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.

Quality Begins With ME
Dieter Weissenrieder, the founder of The Weiss-Aug Group launched the philosophy of “Quality Begins with Me” early in the company’s history. This philosophy touches every aspect of our culture and organization and is demonstrated in our success in supplying a multitude of customers with a Zero PPM rating.
Each team member is introduced to the Quality Begins with Me concept on their first day. We focus on the importance of being part of the supply chain for critical industries that affect lives. They know that they can make a difference for a family driving safely, a patient having a good outcome or even robots completing their mission on Mars.
The 3 Tenants of Quality Begins With Me
- Quality starts before the first part is ever produced
- Quality is not the responsibility of the Quality Department
- See something, Say Something
COMMUNITY BEGINS WITH ME
Just as each team member understands that Quality Begins with Me, we also believe that Community Begins with me. Our code of conduct, which guides our daily interactions and long-term vision, is central to our success. Although we have grown in recent years, we acknowledge our success is possible only because we have the best people and work to build a culture where people feel appreciated and valued.
“Anyone with money can buy the best equipment, but its people that make a company successful. Building a culture where people want to be, and want to contribute, and are exciting to be involved has always been critical to our success. I can proudly share that there is a multitude of team members that have spent their careers with me, several 35+ years, and I look forward to seeing the next generation of our team has the same great success”
