PWG was founded in 1985 as startup by the brothers Armin, Guntram and Hans Wiblishauser. From the beginning their business idea was coating of nonwovens for the veneer processing industry.
The story began in the old buildings of the former family-owned furniture factory in the bavarian village Walkertshofen. However, it was a very difficult start. Main problems were a still undeveloped niche market as well as the difficult procurement of raw materials.
