60 years of WEDO

Business partners of WEDO will have noticed already that our logo (see above) changed somewhat this year.

The reason is our advanced age – we get to celebrate our 60th anniversary this year! But we are not using our birthday as an opportunity for quiet reflection and retirement planning. Quite the contrary: we are looking ahead. Together with our customers, we want to make a meaningful and significant contribution to progress in the candle industry and ensure its future success in an ever-changing market. To achieve this, will be launching a number of important projects in our anniversary year. This includes the foundation of our subsidiary WEDO Poland, which has been in charge of the production of our memorial candles since January.

Instead of a roaring anniversary celebration, we and our stakeholders have jointly decided to support projects in our communities, the candlemakers’ associations and training and research projects in the textile industry. These efforts are intended to promote the development of the industry as a whole and improve our own expertise in manufacturing quality candles in an environmentally friendly manner. We wish to make a concrete contribution to the future stability of the candle industry and, simultaneously, the future of WEDO.

More information will become available here over the course of the fiscal year – do come back soon!
