Quality has its name:

WDS – Winkler und Dünnebier

Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH

WDS - along with its sister company Maschinenbau Runkel GmbH - is one of the leading global manufacturers of confectionery machines.
As a specialist for Moulding plants, we are able to cover the entire spectrum of deposited sweets with different applications and throughputs.

We know that quality, innovation, short response times and a worldwide distribution which is built on superior customer service, are exactly the requirements that the global markets set to a modern company of our time. Therefore, hardly one WDS system resembles another. Individuality in planning and design has thus become the special profile of WDS over the years.

A permanent extension of our research and development work is natural for us and in our own laboratory new production facilities for the manufacture of confectionery products are developed and optimized in collaboration with our customers.

A tradition of innovation

Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH – together with its sister company Maschinenbau Runkel GmbH – stands for quality, innovation and tradition worldwide for nearly a hundred years.

Confectionery plants made by WDS guarantee high-capacity, reliability and sturdiness. In the year 1913, Alfred Winkler and Max Dünnebier laid the foundation stone for the Winkler and Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH, which is today an international success story.

A modern company with international presence developed from the smallest technical skills in the beginning.

Since 1997 we have been developing and manufacturing equipment at our company site in Rengsdorf near Neuwied in the Westerwald region of the Rhine valley, in state of the art office buildings and production halls with circa 10.000 m² of usable floor space.

Research and development

The constant expansion of our research and development work is a guarantee to meet the demands of the markets with innovative technologies. In our own laboratory new production facilities for the manufacture of confectionery products are developed and optimized in collaboration with our customers.

In cooperation with universities and advanced technical colleges scientific studies are carried out, for example, to avoid loss of quality or to optimize products and production processes.
