W+R can look back on 90 years of tradition and expertise in the manufacturing of gloves. The family business was established way back in 1928 in Neuhausen an der Erms. W+R then moved to the neighbouring town of Metzingen in 1936 where the first glove factory was built. The factory first produced leather driving and work gloves, at the end of the 1980s, the company expanded into glove recycling, cleaning, repair and rental.
Gloves by W+R are characterised by their technical innovation and reliability. As a sought-after supplier to industry, skilled crafts and trades, local authorities, the police and armed forces, customers all over the world rely on our decades of experience and our in-house development department with modern laboratory, sample sewing and quality control.
Since 2012, W+R has also been offering functional gloves for the end user under its own brand KinetiXx. For the coming winter of 2018/2019, the expertise and unique technologies in the form of innovative ski gloves will find their way into the sports sector.
