On October 4, 2017 the foundation for a new laboratory and technical center at the Hamburg Wandsbek plant of Lehmann&Voss&Co. was laid. The Hamburg-based, tradition-steeped company will invest altogether more than €4.5 million into buildings, state-of-the-art technical infrastructure and equipment. “Ever since its foundation, Lehmann&Voss has attached great importance to having a high technical expertise available in its business units and market products tailored to the individual customers”, says the Managing Partner Dr. Thomas Oehmichen. “With the construction of the new laboratory and technical center we want to make sure that we maintain and continue to strengthen our leadership position, more particularly, in the field of plastics (compounds, 3D printing, masterbatches and composites), but also in the fields of rubber and paints & coatings.”
At the Wandsbek plant the essential part of the development of products takes place, which are then globally produced in the plants of the LEHVOSS Group in Wandsbek, Solingen, Kunshan (China) and Pawcatuck (USA).
The new building is expected to be completed during the first half-year of 2019, in time for the 125th anniversary of Lehmann&Voss&Co.
