VOLLMER of America - Groundbreaking Ceremony 05/11/2019

to overview

VOLLMER of America broke ground on Saturday May 11, 2019 at their new location in Findlay Township, PA near Pittsburgh Airport. The new 29,200 square foot building is expected to be finished in March 2020.

VOLLMER, the global market leader for grinding and erosion machines in woodworking and metalworking industries, has had its North American sales and service subsidiary in Carnegie, PA for the last 22 years. Having outgrown its capacities, the company has decided in 2018 that it was time for a brand new building, tripling the size of the showroom alone to allow for more machine demonstrations and trainings for customers as well as new employees. “This will set VOLLMER up for success for decades to come and ensure the best possible service to our customers”, says Peter Allen, President of VOLLMER of America.

As of today, VOLLMER is expecting to move to the new 29,200 sq ft facility in March 2020 and will welcome customers and partners for an Open House celebration shortly after. Some of the highlights of the new building will be the doubled warehouse space for best possible machine availability, a significantly increased show room for a variety of machine demonstrations and trainings as well as the in-house gym for employees. The new facility will have a very modern look with lots of glass, steel and concrete as well as high ceilings in strategic places. Furthermore, the 5.8 acre lot provides plenty of room for future expansions.

With more than 800 employees worldwide, the VOLLMER Group which was founded in 1909, has established itself as the world market leader in grinding & erosion equipment. The North American subsidiary currently counts 28 employees, 21 of which are based out of the Carnegie (and soon to be Findlay Township) office. The other 7 are strategically located throughout the US to cover more ground in sales & service.
