Abrasives and Polishing Tools, for more than 40 years.

Together we are creating history!



After thorough preparation, Günter Wendt announces the formation of the family company. At that time the focus was on the manufacturing of felt callots.


Leading by Innovation

Leading by innovation. The manufacturing of flap wheels and mini flap wheels started. This led to the development of the world’s first 10mm x 10mm mini flap wheel. The production was in the cellar of the family’s home. Up to 20 fellow employees were active. So family business is not just a phrase for us, it is our philosophy.


We are getting bigger and bigger

The cellar could not keep pace with our growth and we needed more space. Early in May we moved into our new production facility in the industrial park in Mauel, Windeck, Germany. Flap brushes and Nonwoven abrasives flap wheels are added to our range.


The flap disc on fibreglass backing

A milestone! After a couple of months of development time, Günter Wendt, proudly introduced the first flap disc on a fiberglass backing. His focus was to improve the productivity and working comfort. We also doubled our production capacity by annexing a new factory building.


New factory building and raw material warehouse

With the official opening of our new factory building and a new raw material warehouse, we again doubled our capacity and welcomed our 100th employee.


Branches in USA and U.K.

The time has come! Wendt starts on the 5th of December 2000, with a branch in the USA and on the 14th of March 2001, in the UK. The CEOs, Frank Wendt and Marion Wendt-Ginsberg, are personally on site to ensure a smooth start. We are very excited to expand internationally!


Change of Management

Günter Wendt decides to retire and hands the business over to his children. He is now devoting his time to his beloved family and his hobbies. We can still count on his experiences and advice today.


First ISO Certification

We get our first ISO certification DIN EN ISO 9001:2000.


Own Manufacturing in the USA

The first Wendt products are manufactured outside Germany at our plant in Buffalo, NY. In the same year opened another subsidiary, Wendt S.A.R.L., in Sarreguemines, France.


Wendt do Brasil

We welcomed our next new member to the Wendt Family, with the establishment of Wendt do Brazil in South America.


New factory building and training center

We are excited to introduce our new factory building including a new training center. Our popular product training sessions are taking place in this new facility.


New Look, established Quality

New look, established quality! After nearly a year of development, we are introducing at the Cologne Hardware Show, our new company Logo and Website.

If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
