The company's history began on Wipertistraße 1a in Quedlinburg. In the 1980's a location at Lange Gasse 33, Alte Topfstraße 1 and 2 (the white angel), as well as the Alter Markt 26 and 27 in Halle, were masterfully renovated and restored by the VEB Denkmalpflege Halle to become the administrative centers of the company.

In 1991 the company was purchased after drawn-out negotiations with a trust agency through a management buy out by Kristina Fischer-Gerloff, Burkhard Strauch, Herbert Mo?ig and Uwe Henschel. This buy out did not include the administrative centers in the Alte Topfstraße, Lange Gasse 33 and the locations in Halle.

At this time the company employed 110 workers in Quedlinburg.

After the reunification of Germany, company expansions caused the center on Wipertistraße to quickly become inadequate. Further expansion was not possible at the current site due to archeological digs being carried out in the immediate area and due to property-line issues. A solution was eventually found in the form of Albert-Schweizer-Straße 34 in Quedlinburg, which was purchased to be the carpenters' workshop.

In spite of this additional location, the physical size of the company had not kept pace with the permanently increasing requests. There were also difficulties with ineffective and costly shipping and warehouse procedures in the carpenters' and masons' workshops, which arose due to the overall logistical situation at the time. Based on these concerns with the Wipertistraße location, the decision was made to found a new headquarters in Westerhausen. In 1998 work began on the new company headquarters.

On the 24'th of September 1999 we celebrated the opening of the carpenters' shop as well as the laying of the foundation stone of the new administration building. This was a significant milestone for the Werkstätten für Denkmalpflege GmbH in Quedlinburg. At this new location, optimal working conditions were created for our employees.
