Our Family Business

At WTA, we pride ourselves on the ability to give you the kind of first-class, bespoke service that only a unique family business can.  

Founded over 100 years ago by Ernest Sommer, our operations are built on an enduring foundation of passion and professionalism. These core values are held by our team and have been internationally recognised by the industry - being awarded the 2015 Family Business of the Year from Family Business United.

Because we are family-owned and run, we are completely independent. Our freedom allows us to offer you a level of flexibility that you won’t get with large corporations. We will never merge you into one package or another. Your needs are as unique as you are, and so too shall be your solution.

Working hand-in-hand with you, our team will develop an outcome for your business that not only meets your requirements and desires, but exceeds them.

Our global logistics experts are 100% focused on delivering a completely personalised procedure. One that is a perfect fit for your distribution and logistics.

A process that will not only streamline your business operations but will also help you to optimise your profit margins.

Giving You a First-Class Customer Experience
