About us

For over 88 years, our company has stood for future-oriented technologies in the distribution and control of electrical energy. Our success story began with the foundation of the company by Alfred Wöhner in 1929 and his innovative capacity as a driving force.

Today, Wöhner is represented all over the world as a specialist for electrotechnical safety systems in the setup and assembly of busbar systems.

In conjunction with our 11 subsidiaries, a joint venture and an extensive network of representatives in Germany and internationally, we look after customers in over 80 countries. A talent for invention, the consistent implementation of our system concept and continuous growth are the cornerstones of our success.

With over 100 registered patents, we have established ourselves internationally as a forward-looking company and as a strong brand. During this process, we have always remained true to our roots: Our products are still manufactured in Germany today.

Our family business has its headquarters in the Upper Franconian town of Rödental near Coburg (Bavaria); the chairman of the management board is Frank Wöhner, the grandson of the founder of the company.

Vision

Energy is our passion. It is the basis of modern civilisation, a key element for well-being and quality of life, as well as the driving force for progress, innovation and culture.

Our objective is the safe use of energy worldwide – efficient and reliable. To achieve this, we invest in research and quality assurance at our site in Germany. Our employees develop fascinating and pioneering solutions for the electrical engineering market and continuously work on optimising proven products to meet new requirements.

We always look forward to new developments and to providing impetus for the future – and we are already in our third generation of doing so.
