WIRTH GMBH - Oktopus

Since it’s start up in 1992, Wirth GmbH has been specialising in the development, production and sales of vacuum-based lifting equipment and installation systems for construction sites and industrial applications.
Today, our OKTOPUS® brand name is synonymous with energy autarkic vacuum lifting equipment for installing large-format roofing, wall, ceiling and façade panels made of sandwich, profiled sheeting and glass.
Our business also focuses on the production of edge profiles and light-weight steel sections for industrial and commercial construction, machine construction and utility and speciality vehicle manufacturing.
Our product spectrum includes not only load-bearing crossbars and purlins up to 4 mm in material thickness, but also high-precision body sheet metal up to 12,000 mm in length for buses and, of course, customised special sections made of galvanised and laminated steel, aluminium and stainless steel.  We also offer treatments such as boring, stamping, nibbling, grooving, welding, lasers and powder-coating.
Mankind has been aware of the power of air pressure since Otto von Guericke’s legendary demonstration in 1661 when 16 horses were unable to separate two hemispheres which had been pumped free of oxygen.
But it wasn’t until the 1950s that this power also started to be used with vacuum lifting equipment for transporting and installing glass panels at construction sites.
And it wasn’t until 1992 that the triumph of vacuum-based lifting equipment began with the first OKTOPUS® vacuum lifter from Wirth, used to install large-format wall, roof and ceiling panels, as well as heavy door and gate panels.
Another of Wirth’s application areas are vacuum lifters for industrial applications in the manufacturing industry.
The quality management system at Wirth GmbH is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
Wirth GmbH is a member of the IFBS e.V. (Industry Association for Construction Systems in Light Weight Metal Construction).
