History

Every step on the road to success must be taken together.

Dedicated management and constant development work has made WTK-Elektronik a significant name in its field. Although the initials of the company’s founders, Dr. Jürgen Wagner, Volker Tillich and Manfred Kriedel, originally represented a continuation of the ingenuity offered by an innovative development team who brought their experience to agricultural engineering in Saxony, today the company has made a name for itself as a well-known OEM supplier in the field of electronic equipment construction and cable assembly, particularly in the agricultural, forestry and construction machinery industry. We stand wholeheartedly behind the vision of the company’s founders, and will continue to do so, because

“‘Wirtschaftliche Technik komfortabel gesteuert’ (conveniently controlled and cost effective technology) is our business”
