Part of Something Bigger

WeCoTec is a newly established brand founded in March 2018 by Rob and Ross Weir of HJ Weir. The Weir businesses and particularly the HJ Weir brand is a fourth generation family business since Ross’ great grandmother’s laundry was in need of some automation. Ross’ grandfather saw staff in his mother’s laundry struggle on a day-to-day basis with the hand feeding, folding and stacking of laundered flatwork. Henry John Weir (HJW) went on to invent automation of this process which had a major impact on industrial laundries in the 1960’s and 1970’s by introducing the concepts and design for globally recognised products such as the Tru-Feed, the 1234 feeder, Compact Series folders, Stac-n-Fold and Foldmaker products. Rob and Ross Weir, father and son have a combined 61 years in the laundry industry. This new company is founded on unrivalled experience and excellence across laundry businesses.
