In 1988 Roman Weber (42) started his own company after completing an apprenticeship as a toolmaker and earning a university degree in mechanical engineering. He specialized in wire erosion and manufactured foremost medical implants and orthopedic instruments from titanium and other high-tech materials.
In 1990 the Swiss businessman widened the company focus to include the manufacturing of high-tech components for a number of Formula 1 and German Touring Car Championship (DTM) teams. The move to the new company facilities in Tobel in the Swiss canton Thurgau was accompanied by a further expansion of the product lineup that now also incorporated high-quality stamping tools for the automobile industry.
In 2000 the company changed its name to Roman Weber GmbH and became the largest provider of wire erosion services in Switzerland.
Two years later Roman Weber founded the new Weber Sportscars division with the sole purpose of developing the world’s fastest street-legal sports car. Thanks to the immense know-how gathered in the manufacturing of racing components the CAD- and FEM-based development made great strides. The acquisition of a high-tech machining center allowed the development team to manufacture the first prototype components as early as 2003.
In 2005 the future assembly plant for the production of the Swiss sports car was erected just a few short hundred meters from the Weber parent plant. The public got its initial look at the first concept car at the Top Marques Expo in Monaco in May of 2007. After the completion of the testing phase the start of the exclusive small-series production is planned for the end of 2008.
The Weber Sportcars super sports car is not just aimed at automotive connoisseurs who want to call the world’s fastest street-legal sports car their won. It is at the same time testament to the immense technological resources and the enormous know-how of Roman Weber GmbH.
