MWE - a Success Story
In the beginning there was traditional craftsmanship. After a long and thorough engineering education in a renowned industrial company and many years as master engineer in his father's well established steel construction enterprise, Mario Wille finally decided to construct and manufacture a line of stainless steel hardware that finally met his personal standards regarding design and quality. And so it came, that in 1999 only a handful of carefully selected, highly-skilled craftsmen and the experienced sales professional Don Menge started the success story of MWE, a company that within eight years not only established itself in a tough market but also became the market leader in the segment of free-running sliding door hardware.Today the name MWE stands for a line of products that due to their elaborate design and the highest possible manufacturing quality will be a lifelong source of aesthetic delight. Although today even at MWE state-of-the art machinery is used for the spadework, it is only through the artistry of the most specialized and highly skilled craftsmen that the stainless steel reaches its full visual impact and is transformed from a mere functional element into an architectural highlight.Even today more than 60% of the production time of each MWE product is dedicated to manual labour. The extensive and highly diligent finish of all surfaces makes every piece of MWE hardware absolutely unique.MWE is distinguished from the competition not only by its unique vertical range of manufacture but also by an unconditional commitment to Germany with its outstanding tradition of engineering and handcraft as its place of manufacturing. Furthermore new standards for the branch were set by MWE's technical department with its dedicated and highly competent support for a highly demanding international clientele. Last not least the MWE stainless steel manufacture never forgot its roots in traditional handcraft and still maintains a special construction department to realize particularly ambitious customer projects. To sense and even anticipate the customers' needs and to transform these needs into innovative products which are absolutely unique regarding form, function and quality was and always will be the mission of MWE.
