For decades, our mission has been to lighten the load of commercial agriculture by the mechanisation of stable and yard operations. This led to the design and development of the Hoftrac, which has become a generic term for its own equipment category – the original comes from Weidemann. The close co-operation between the Weidemann developers and our users has repeatedly led to innovative concepts and a sophisticated product programme with high usability and mature technology. We stand by this and continue to pursue our chosen path. Our customers benefit from high productivity, investment security and have a strong partner in Weidemann, who is always at their side. Our machines and services perform at a high level and bring daily pleasure through their work operation. Made precisely for this. Weidemann – designed for work.
Weidemann - a strong brand
The following factors identify a strong brand and reflect the Weidemann understanding: efficient solutions for maximum profitability and good investment security, a high recognition value, a positive image and a high level of acceptance in the market place, a coherent overall picture of the company’s products and a strong partnership between manufacturers, dealers and customers.
We take all these things seriously – they are important for us.
Weidemann - always the best solution
The Weidemann offer currently comprises articulated and compact Hoftracs, wheel loaders, telescopic wheel loaders, all-wheel drive telehandlers and a wide range of attachment tools and tyres. Weidemann is one of the leading manufacturers of machines for commercial agriculture and horse breeding, forestry and the wood industry, biogas plants, local government municipalities, horticulture, industry and commerce in Central Europe.
The following factors are important to us:
- a consistent alignment to our customer groups
- the ideal gradation of machine classes in technical terms
- the integration of new developments and specifications
- Innovations bring forth products which are groundbreaking in the market place
The perfect interaction between human being, machine and attachment tool has the highest priority at Weidemann. Thus, our solutions are convenient, safe and economic at the same time and are of the highest Weidemann quality. A real 'Weidemann' is always a multi-tool for your operations - a machine that is your daily companion and already indispensable after a short time.
For Weidemann, quality is not an empty word, but rather a daily living reality that is 'Made in Germany'. For a true Weidemann comes from one of the most modern wheel and telehandler production facilities in Europe. The newly inaugurated plant in 2007 in Korbach in northern Hesse guarantees a consistently high quality of our products. This results in safety, comfort and economic efficiency that you can always count on.
Quality begins very early at Weidemann, because the adherence to defined work processes is taken seriously. The in-house quality assurance team controls the purchased parts that are supplied to the Weidemann production. This takes place for new parts as well as for series production parts. The supplied parts are regularly compared with the 3D CAD data of the design here. If an error should be discovered on the part during the examination, a corresponding report, including photos for traceability purposes, is sent directly to the supplier for correction.Quality creates added value
The powder-coating represents one of the key features of the special quality standard at Weidemann. A spinner blasting system was installed before the painting system so that we can guarantee the best possible basis for an optimal, long-lasting paint finish. Even large assemblies with complex geometries can thus be optimally prepared for powder-coating or painting.
The high quality surface treatment is of course the powder-coating. About 80% of our parts are powder coated. However, with this method an object temperature of 180°C must be achieved for at least 10 minutes. Only in this way can we obtain the best possible cross-linking of the powder with the component – which ultimately makes for enormous durability! Due to the large heat effect, we cannot powder coat all parts: Weidemann paints about 20% of the parts in the wet painting process. This is the case with modules that are already filled with oil or have soft seals, such as shafts and cylinders and those parts that would not withstand the heat effect. In contrast to conventional wet painting, powder-coating greatly increases the service life of the machines and is therefore the more production method. Powder-coating is also very environmentally-friendly, since we work with a recovery of the starting materials in the system.
Our history – Innovation from tradition
The beginnings of the formation of the Weidemann machine factory consisted of a farm, two brothers and a shared interest in technology. In addition to agriculture, they both soon built a second industrial foothold. In 1960, Maschinenfabrik Weidemann KG (limited partnership) was founded, which started the production of machines and components. 12 years later, the Hoftrac was invented, which is a small articulated wheel loader that was often able to replace the time-consuming manual work on the farm. In the following decades, the company, now a limited company, grew rapidly. Today, Weidemann products are synonymous for compact Hoftracs, wheel loaders and telehandlers in the agriculture and the equine industry, forestry and wood industries, municipalities, nurseries, biogas plants as well as various areas in industry and commercial enterprises. Weidemann GmbH has been a affiliate of Wacker Neuson SE since 2005.
