Founded in Brazil in 1961 by colleagues Werner, Eggon and Geraldo, WEG initially produced electric motors, and in the 80s started to expand its activities, manufacturing electrical and electronic parts, products for industrial automation, power and distribution transformers, liquid and powder coatings, and electrical insulating varnishes. The company consolidated its position not only as a manufacturer of motors, but also as a supplier of complete industrial electrical systems. WEG strives to grow in a sustainable way. Their goal is to be a global benchmark for electrical machines with a wide range of product lines, providing complete, efficient solutions. WEG is known for encouraging and supporting an atmosphere of innovation and future development, and this constant search for improvement has led to the creation of some of the most efficient products in energy saving available on the market.
