Innovation with tradition
What began as a one-man operation in the in-house garage is now a company with more than 500 employees operating in more than 50 countries. Since its foundation in 1983, Helmut Wedi has pursued the goal of simplifying the daily work of craftsmen and tile-laying companies through innovative product solutions. With the development of the 100 percent waterproof construction plate with the characteristic blue core made of extruded polystyrene hard foam, wedi laid the foundation for its comprehensive portfolio of functional system solutions for baths and wet areas. Today, the company's product range includes complete construction systems with which individual wet rooms can be designed in the shortest possible time: In addition to sophisticated, floor-level shower systems, exciting design elements, aesthetic design surfaces and practical system accessories, wedi offers its customers a comprehensive module and object construction service. "With our quality promise, the end user has the security of being able to take a shower every morning with pleasure for many years without having to worry about leaks or mould. For the processor, quality means being sure that all wedi products are exactly matched to each other and form a dense and functioning whole," explains Peter Beckmann, Director of Sales Australia and New Zealand.
Forward-looking solutions with added value
In addition to customer satisfaction, the focus at wedi is on the continuous further development and optimisation of product solutions.

And backed by a comprehensive 20-year manufacturer's warranty." With forward-looking plug-and-play solutions, technical integration and aesthetic design surfaces, the system provider continues to optimise its range and develop new intelligent products that will continue to offer real added value to craftsmen, tile layers and users.
