Weber Maschinenbau GmbH, the world market leader for high-performance cutting machines for the food processing industry, now owns Wente/Thiedig GmbH.

Wente/Thiedig GmbH has been part of the Weber Group since 2015, when Weber acquired 51% of the shares in our company. Since September 2021, Wente/Thiedig now belongs 100% to the Weber Group.

The previous co-shareholders of Wente/Thiedig GmbH, Dr. Bernd Köster and Stefan Quast, have transferred their company shares to Weber. For Dr. Bernd Köster and Stefan Quast, this change was the next, logical step:

 “We are paving the way for further investments in the future of our company and our jobs. The development so far just feels good and we are immensely excited about the new perspectives we have developed in this short time together with Weber CEO Tobias Weber as well as Alexander Burk, the new Managing Director of Wente/Thiedig.”

By incorporating Wente/Thiedig into its own portfolio, Weber Maschinenbau GmbH is securing our expertise in image processing, which has already been used in Weber machines for decades.

This competence is to be continuously developed further with a focus on the food sector: As Weber’s new company location, Braunschweig will now be expanded to become the Weber Competence Center for Image Processing. One focus here will be the use of artificial intelligence in production facilities for fresh products in the food processing industry.
