Working Together for a Sustainable Future

wenglor develops innovative solutions for sensor and image processing technologies that help customers to implement automation processes and positively transform the industry. Since our foundation in 1983, we have been aware of our economic, ecological and social responsibility for a better future and are taking various measures to achieve this goal. With this comprehensive package of measures, the company-wide guiding principle of “weGreen – innovations for a better tomorrow” ensures a strong environmental awareness among employees, customers and suppliers.
The 3 pillars of sustainability – economy, environment and social responsibility – are closely linked and play a crucial role in shaping a sustainable future. To achieve this, ecological, economic and social goals must be considered equally. At wenglor, the three pillars are included in the corporate philosophy and are taken into account in all areas of the company as well as by employees and decision-makers in their day-to-day work.

Sustainable Business Practices

We work in a high-tech and fast-paced industry. To safeguard the existence of the wenglor sensoric group for the long-term, the focus is on the development of new and innovative products. Our goal is to offer our customers product solutions for a wide range of challenges in the manufacturing industry. We achieve this by recognizing our customers’ potential needs and problems to provide them with standard products for use across a wide range of sectors and industries.

The close collaboration between the various departments ensures that high-quality and durable products are produced. Our knowledgeable sales representatives are in direct contact with our customers, enabling them to recognize their needs and problems. With our worldwide sales offices in various countries, we are in a position to better serve our customers globally.
