VOMO GERMANY: LIVING THE TECHNOLOGY OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTIONS
On Christmas eve of 2001, the long-standing vision of carpenter master Klemens Mormann and businessman Johannes Voss became reality. While Christmas trees were decorated in most families, Mormann and Voss signed the papers for the founding of VOMO Leichtbautechnik GmbH & Co KG.
On January 1st of 2002, just in time for the introduction of the Euro-currency, the production of the first lightweight construction elements with paper honeycomb core in Havixbeck started on 400 m² production area. The VOMO team consisted of a carpenter’s apprentice, an office worker and the technical staff. A press, a CNC milling machine and a saw formed the machinery of the still young company. As early as 2005, the production area was extended to 750 square meters – a horizontal panel saw was purchased and delivered punctually on the first day of the Münsterland snow chaos. Due to the widespread power outage, the arrival of the saw then shifted despite all punctuality but still for a week. The employee base grew to 8 permanent employees. The year 2007 was characterized by spontaneity and important decisions! In addition to the normal order situation, VOMO received 3 major orders for more than 10,000 lightweight components, which coul be completed within just 6 weeks! 550 square meters of additional production and storage space were rented and after successful order processing, it quickly became clear: “The capacity limits have been reached – more space is needed!" And that for quite a long time! Since 2001 the core area of VOMO Leichtbautechnik´s work includes the production and further processing of lightweight elements with a paper honeycomb core inside. As a classic B2B company, VOMO sees itself as an extended workbench and supplier.
