in the field of textile filter media, technical needle felts, wool felts and high-quality plastic products.

As an owner-managed family business in the fifth generation with 1800 employees and 16 production sites worldwide, the BWF Group stands for the very highest quality, time and again setting new standards.

Our social and ecological responsibility is not only an essential duty but a great chance to develop BWF Group for the next generation in a sustainable and prosperous way.

Individual solutions at the highest level of quality have always been our goal. 125 years are just the beginning!

Reliable production machines and an efficient site location are our goal. We ensure this through joint technical solutions developed in open dialogue. Yesterday, today and tomorrow!

Clearly defined processes result in sustainable development, high-quality products and exceptional market reputation. Product quality and service have been key to our leading position in the filtration industry.

Customers are our driving force, our employees are our most valuable asset, long-term thinking determines our actions and innovation secures our future. That was, is and will remain our recipe for success.

With our solutions for the optimal product, we have been offering our customers significant competitive advantages for more than 125 years. This is also our future goal.

Long-term, strategic and sustainable growth instead of short-term profit maximisation! This value orientation will also lead to stability and reliability in the next 125 years in a financially sound company.

We have been living with traditional values for more than 125 years and continue to develop innovative solutions for the future benefit of our customers.

Clean air is our passion. Innovative strength and internationalisation are an essential part of our success. We create unique, forward-looking and sustainable filtration solutions for a clean environment of tomorrow.

For more than 125 years as an employer we are known for our varied professional opportunities and also offer chances for further development in the future.

The pursuit and development of long-term partnerships has been a top priority and practice at BWF Group for more than 125 years. That is how it should and will remain!
