Door manufacturing

100 years of experience

The company was founded in 1919 by Martin Schütz as a construction carpentry shop and cabinet maker. Alongside traditional furniture production, the other main focus of the company’s activities after the war was carpentry work on construction sites. When Hans Weimann – the "tinkerer” – joined, the company evolved into a high-end internal construction and finishing supplier, before subsequently specializing in just door manufacture after the two sons Gerhard and Wolfgang joined. Today we are at the handover point to the 4th generation and are proud of our history as a family business and of our many employees, some of whom have been with us for very many years.

  • Hans Weimann

    After his wedding to Lisa Schütz, Hans Weimann entered his father-in-law’s company. At the young age of just 13 he started an apprenticeship as a qualified cabinet maker in Wertheim am Main. His vision was to contribute with his furniture to the transformation that was taking place in terms of interior design.

    So that he could afford the cloth for his wedding suit, Hans Weimann fabricated ten valuable jewelry boxes, which he then sold to an art business in Frankfurt.

  • Starting a family

    “My dear Lisa and I had always worked so perfectly together. Her in the accounts department and household, and me in my job. Now there was time to start a family as well. As hoped, we had three healthy children. First there was Gerhard, initially a joiner and later on a technician, then Wolfgang, the businessman who went on to become a designer, and finally our third child Margit, who was the baby of the family” – Hans Weimann, during a speech on his 85th birthday.

  • 1960
  • The arch era

  • The tinkerer and inventor

    Hans Weimann allowed his “Swabian inventiveness” free rein when he spotted a gap in the market for the manufacture of arched window linings in one piece. Full of tenacity and dogged determination, he searched for solutions and techniques that would allow arched window linings to be produced more cost-effectively. It took many trials with different materials, equipment, and clamping tools until the right solutions emerged.

  • The transition

    In 1977 the sons Gerhard and Wolfgang took over the management of “Weimann Tür & Form.” Expansion and further development of door production became the core business of the company. Gerhard proved himself as a technician and provided ideas that helped improve both the production process and product quality. Wolfgang grew into a driving force during the expansion of the company and became a creative door designer.

    “We have set up our production facilities to be flexible so that we can meet our customers’ wishes in the best possible way. We are really proud of our skilled workers, many of whom have been with us for many years and were trained in-house.” (Wolfgang Weimann)

He was followed a year later by his cousin Anne Hübner, who focused on Marketing, Controlling and Corporate Governance.
