FINDLAY TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Vollmer of America broke ground on May 11, 2019 at their new location in Findlay Township, near Pittsburgh International Airport. The new 30,000 square foot building is in its finishing stages and the Vollmer team is getting ready to move to their new location. Vollmer has announced the dates for their open house celebration, October 22-23, 2020 at their new building.

Vollmer, a maker of grinding and erosion machines in woodworking and metalworking industries, has had its North American sales and service subsidiary in nearby Carnegie, Pennsylvania, for the last 23 years.

Having outgrown this location, the company decided in 2018 that it was time for a 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”, says Peter Allen, president of Vollmer of America.

Some of the highlights of the new building are the doubled warehouse space for improved machine availability, a significantly increased showroom for a variety of machine demonstrations and training as well as the in-house fitness room for employees. The new facility has a very modern look with lots of glass, steel and concrete as well as high ceilings in strategic places. 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 Thursday, October 22 for the official ribbon cutting ceremony which will start the open house celebration. Tours through the new facility as well as announcements from Vollmer management are also planned. More information on hours and agenda will be released soon. See www.vollmer-group.com
