BW Papersystems Hamburg

BW Papersystems Hamburg was founded as E.C.H. Will GmbH in 1866. 
This was the cornerstone of more than 150 years of passion for engineering and paper of all kinds.

It all began with ruling machines for accounting sheets, later the company started manufacturing machines for the production of exercise books and machines for cutting copy paper and larger paper sizes. First headquarters were located in Hamburg and in 2011 the company relocated to Wedel, a community on the western outskirts of Hamburg.

E.C.H. Will was acquired by the US-based Barry-Wehmiller group in 2014.

Today the company is called BW Papersystems Hamburg GmbH and is part of the paper division BW Papersystems – however, the brand “Will” lives on in the product brand WillPemcoBielomatik.

BW Papersystems Hamburg GmbH is one of the 2 manufacturing plants from BW Papersystems in Germany.
