walther was originally founded as a photo album factory, and from 1985 onwards added a full range of picture frames to its product portfolio. Its many years of in-house manufacturing and product design experience has seen the company develop into one of the leading providers of picture frames and photo albums in both Germany and many other European countries. walther's attractive products are now also produced in south-east Asia and a number of EU countries.
This involves close cooperation with highly reliable foreign production facilities where work is carried out according to walther's tried-and-trusted quality criteria and demanding design stipulations. As a result, walther is able to ensure the reliable supply of a wide range of modern products to a variety of established retailers on the domestic and international market.
walther's current premises in the Lower Rhine town of Nettetal (60 km west of Düsseldorf) comprise a modern office and warehouse building offering over 8,000 sqm of space. The company employs around 60 members of staff.
The 10 men and women who make up walther's domestic sales force serve a range of clients throughout Germany.
