For many generations, the name WENZEL has stood for high innovative strength and the highest quality standards for everything to do with candles. Since our company was founded in 1899, we have developed well over 1,000 different candle designs that delight our customers all over the world. All of our candles are 100% RAL quality, and exclusively manufactured in Aschaffenburg / Germany.
Finally yet importantly, our export quota of over 35% speaks for the popularity of our products. In comparison: In the 1980s, the share of exported candles was around 2%.
Our current production area covers approx. 10,000 square meters, which are spread over two plants. Our in-house high-bay warehouse has a capacity of 8,000-euro pallets so that we can always work on an order-related basis and thus respond optimally to individual customer requests.
