Waldner toasts to 115 years of excellence with a traditional Oktoberfest

More than 1,000 employees traveled from all over the world to the company’s headquarters in Wangen im Allgäu, Germany, to celebrate Waldner’s long-standing success.

Hermann Waldner laid the company’s foundation stone in Wangen im Allgäu, Germany, in 1908.

The German manufacturer Waldner, the parent company of Waldner North America (WNA), celebrated its 115th anniversary last month with more than 1,000 employees from all over the world at the company’s headquarters in Wangen im Allgäu, Germany. Guests put on Dirndl and Lederhosen and toasted to Waldner’s long-standing success with a traditional Oktoberfest, enjoying traditional German food, music and beer.

Founded in 1908 in Southern Germany, Waldner began as a small family-owned metalworking business. A few years later, during the post-war period, the company entered the dairy business. In 1957, Waldner introduced the first DOSOMAT packaging equipment to the world.

Over 1,000 Waldner employees celebrate the company’s anniversary at Oktoberfest in Germany.

Today, Waldner is a global leader in manufacturing world-class packaging equipment and customized, highly efficient solutions. Over the last 40 years, more than 3,500 filling and sealing Waldner machines have been designed and manufactured, with nearly 80% of them still operating today. These machines package a variety of products, including food, pet food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.

“There was no better way to celebrate Waldner’s incredible journey than with a traditional Oktoberfest. Our team at WNA is very honored to be part of this journey,” says Julian Stauffer, CEO of WNA. “For over 100 years, Waldner’s success can be attributed to its commitment to innovative, high-quality solutions, outstanding customer support and initiatives that ignited more sustainable operations in the industry.”
