January 2012 – Another new machine for producing paper flags.
Up to this date flags in size C were manually put on a stick. Last year the turnover for this format has increased so that we could not always produce the flags in time. Therefore we created a machine so, equal to the sizes A + B, which can process the flags up to 40,000 a day fully automatic.
2015: New machines for producing cardboard dish plates.
Of course, cardboard plates are nothing new, because at the retailer they are available for example for birthday parties with various standard expressions, mostly coming from far-east productions. However, the demand for this product, with short delivery times has increased, so that we now produce it in our paper production department in Enschede and that in 4 different formats.
2016: Food is “booming”
In addition to the success of the party picks, now also a machine for burger picks. “Food” is big business and the demand for product related items naturally also increases. With the experience we have had for years with the production of party picks, we have been able to develop a machine as quickly as possible! This has been operational and successful since August 2016.
2016: Anouk from deputy to owner of the company
Willy Sannemann Jr. is now Sr. himself. With 50 years of heart and soul in the Wisa-business to have been with his 65 years the time has finally come to pass the baton to Anouk. She has been working in the family business since 1993 and since the year 2000 she was already director and now also the complete owner of the company. The company has been under her management for several years, where she can learn more about “the oldies” than vice versa. New wind through the company, other insights into business management and customer approach, are among others strong points. Willy will of course always be connected to the company with his knowledge of technology and will always be at Anouk’s side with advice and assistance.
2017: Papercups of own production
As previously written that “food” is booming, the demand for paper cups increased. With the idea that reliable partners could be found in Europe, we where very disappointed. Agreements and delivery times were not fulfilled by suppliers, totally inadequate in the WISA segment. The scream for own machines was therefore very large and was realized in the summer of 2017 so that the customer can also be satisfactorily operated for this article.
2018: Machine for double wall paper cups
After the demand for cardboard cups and the different versions of these had increased in 2017, the third machine for cups was put into use at the end of February 2018, now for the so-called “Double Wall”. These double-walled cups are extremely suitable due to their strong insulating effect for hot drinks higher than 100 ° C. Because of the double wall, the contents stay warm longer, with the outside feeling really less warm.
2020: 3rd Machine for Pickers, Pickers, and …..
There are seemingly no more drinks boards on the counter or there is a “Wisa” Prikkertje on it. After more than 34 years of experience and production of millions picks per year, the next machine is ready, so come on with the other millions! Manual productions from the Far East turn out to be not the same with our highly controlled hygienic productions. Also the fully automatic packaging in a box counted per 1,000 pieces, without PP or PE packaging is possible now.
2020-2021: 2nd Machine for Burger picker
In 2016, the fully automatic production of the so-called Hamburger sticks was started. Very nice such a machine with the knowledge of the machines for party sticks, but with a daily capacity of 10,000 pieces, we at Wisa do not really enjoy it. Fortunately, the knowledge of Willy Sannemann could be used, and in 2020/2021 a machine was devised together with a constructor with a capacity of no less than 50,000 Burger picks per day. This machine was put into service in July 2021.
