History in short

Wap Reinigungssysteme was established in 1957 as one of the first cleaning equipment companies in Germany.

14 years later in 1971, KEW Industri was founded as one of the first cleaning equipment manufacturers in Denmark.

Through the next decades, both Wap and KEW developed steadily and became important players in the world's cleaning equipment industry. In 1988, first KEW was acquired by the Danish venture group Incentive, who founded the ALTO group. Later on in 1999 also Wap joined the ALTO Group.

In 2004, the ALTO Group was acquired by Nilfisk-Advance and the Nilfisk-ALTO brand became a reality.
