Johann Peter Vorwerk

Founder of Vorwerk & Sohn 
7th November 1760 - 7th May 1842

////// STRENGTH FROM TRADITION

The more than 180 year history of the Wuppertal group of companies Vorwerk & Son can be traced back to the weaving mill entry in the Companies Registry from 1827. Parallel to the textile manufacturing, rubber production was introduced at the end of the 19th century and the foundation was laid for our present success.

With this wealth of experience and a strong drive for innovation, we have continually developed and optimized our products, our technical expertise growing along with that of our organisation. The pure rubber production is indeed still one of our core competencies, but is no longer the centre of our activities.

In 2005 we established Vorwerk Drivetec to position us as a specialist in the development and the manufacturing of innovative and customised suspension components for the automotive industry. Today together with our sister companies we supply car manufacturers and suppliers of the automobile industry wordlwide.
