Welcome at SPIRKA Schnellflechter GmbH

Our company , SPIRKA SCHNELLFLECHTER GMBH, presents a more than 100 years tradition in producing braiding machines and has its origin in SPIRKA Maschinenbau GmbH, founded in 1951 in Alfeld/Leine and SCHNELLFLECHTER BERLIN GMBH, which goes back to company Guido Horn(founded in 1908) in Berlin.

With effect from 01.07.2009 we continue the production of braiding – and spiraling machines of Wardwell Europe GmbH (formerly SPIRKA and SCHNELLFLECHTER BERLIN) at our new facility in Berlin-Schöneweide.

SPIRKA-SCHNELLFLECHTER GMBH will provide spare parts and service for all braiding and winding machines supplied by WARDWELL EUROPE GMBH and also for braiding equipment from the Hacoba, Spirka and Schnellflechter brands that are in the market.

Exclusive production rights for WARDWELL EUROPE GMBH and therefore also for the SPIRKA and SCHNELLFLECHTER brands are now held by SPIRKA-SCHNELLFLECHTER GMBH.

In addition SPIRKA SCHNELLFLECHTER GMBH is producing semiautomatic and automic winding machines and respective payoffs for a wide range of applications.

As a result of  overtaking the american company WARDWELL BRAIDING CO., which is a traditional supplier of braiding machines since 1906 we are able to provide a very comprehensive machine programme for braiding, spiraling and winding for the cable industry.

The integration of SPIRKA SCHNELLFLECHTER GMBH as well as WARDWELL BRAIDING CO.  into WILMS Group will enable German and international customers to be offered a comprehensive range of cable production machines and technologies, as the Group’s range already includes the established stranding technology from SKET Verseilmaschinenbau Magdeburg GmbH, as well as STOLBERGER cable machines and HENRICH wire drawing machines.

Customers in the medical technology and hose production sectors will also continue to receive the well known braiding and spiraling machines from the SPIRKA and SCHNELLFLECHTER brands.
