Doors Open Day
Come in, come in...
This summer, after seven years, we invited all our employees, friends, customers, suppliers and institutions to let them know how we produce an aluminium tube and to show to our beloved family where we daily spend so many hours.
All day long one hundred and seventy seven people, including thirty five children, visited us. Through a guided tour, nineteen people in our organization opened WYS’ world to all our guests, answered questions and gave everyone a representative detail of our day-to-day.
All visitors were surprised to discover how an aluminium tube is made and became delighted with the experience.
To commit our market you first have to commit your partners
Something traditionally reserved to the company management, like strategic thinking and value creation must be shared and talked with the whole company members to become completely competitive. It has to stimulate enterprising initiative and behaviour.
2013 is the year when Witte y Solá has left behind paper. 18 digital screens distributed all over the plant, plus numerous additional accesses in annexes departments, provide the necessary information for production and its management.
Manufacturing orders, customer’s specifications, manufacturing drawings, lithographs, technical instructions, everything can be consulted through these screens. Everything has become reachable at one finger.
This system, as the last one, allows us to obtain efficiency, productivity and waist online data. But, furthermore, has permitted to empty the production plant off paper.
In a second phase, production autocheck will also be managed through the screens and the system will check the suitability of online data and alert in case of deviations or defects.
Witte y Solá is the first company in the country that applies the machine vision to the aluminium tube. This way we are capable of guarantying a uniform tube surface, without holes and estrange bodies adhered to the tube.
The cameras, located in the printing station, inspect the lacked tube to find imperfections that may cause leak problems or printing defects. Our exigency level is to get the most, regarding all clients and applying a 0 defects politic and total quality that just an artificial eye can guarantee.
A camera placed in the automatic lathe of the production line that produces the smallest diameters, controls the mechanical and dimensional construction of these tubes.
In three of our manufacturing lines, the camera detects the perfect positioning of the cap and the nozzle kits, avoiding thus, to our customers a loss of productivity and waste during the filling process of the tubes.
New web site
Before renovating the corporative identity WYS has launched the new web site, fresher and more dynamic ready for a second phase that will add the on-line management of all customers’ orders.
Furthermore, Witte y Solá is working in a project of retail tubes to this people who is interested in buying a little quantity of tubes or accessories.

Spain is already exceeding the levels of unemployment that we would consider socially bearable. 6.2 million people are looking for work according to the latest government data.
However, many companies have difficulty filling their vacancies with the required profile, especially when it comes to combining technical profiles with the essential ability to manage people and teams.
A qualitative gap between supply and demand has been generated and, of course, the exigencies increases. Can companies afford being only the observers of a vital process for them? Should continuous training be the strategic solution for certain technical professions?
Petit Committee will reflect on the model of German Dual Training an international reference and currently developed in SEAT.
The current complex situation makes necessary, more than ever, having an efficient and flexible organization fully aligned with the basic aim of the company.
