Vollmer of America to host an open house

Vollmer of America broke ground on May 11, 2019, at its new location in Findlay Township, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh International Airport. The new 30,000-sq.-ft. building is in its finishing stages and the Vollmer team is getting ready to move to the new facility. Vollmer has announced the dates for its Open House Celebration Oct. 22-23, 2020, at the new building.

Vollmer, a leading builder of grinding and erosion machines, has had its North American sales and service subsidiary in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, for the last 23 years. Having outgrown its capacities, the company decided in 2018 that it was time for a brand new building, trebling the size of the showroom alone to allow for more machine demonstrations and trainings for customers, as well as new employees.

“The new facility is setting our new benchmark for success for decades to come and ensure that we are able to offer our valued customers the support and service they need in North America”, said Peter Allen, president of Vollmer of America.

Some of the highlights of the new building are the doubled warehouse space for best possible machine availability, a significantly increased showroom for a variety of machine demonstrations and trainings, as well as an in-house fitness room for employees. The new facility has a 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.

Vollmer is welcoming customers, suppliers, partners, journalists and town officials in the afternoon of Oct. 22 for the official ribbon cutting ceremony, which will start off the Open House Celebration. Tours through the new facility and announcements from Vollmer management are set for the afternoon.

On Oct. 23, guests will not only get to experience everything the new building has to offer, but they will also have the chance to see live demos of many different Vollmer machines and get informed about new technologies in presentations and workshops. Several partner companies will be on-site as well, informing customers about their latest technologies and innovative product offers.
