Founder: Wilhelm Hesse


Maintaining the good and moving the new


According to this motto, we want to maintain the company’s 135-year tradition and steer it along modern paths with new knowledge.

In 1887 the entrepreneur Friedrich Wilhelm Hesse founded the spring company Wilhelm Hesse. After the forced nationalisation in 1972 the great-grandson of the founder, Werner Siche, reprivatised the company on 01.07.1990 and moved into the new production site in Ebersbach-Neugersdorf in 2006. After his death in 2013 his wife, Vera Siche, managed the company with a lot of strength and heart and soul, in addition to her actual work, and led it on its present path. In November 2018 she decided to hand over the management to us, two long-standing employees. Ms. Siche then left the company in the summer of 2022 and transferred her shares to us. We look forward to the challenge and will continue the long tradition.

Due to our high quality and convincing professional competence, Federnfabrik Wilhelm Hesse was already an important supplier in various branches of industry before its reprivatisation. Examples of this are:

  • Instrument making
  • Automotive engineering
  • Automobile industry
  • Textile mechanical engineering
  • Rail vehicle construction
  • Armature construction
  • Valve construction
  • And many more …

Since 1990 we have been constantly modernising and expanding our production facilities in order to keep them up to date. For consulting, spring development, calculation and production, our customers have an experienced and competent specialist staff at their disposal, as well as special software. Our efficient quality assurance system guarantees a consistently high quality of our products. This system was established on the basis of DIN ISO 9002 and introduced in 1994. The recertification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 was successfully completed in 2016.

Through our active membership in the Association of the German Spring Industry, we have access to all important and up-to-date informations concerning spring production and development.

We are on fire, for your wire.
