Warwick Announces New Generation of Stewardship for Family-Owned Company

Warwick Guitars

Hans-Peter Wilfer, founder of Warwick and father of Nicolas Wilfer, has handed over the company to his son Nicolas Wilfer.

Since 1982, Hans-Peter Wilfer has personally been involved in the design of all Warwick instruments along with managing manufacturing and has always signed each of the Warwick Signature models every year.

"Managing manufacturing and personally signing the Warwick Signature instruments has always been important to me. The handover to my son Nicolas is an important step to ensure that this tradition continues," said Hans-Peter Wilfer. "Nicolas has already proven that he respects the Warwick heritage, and I am confident that he will lead the company successfully into the future."

Nicolas Wilfer has also expressed his thoughts on this progress, stating, "I am deeply honored to uphold my father's esteemed legacy. I eagerly anticipate the creation of all Warwick instruments, with a particular focus on designing and signing the Warwick Signature instruments, as I continue to honor my father's enduring legacy.
