The manufacturer of the well-known Weck glasses has filed for bankruptcy. This was confirmed by a spokeswoman for J. Weck GmbH & Co. KG. Initially, she did not provide any further information – for example on the reasons for the bankruptcy. The company is based in the town of Wehr in southern Baden-Württemberg. In addition, the subsidiary Weck Glaswerk GmbH has a production site in Bonn. Insolvency proceedings were therefore also filed for this company. The “Wirtschaftswoche” had previously reported on it.
The traditional company has been around for more than 123 years. But Weck does not only produce the well-known preserving jars. The company makes a large part of its business with the manufacture of vessels for trade and gastronomy.
