After over 12 years of successful, international and cooperative development of wiegand.maelzer Rainer Maelzer GmbH, Rainer Maelzer has decided to leave the company.
He will be superseded by longtime business partner and managing director Hendrik Wiegand, who is taking over the management. He is supported by the existing team and authorised signatory, Thomas Schmitt, who has 27 years of industry experience.
Under the leadership of Rainer Maelzer, wiegand.maelzer has developed from a European manufacturer of waterslides to a global player. He has contributed significantly to the development and expansion of some well-known European water parks, for example the Therme Erding. Today, the company has customers around the world and is considered one of the most innovative companies in the water park industry and one of the leading suppliers of cruise ship attractions.
Five prestigious award wins, including the THEA Award, the IAAPA Impact Award and the European Star Award last year have proven the success of this company, said a spokesperson.
Wiegand.waterrides will be the new name of the company. At the IAAPA Expo Asia, the company will showcase fresh design and new innovative product ideas.
For customers and partners everything remains the same. The team of wiegand.maelzer GmbH is still available at the same office in Starnberg near Munich. The stainless steel and FRP products are still manufactured by the production company Josef Wiegand GmbH & Co.KG, and also the experienced project managers continue to be available for the projects. The press release states that for wiegand.waterrides it is the goal to deliver high quality products and to provide accustomed exceptional services with a strong team, as they did in the past.
In order to further advance the company’s success and better meet the demands of the market ,Wiegand.waterrides is planning to collaborate with WhiteWater West Industries. In April, the sale of the worldwide SlideWheel license to WhiteWater was successfully signed.
“The team is looking forward to a promising future and assure to keep surprising you with exiting innovations,” stated the press release.
