Feb. 20, 2018 - German-based grinding and eroding machines specialist Vollmer will hand over its wood-cutting band saw products to Swiss sharpening machine manufacturer Iseli effective Jan. 1, 2019.
Iseli will obtain the rights of use and marketing rights for the product area and Vollmer will continue to perform service and maintenance activities for the machines delivered up to the acquisition date.
Guarantees and warranty obligations, as well as maintenance contracts for machines that Vollmer concluded with customers up to the acquisition date shall remain with Vollmer. This means that service activities and the spare parts supply, as well as the application support for all machines delivered up to Jan. 1, 2019 from the wood-cutting saws product area will continue to be performed by Vollmer without any restrictions.
The disposal of this product segment is part of Vollmer’s long-term corporate strategy. In the future, Vollmer will focus more on its growing business areas of CNC-controlled grinding and eroding machines. Vollmer will invest more heavily in the circular saw and rotary tool product areas and equip them with additional resources in order to develop new technologies, services and machines.
