In 1923, Jacob Friedrich Werz founded a small gluten glue production facility in Goppingen to supply local joiners and plywood companies. In 1941, he took over the operation of a previous glue customer in Oberstenfeld, Ludwigsburg district, who produced deformed plywood (chair seats and backrests, plywood housing for the German radio and phono industry, etc.). From the mid-1950s, a completely new process was developed, the later patented WERZALIT process, in which ready-made tables, serving trays, wall panelling panels and the like were made from finely machined wood, synthetic resin glue and additives. Parts are manufactured – the birth of WERZALIT wood-based materials.
WERZALIT gradually becomes the material name, the name of the process and the company name. The production know-how of the WERZALIT process is underpinned by a large number of patents. Over time, the process is also licensed at home and abroad.
