Product Description

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.

I bought this bin for its looks! Unfortunately it is completely impratical as an every day kitchen waste bin as the flap is too small for many items and gets dirty easily. I have had to dig out my old plastic bin and relegate this one for use as a recyling bin only.

This is a quality product and does look great BUT a bin also needs to do a job and this fails miserably. I had thought that the push action opening could be a bit of a pain but it was worse than I had imagined. The push lid is quite small and has a good closer making it hard to put anything but the smallest of items in and if you need to scrape a dinner plate or similar it's impossible. It has to be emptied more regularly too because anything sticking up prevents the lid from being opened.The final major issue is that to empty the bin, the entire metal section (everything in cream) has to be lifted off the plastic interior - if I'd thought about it, you'd think that the top came off just above the logo but you have to lift the metal bin to reveal the black plastic inner bin (that you can see at the bottom of the picture, that I had thought was a non-slip base) before you can get the bag out - all way too much hassle and a enormous waste of money. Yes, it looks great and is good quality but if you need a real bin, don't buy this one without seeing it first. I don't write reviews normally but had to with this - I can't believe I've now spent nearly £200 to get a decent bin.

It looks lovely but that's it, you can't scrape any left overs in the bin because its impossible, the flap closes on your hand and traps it, everyone who has visited and used it says the same, looks great but isn't any use to no body, wouldn't recommend it, wish I hadn't bought it, a lot of money for something that's useless!!!

Firstly, in response to the previous review about this being impractical.....what you talkin' 'bout Willis? It is a bin. It is not impractical (due to flap being too small) unless you plan on pushing your head through and wearing as a hat (though smaller heads would fit). The 50 litre capacity seems like just the right size for a family of 4 plus. You could probably bathe a small child in this bin (to give you an idea on size), though I have not yet tried this myself....yet...I would need to borrow a small child. A small child could also put the bin over him/herself and pretend to be R2D2 from Star Wars - a cost saving for halloween. This type of bin is also good if you want to place it under a breakfast bar, whereas the pop up lids would not be as practical.

All in all a great bin and addition to the family ...and the only one to have not developed an attitude ...I've named mine Terry.

In seriousness, an excellent bin...and looks pretty cool....for a bin.

It may be expensive - ( Its cheaper again now:( )but it fits in our kitchen design perfectly. Not fiddly, no parts to go wrong and very good construction and perfectly protected on delivery. Very happy.

Customers should be advised (as per Wesco terms & conditions), that if any Wesco product is purchased through any third party trader other than Wesco themselves, any manufactures guarantee is automatically annulled by default by the manufacturer.

This would seem to infringe on the customers statutory rights, but Wesco are a German based company who are under German law and not the trading laws of the UK.
