When Hans-Peter Wilfer was 24 years old he founded Warwick on September 13th 1982 in Pretzfeld/Bavaria.
The company has grown continuously and so they moved the production to Markneukirchen in Saxony - where they also revived FRAMUS.
As a result, Warwick can count on a level of skill and craftsmanship from its workforce that few other firms can match. The construction of the new plant provided an opportunity to install state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, giving Warwick a technological edge to go along with its well-deserved reputation for fine hand craftsmanship. Today Warwick produces a staggering array of instruments with a quality level and consistency that is matched by few instrument makers worldwide.
Starting with three model ranges in the first years, Warwick offers now several product lines with more than forty different bass guitars and a huge offering of bass amplifiers, Speaker Cabs and accessories. And they added the production of the high-quality Framus guitars as well.
This success is based on the more than 50 years lasting tradition of instrument making in the Wilfer family, and also on one secret of the company Framus & Warwick: Satisfy the growing needs of the modern musicians with the diligence, endurance, and perfection of all employees.
In the future Framus & Warwick will dedicate itself and every product leaving the company to this commitment as well. Furthermore the company will advocate for consistent innovation and further developments in instrument making.
Environmental protection and environmental acting conscious acting is most important for the company. Since December 2012, Framus &Warwick is the first carbon-neutral company in the music industry. So the company sets standards worldwide.
