About Vollmer America

1963 Friedrich Vollmer launched his company in Hagen-Berchum to produce high precision gauges for cold rolling mills. This location near Hohenlimburg, the heart of the European cold rolling industry, proved to be well-chosen. Only a few years later nearly all mills in that area as well as in the nearby “Ruhrgebiet” were using Vollmer gauges type VBM 1063, of which several thousand are still operating worldwide today. In quick succession subsidiary companies were opened in most European neighbor countries, then in the US and in Japan.
