he company of WILESCO – its name goes back to the founder Mr. Wilhelm Schröder – was foundet in 1912. Right at the beginning the company manufactured aluminium cutlery and carving sets. In fact, parts of this production, for instance the big ladles and skimmers, are still featured in today’s range of WILESCO products. At the beginning of the 20th century WILESCO started manufacturing aluminium doll’s cutlery and other kinds of household toys. This range was extremely profitable during the worldwide economic crisis in the twenties, when WILESCO received many large orders from the United States. The turnover of doll’s aluminium cutlery slowly decreased, so WILESCO decided to alter the range slightly and add other items in the field of foundry and die casting production. In addition to this, the company manufactures many different kinds of semi-finished die cast products in aluminium and zinc. Most of the parts are used in the automobile and electrical industries, although some of them, such as flywheels, rods etc. are also used in the manufacture of the steam engines. In 1950 WILESCO started manufacturing stationary steam engines and accessories. The steam engines succeeded very quickly in gaining their own market share. In 1966 WILESCO added the famous roller “Old-Smoky” to its range and in 1987, for the 75th anniversary of the company, the steamdriven fire engine completed the range. It is adapted from a model of MAGIRUS from 1904. With these particular technical developments, WILESCO succeeded in entering further into the toy and hobby market. Today the steam engine sales account for about 50 % of WILESCO’s turnover. Today WILESCO is the the most important manufacturer of toy steam engines worldwide. You see from this short summary, that our products vary tremendously. This versatility has always been an important safeguard against economic fluctuations. We kindly ask you to continue trusting in the WILESCO range in the future. The term “quality and safety” does not only stand for WILESCO Steam Engines but also for the general policy of our company.
