Karl Weis - since 1903

The short portrait of a traditional family business

1903...

The entrepreneur Karl Weis founded the company Karl Weis and Cie in 1903 in his hometown Ludwigsburg in Southwest of Germany

From the very beginning, besides production of wire goods, Weis has been involved in the production of kitchenware and household articles made of metal. Early on, whisks, graters, fruit presses and wire skimmers of all kinds were produced, which are still an integral part of the assortment today. The nest-spoon, which is still known today, was once an invention of the founder, and so the company flourished and developed steadily.

A few decades later, the second generation of the Weis family came under increasing pressure from the Nazi regime because of their Jewish faith. Fortunately, they were able to escape from Germany in time, and settled in the USA. The company was overtaken by a nazi supporter, and after the end of the Second World War was transferred back to the family.

Since the owner family was able to build up a new life in America, and unwilling to return to Germany, it sold the company to its long term German business partner Max Braun, grandfather of today's managing director Hans Braun.
