The original company Kunstoff-Technik-Wingst was incorporated in Germany in 1966 by Manfred Brueggemann for the production of polyester resins. In 1976 the company developed its own waterproof seal system for flat roofs, balconies and parking decks on the basis of unsaturated polyester resins.
The name change to WIDOPAN Produkte GmbH came in 1999 and in 2010 Manfred handed over control of the company to his son and technical director Folkert Brueggemann.
Over time the WIDOPAN name spread across Europe to the UK, with installations dating back to the early 1990’s. This resulted in the creation of WIDOPAN Limited – with a head office based in Essex, WIDOPAN Limited is responsible for all technical and distribution operations for the UK & Ireland.
In 2014, WIDOPAN Produkte GmbH moved to their new headquarters in Hammah, Germany. The site contains a state of the art production facility, an in-house chemist and testing laboratory and an installer training centre.
The continued work of WIDOPAN with polyester resins, and their successful development of the product WIDOPAN-FD, installed still to this day, has resulted in a full range of products including WIDOPUR-LF 2K Solvent & Odour Free, WIDOCRYL-SV, WIDOPUR-1K, WIDOCRYL-TEN, WIDOCRYL-WT and WIDOPERL Screed
From the very beginning, WIDOPAN always strived to keep the quality of the resins produced to the very highest standards and with this in mind a number of products have been developed, tested and certified under the European EOTA and BBA certification.
