Dieter Weiss founds WEISS KG in Neckarweihingen near
Ludwigsburg, Germany. Right from the outset he
was determined to go his own way. His motto was not
to follow the crowd and produce a similar product, but
to be a step ahead with a new one.

The product development strategy is to produce
rotary indexing tables that simply won't break.
This is still the defining feature of every WEISS
product today.

Two years after the company was founded, the
first WEISS rotary indexing table is shipped.

Sales reach one million Deutschmarks.

The company relocates to Buchen in the
Odenwald forest, where it is still located
today.
