1985 - Establishment of Wehrli Maschinenbau
Following an apprenticeship as a mechanic and two short years as a journeyman, Hermann Wehrli laid the cornerstone at the age of 23 for the present companies, Wehrli Fertigungstechnik and Wecotech AG. His vision of becoming an entrepreneur began to come take shape.

First employees
Hermann Wehrli worked with enormous commitment on his parent's farm in the workshop he erected himself. Success bore immediate fruits. The first two employees were taken on before the end of the year to cope with numerous customer orders.

1987 - Move to business premises
The rented premises at last offered an ideal environment to house expensive CNC machines and accommodate valuable skilled personnel. Nothing more stood in the way of further progress.

Machine development
A wealth of ideas and a firm determination to open up markets with his own products impelled Hermann Wehrli to study a variety of engineering sectors. Equipment and machines were developed and produced for cabinetmakers, carpenters, gravel conveying, grain conveying, agriculture and chimney construction.

Tube end forming
While endeavouring to develop his own products, Hermann Wehrli rapidly turned towards tube end forming. The then nascent chimney construction method using stainless steel tubes required innovative new machines, equipment and tools which first needed to be invented and manufactured.

CNC production
Job order production operations were, simultaneously, consistently expanded. CNC processing machines which enabled increasingly more effective production were purchased and operated by well-trained personnel. The number of employees grew to more than 20.

1990 - The first apprentices
Hermann Wehrli was always passionate about education, training and helping young people to advance in life. He believed from an early age that one should not only take what life has to offer, but also give something back.
