Product Description

The Company

Westermann & Co. was founded in 1867 as a family enterprise based in the Sauerland and celebrated its 140th anniversary in 2007

The brand Wesco stands for metal manufacturing in the classical manner – a combination of excellent German quality, an exclusive design and high tech functionality. A long experience in manufacturing and high tech form a perfect unity giving Wesco products their unique design

Soon after its establishment in 1867, the company specialised in the processing of metal plates for household goods and has since continuously extended the range of its products.

In the 1920s, Wesco introduced the “ash can” into its product range, after the war it launched its first “pedal bin”. Today, the range of household goods includes more than 50 waste bins in various designs. Some of these products are modelled on the historic precursors which have inspired the use of classic design elements in the development of modern products.

Wesco design is characterised by the company's long-standing experience with metal as working material. Because we are familiar with the material we work with, we are able to shape it in a new and exciting way.

DESIGN AND TRADITION

In the USA - the land of unlimited possibilities and unfortunately of unlimited volumes of trash as well - trash containers in the typical American dimensions of 50 litres and more have been in production since the 1920s. These bins were originally developed for the catering trade, but soon found their way into American households.

But it was not until the 1970s that the American 'trash can' celebrated its triumphal as symbol of the typically American design. This feat was achieved with the help of a German exchange student in the US: Egbert Neuhaus, the current managing director of Wesco. During his stay in Texas, one of these typically American trash cans caught his eye - and it was 'love at first sight'. Neuhaus brought the product idea back to Germany with him to his father's factory.

Due to long years of experience in metal processing the Wesco-team brought the necessary expertise to the table for re-designing the American 'trash can'.

Based on the American idea of 'large volume large input flap', the body and the semicircular lid of the trash bin were adapted to each other in such a way that the proportions were perfectly well suited to one another, and topped off by a large, technically solid input flap made of stainless steel and stable handles.

Further technical details were added. Now the only thing missing was a new name: based on the writing engraved on the flap, it was christened 'Pushboy' - the first child of an entire family which today comprises more than 20 design products.

ORIGINAL QUALITY - MADE IN GERMANY

Modern technology and finest materials guarantee the quality and longevity of Wesco products: high-quality powder-coated or galvanized sheet-steel and stainless steel are being used. Stainless steel is known for its durability and rust resistance.

The company strategy regarding functionality is based on a combination of high-tech and tradition: Projects designed at the computer are undergoing extensive test phases for function and sturdiness, before starting with high-technology production.

Decades of experience in craftsmanship take care of the final touch.

    Definitely better looking than the old roll-top wooden bread bin in a modern kitchen. Simple shape means it's easy to keep clean inside and out. As mentioned in the customer images I uploaded there are two plastic covers on the left-to-right steel bars which stop metal-to-metal contact when opening and closing the lid making things quieter but the base bars are bare metal and the unit moved about on the granite worktop. To solve this I bought this anti-slip matting (B003VY7DIE for £2.14 delivered and cut a piece to suit.
    Simple and effective but similar plastic covers as the left-to-right bars would have prevented the movement straight out of the box. Small gripe, easily fixed.

    Finally, a. Bread bin that does what it supposed to do. Not only does it look stylish, is solidly built and stays discreetly on the work top, but it keeps bread marvellously fresh for longer. Easily holds an 800g loaf with room for a pack of crumpets as well.

    I had viewed the product in my local shop but found that by buying from Amazon I saved £15.00.
    The bin looks very retro, it has been much admired. The easy open lid makes the bread instantly accessible.
    One problem, the bread is fresher if kept in plastic bag as well, if it's put in the bin unwrapped the bread dries out quickly.

    This Bread Boy is fantastic at keeping bread fresh. However, I can't decide if it looks aesthetically good or more like a huge black pudding aith handles! I have the black one, but I think a silver one wouldn't be much better, looking like a bomb. It is quite amusing, so I kept mine and I must say it is very very good.
