Recycling. Everyone talks about it, but we’re actually doing something. And we’ve been doing it since 1959. Back then, one young man had the courage to take his unconventional ideas and lofty ambitions and make something of them. Xaver Wiederkehr started out with a quiet little workshop and a rented scrapyard in Wohlen. This was back when recycling was still belittled as a newfangled trend. Today his name defines the Wiederkehr Group as one of the largest companies of its kind in Switzerland and one of the most cutting-edge reprocessing facilities in the world.
At Wiederkehr Recycling we all work towards the same goals.
Our corporate philosophy gives us direction, identity and – crucially – motivation.
Our vision is to RECIRCULATE RAW MATERIALS, 100% of them.
Our mission comes from our objectives. It acts as a code for how we think and act as a company.
We are an independent, owner-operated company.
We encourage professional development in the team.
We are a leader in Swiss recycling management.
We reintroduce recyclables from waste flows back into the production process as secondary raw materials.
We use state-of-the-art technology and tirelessly optimise our processes.
We use energy and resources with care and consideration.
We act sustainably in the interests of the environment and a healthy circular economy.
Our corporate culture is evident in the satisfaction of everyone we work with, both inside and outside the company. We never forget the great responsibility we carry and live every day in line with our values. They are the foundation for a healthy, sustainable and successful enterprise. Our values occupy a space between the three pillars of people, business and the environment.
