About usThis is ourstory and our journey
Our core values
This is what we identify with
“Made in Germany” is not a simple brand slogan. “Made in Germany” is a tradition. With tradition comes a responsibility that we want to live up to. We see it as our task to create products that are not only highly functional and durable, but also arouse pride and joy in our customers.
We believe that people love products that are self-explanatory. What good is a good quality product if it’s not easy to install and easy to use? Our goal is to develop products that make complex technologies appear simple.
We believe that innovation is the key to tomorrow’s world. It is important to create products that take into account all three components of sustainability. We value ecology, economy and social issues.
What motivates us
We live in a world where impeccable hygiene has become a non-negotiable must in every area of life. It doesn’t matter whether we’re traveling, eating out or working. People everywhere expect sanitary measures to be in place. This is the new standard.
We have made the following observations:
Over 50% of people who want to use a disinfectant station find it empty.
9 out of 10 people who use liquid disinfectant use it incorrectly.
The clear majority of users complain about the unpleasant odor.
Dermatologists confirm that alcohol-based disinfectants can cause long-term skin damage with repeated use.
Many air purification devices are bulky, noisy, and require a lot of maintenance.
We asked ourselves a very simple question: How can we do better? Can we use our company’s three core values to create products that are fully functional, easy to use and sustainable? The products are intended to redefine the standards of daily hygiene.
Wilfried, our founder, has been successfully answering similar questions in medical technology for over 40 years. He began his career as a civilian mechanic in the Bundeswehr and began in the 1980s to transfer the tried and tested basic principles of German aviation technology to the field of medical technology. Wilfried has developed “blockbuster products” for decades.
Seeing the potential for innovation in hand hygiene, he turned to Timon and asked him a simple question: “Timon, will you help me bring the hand sanitizer into the world?” WK-MedTec emerged from a loving, ambitious conversation between two family friends. A company whose mission is to make people’s daily lives safer, easier and more enjoyable. WK-MedTec has set itself the goal of developing products that contain the following components: quality, simplicity and sustainable innovation.
