About Us

The history of the Wantzen buisness began in 1888 with the founding of the origional company by Anton Wantzen, the son of a brewer near Aachen, Germany.

The company was originally  employed in the manufacture of envelope, paper bag and box making machinery.

The company enjoyed considerable success at a time when paper conversion was largely done by hand.

In 1904 Wantzen was appointed as the agent for Windmöller & Hölscher covering the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The sophisticated and extensive machines of W&H quickly replaced the Wantzen machines.

Today Wantzen still maintains its status as the UK and Ireland agent not only for W&H but also for suppliers reaching from Europe and as far afield as Canada.

All of us at Wantzen are committed to provide professional, prompt and competent advice and service to our customers.
