignment
During the Olympic Games, no detail is too small to be left to chance. The principal concern is the athletes’ wellbeing and the chance for them to do their best. Water quality is a significant factor to those whose arena is a swimming pool. Weda was chosen in tough competition with other suppliers to handle the pool cleaning during the Olympics. Weda was the only company that could fulfill the strict requirements for quality, reliability and service due to its outstanding products and the expertise of our local representative. We are naturally extremely proud of this official assignment and hope to have more opportunities to demonstrate our capacities and quality.
