Vollmer celebrated the company’s 100-year anniversary at the AWFS Vegas Fair by offering afternoon cake and continuous live music every day. In this photo, Warren Caltabiano and Scott Ries of Vollmer of America pose next to the cake, while one of the company’s customers joins the band for some impromptu harmonica playing.

Heinrich Vollmer founded the company in 1909 with his patented designs for new machines for sawblade maintenance. In addition to the AWFS celebrations, Vollmer will open a new Technology and Service Center at its headquarters in Biberach, Germany, and will be offering various incentives, such as extended payment terms or discounts, to assist customers with machinery purchases during these tough economic times.
