Commissioning of the new laboratory and pilot plant building

The relocation of major laboratory and pilot plant facilities to the new laboratory building at the Hamburg-Wandsbek site has now been successfully completed ahead of schedule.

As a reminder: The foundation stone for the new innovation centre was laid in Wandsbek on 4 October 2017; the topping-out ceremony was celebrated on 18 April 2018.

A total of more than € 4.5 million has been invested in the new building, which is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratory and pilot plant facilities and modern building services. These facilities are used for quality testing of raw materials and sales products, for the development of our own products and for formulation development based on our products as support for our customers.

“Since its foundation, Lehmann&Voss has paid great attention to maintaining a high level of expertise in its business units and to marketing products tailored to the individual customers”, explained Managing Partner Dr Thomas Oehmichen. “By constructing the new laboratory and pilot plant building, we are aiming to ensure that we can retain and continue expanding our leading position in the field of plastics (compounds, 3-D printing, masterbatches and composites) but also in raw materials for rubber as well as for paint and varnish.

The Wandsbek plant is the site for the very essential stage in the development of products that are then produced globally in the LEHVOSS Group plants in Wandsbek, Solingen, Kunshan (China) and Pawcatuck (USA).
