Company Profile

The Weiss-Aug Group, started out with the founding of Weiss-Aug Co Inc. in 1972 by Dieter Weissenrieder and Kurt Augustin as a precision contract metal stamping company with 4 individuals in New Jersey. The company grew to over 150 team members and added molding and assembly capabilities by the late 90s. Entering the new millennium, Dieter Weissenrieder’ s vision for growth led to the acquisition of a tooling company, stamping company, and the addition of a medical device-focused division. Following the successes of those integrations, Weiss-Aug Mexico was launched in 2017, and most recently Lupine Research, an R&D firm in Boulder, CO was created to provide customers early product development support and next-generation technology.

Now in the process of expansion with 2 factories, adding another 100,000 SF and more capabilities, The Weiss-Aug Group is positioned to support customers with the smartest R&D, engineering, and manufacturing solutions.
