You don’t get to be 150 years old just by being lucky.  German pump-maker Wilo is paused to celebrate its big anniversary next year and it owes a great deal of its survival and growth to innovation, something it has worked hard to build into its culture.  Founded in 1872 as a brass and copper foundry the business has grown to become a typical ‘hidden champion’,  quietly getting on with its business of becoming world-leading in its field, providing a wide range of innovative pumping solutions for a global market.  

In this interview with Sven Grave, Head of Innovation, we explore a little more about how the company continues to benefit from the ideas and insights of its employees.
