About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

Filzfabrik Wurzen is a medium-size company in the textile industry and today the oldest felt manufacturing plant in the world specialising in wet processed felts.

Established in 1783, the original J.D. Weickert felt company boomed in the middle of the 19th century, especially after introducing piano hammer felts. The product range expanded continuously over the years.

After reprivatisation in 1991, the company grew successfully, at the same time following old traditions.

Wurzen felts are appreciated in many industries and on all continents of the world.

Hammers made with Wurzen felt are key für excellent sound in instruments of famous piano brands all over the world.
