Vollmer builds new subsidiary in Poland

Vollmer has built its new subsidiary for Poland in Zabrze near Katowice in Upper Silesia. On around 500 square metres there are offices for seven employees, workshops, storage facilities and a showroom where the Biberach-based sharpening specialist displays its sharpening machines. The machines include the QXD 250 eroding machine, as well as the VGrind 360 tool grinding machines and the CHD 270 grinding machine for carbide-tipped circular saw blades. With the new subsidiary Vollmer Polska, the sharpening specialist expands its offer for the wood and metalworking industries and strengthens its market position in Eastern Europe.

"Vollmer has been represented in Poland since 2012 with its own subsidiary and has successfully positioned itself here in the industry for grinding and eroding machines", states Marcin Kurcon, Managing Director of Vollmer Polska. "Our new building in Zabrze is part of this development. We now have more space for our sharpening machines which we can promote better to our customers. In addition, more training courses and machine tests can be performed than before."

Situated only 20 kilometres from the previous Vollmer subsidiary in Bytom, Poland, the new subsidiary is in Zabrze near Katowice. Marcin Kurcon received a visit from the Mayor of Zabrze Malgorzata Manka-Szulik at the official opening. Vollmer Managing Directors Dr. Stefan Brand and Sieglinde Vollmer travelled especially from Biberach for the event. Sieglinde Vollmer is curator of the Sieglinde Vollmer Foundation, member of the Supervisory Board of the Vollmer plants and daughter of the company's founder Heinrich Vollmer.

The entire grounds cover around 4,700 square metres, the new building has space for offices, workshop, warehouse and showroom on around 500 square metres. In the machine demonstration room Vollmer Polska showcases high-quality sharpening machines for machining tools and circular saw blades. The product portfolio includes five machines such as the QXD 250 eroding machine, as well as the VGrind 360 grinding machine for machining rotary carbide-tipped tools and the CHD 270 grinding machine which can be used to automatically sharpen carbide-tipped circular saws.

Customers come from the woodworking industry and include furniture manufacturers, sawmills and service companies because Poland is one of the biggest furniture producers in Europe. Circular saws and rotary tools made from carbide or with PCD (polycrystalline diamond) play a decisive role in the precise machining of wood, chipboard or composite materials. The metalworking industry with customers from car manufacturing as well as aerospace technology is also becoming increasingly important. It is not only companies from the region who make their way to Vollmer Polska, but companies from Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltic region also rely on these tried and tested products.

"For Vollmer, Poland has become an important market for sophisticated eroding and grinding machines", states Dr.-Ing. Stefan Brand, Managing Director of the Vollmer Group. "The investment in our new building in Poland is another valuable component of our growth strategy in order to be able to offer our customers more intensive support and meet the increasing requirements of future-oriented technologies and services."
