We have changed our logo!

„Westeria® Fördertechnik“ becomes „Westeria® Moving Innovation“
After more than 20 years we parted with our beloved logo Westeria® Fördertechnik and have now launched a new one.
Because of the increasing export business (90 % including indirect exports), we also want to internationalize our logo. With the slogan Moving Innovation we managed it quite well.
Apart from that, the old logo shows only one of our meanwhile 4 production ranges. In addition to conveyor technology , Westeria® produces windsifter, bunker and material distribution systems.
Westeria® Moving Innovation – that is what Westeria® stands for. As the market is continuously changing, Westeria® faces new challenges by constant development and improvement of our products and systems. This is also reflected in the amount of patents, registered designs and cooperation with universities.


Closing report on the trade fair IFAT 2018

„This was one of our most successful fair presentations“, our manager Mister Knapheide said. The IFAT fair participation exceeded all expectations.

As a fair highlight, WESTERIA presented the material distributer DiscSpreader in a special live-show. On-site, the visitors were able to get an idea of the material distribution on a distribution width of 500 mm up to 3000 mm with a foil material that is extremely difficult to handle. In this connection there were a lot of qualified and specific discussions with interested customers. One unit could even directly be sold on the IFAT.

We also presented the flagship among the windsifters, our AirStar
Both exhibition models had a very positive response among our trade visitors.

Felix Poth, manager of WESTERIA expresses his surprise: „We didn’t expect so many special demands and also the vast amount of qualified discussions was exceptional.“
After 5 strong trade fair days, we draw a very positive conclusions of it.

More than 141.000 visitors of more than 160 nations wanted to be informed about news and trends on this record-braking trade fair IFAT in Munich. There were 3.305 exhibitors from 58 countries who presented their products.

Many thanks to our visitors for all the informative and pleasant discussions

30th anniversary of Westeria® Fördertechnik

Westeria® on the high seas
30th anniversary of Westeria® Fördertechnik

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Westeria® Fördertechnik GmbH, the two managing directors Kai-Uwe Knapheide and Bernhard Westbrock invited to attend a boat trip with the Santa Monica III on 29. October 2016. More than 110 employees accepted the invitation and enjoyed the trip. It was particularly pleasing that also 8 „Westeria-pensioners“ participated.
Punctually at 1 p.m. two buses started their way from the company premises in Ostbevern to the dock in Hamm. After about an one-hour-journey and the obligatory group photo, the boarding for Santa Monica III started. „Cast-off“ was at 2.15 p.m.
With splendid weather and a very good atmosphere, the guests first enjoyed an excellent cake buffet and later in the evening also an exquisite warm buffet.
Starting from Hamm, the 7-hour-trip went via Bergkamen, Lünen, Datteln, Lüdinghausen and Senden. Around 9.15 in the evening the Münster port was reached.
Exhausted but very satisfied, all travellers were back on solid ground and one or the other group continued spending the evening together.
Westeria® was founded in 1956 as „Westeria® Maschinenfabrik“. The company mainly produced conveyor units for the agricultural sector. Due to numerous innovations, the production figures increased quickly and the product range was expanded by various conveyor systems.
Since 1986 Westeria® has concentrated on producing conveyor plants for the recycling industry. Thus, the company’s new name „Westeria® Fördertechnik“ was chosen.
Today Westeria® has 155 employees at its site in Ostbevern and the company produces plants for recycling and cement industry. Westeria® now is a worldwide market and technology leader in the fields of windsifter and conveyor industry.


Exhibition report IFAT 2016

"We are looking back on one of our most sucessful fair presentations", our managing director Mister Knapheide concluded. By attending the IFAT again, all expectations were surpassed.

WESTERIA® presented its fair highlight among the stationary windsifters, the AirStar, as well as the upgraded material distribution system "DiscSpreader DS1". A lot of trade visitors showed an extremely positive interest in both exhibition types.

Felix Poth, sales manager of WESTERIA®, is positively surprised: "We didn't expect this vast amount of specific inquiries. There was a high quality level of expert and technical discussions."

More than 138,000 people from more than 170 nations visited the IFAT in Munich to get the latest information of the industry's new products and trends presented by 3,097 fair exhibitors from 59 countries.

We kindly thank our visitors for all the informative and very pleasant conversations on the IFAT!
