Customer service and quality are the main priorities – this was even the case during the time of Karl and Erna Wasilewski. They founded their domestic laundry “Frauenstolz” (“Women’s Pride”) in Hamburg in 1928 and laid the foundation for today’s Nordvlies GmbH. The family’s second generation, Karl-Günter and Elisabeth Wasilewski, changed the direction of the company towards the end of the 60s. From the laundry business came a company selling hygiene paper products and cellulose fibre products. After moving to Bargteheide, just outside of Hamburg, in the 80s, the next Wasilewski generation, Andreas and Annegret, went one step further: This sales company then turned into a highly modern operation producing hygiene products.

Björn and Torsten Wasilewski have led the Nordvlies GmbH business activity as the fourth Wasilewski generation since October 2014. They will continue the business using old traditions paired with new ideas. Long-existing customer relationships and continued growth are the best arguments for the company’s policy: fairness and professionalism with tradition!
