When Johann Wilfer founded a craft business in Isny in 1957, he did so with the aim of simplifying and accelerating installation processes. This core idea shapes the company philosophy of Simplex Armaturen & Systeme GmbH until today. In six decades, the product portfolio changed from prefabricated heating and sanitary components to high-quality connection fittings and heating systems. The idea of simplifying work steps runs like a red thread through the company's history. Accordingly, the Simplex motto is: "Simply clever, cleverly simple."
In 1957, Johann Wilfer laid the foundation for today's corporate success of Simplex. His idea to develop efficient solutions for installers quickly came to fruition. Just a few years later, the Allgäu family business started industrial production, which had grown from the production of the first smaller series. Finally, with the invention of the thread-cutting seal, Wilfer set a milestone in 1974, which decisively shaped the further development of the company.
The toolmaking and injection moulding engineering sectors at Simplex stand for continuous high quality. The machinery used has the most highly-polished technical equipment; with only a single tool, production can run into millions without wasting time on tool-changing – and without quality deviations! The very latest measuring instruments support regular quality testing procedures and guarantee maintenance of quality certification.
The extremely short preparation times using quick-clamping devices and the use of the newest information technologies (CAD/DAM-networking) ensure the greatest possible flexibility in manufacture. This also means reaction without delay is possible even to minor alterations in the production and an optimum course of manufacture can be guaranteed. Quality plus economy – with Simplex a matter of course!
