Specializing in all problems and questions concerning home canning, WECK has continuously developed and improved home-canning methods with the aid of its long experience as well as the constant ideas and innovations of the canning experts at WECK

The WECK strawberry trademark and the word "WECK" have been registered US-trademarks of the WECK Company for many decades.

Not all the canning jars and canners on the market are WECK jars and WECK canners. The brand name "WECK" on Weck jars, canners, rubber rings or other WECk canning articles therefore may be applied only to products manufactured by WECK and carrying the strawberry trademark or the trade name WECK.
