History of the Vollmer Company...
and a Portrait of Wolfram Vollmer
Like a lot of medium-sized companies the history of the Vollmer Company is neatly tied to the founder, Wolfram Vollmer.
He was born 1924. After School, an apprenticeship, a study as an optician and the individual planning of a young man ? as so many others at that time - was interrupted by World War II.
As a soldier he was wounded and put into captivity. With his return back home, the Vollmer Company was founded with entrepreneurial courage. The young enterprise produced just those things, which were needed the most at that time, e.g. metal collar buttons.
After the currency reform, everything changed, also the demand. Plastic collar buttons were requested and so the switch to plastic injection technology was the future orientation for Vollmer.
The Entr?e into model railway accessory business was made in 1948. One year later, on the Nuremberg Toy Fair Vollmer introduces a patented catenary system for model toy trains, H0 gauge. Shortly after that, the first model houses were produced.
Additional to that, industrial goods production began. Until today Vollmer is manufacturing high precision parts for all kind of industries.
The number of articles, of personnel and
sales are growing, soon new buildings are necessary.
The guidelines for all these years
are still valid until this very day.
The number of articles, of personnel and sales are growing. Soon new buildings are necessary.
