160 yearsfor industry, commerce and consumers
August VORMANN employs roughly 190 associates at its 3 facilities, about half of whom are employed in the Ennepetal plants (administration, warehouse and logistics), and the other half in Elsterwerda (production plant). The family-owned company, now managed by its owners in the 5th generation, was founded in 1863 by Ludwig VORMANN and can thus look back on a tradition of 160 years. Over the years, the hinge manufacturer from the days of rapid industrial expansion in the 19th century has developed into an international player offering a wide range of different products for both DIY and professional customers today.
In manufacturing, VORMANN relies on the “Made in Germany” quality seal. With the acquisition of the building approval as well as CE labelling for its statically relevant wood connectors and support shoes, VORMANN also offers distributors and users more transparency regarding product safety and quality standards.
The quality management system according to EN ISO 9001:2015, which was already established a number of years ago and includes regular audits and inspections, provides an additional warranty that our customers receive the quality they have come to expect. Apart from the production and distribution of standard product ranges in the area of connection elements (such as hinges, fittings, wood connectors, brackets, connectors and holders), bracket and shelf systems, chains, ropes and accessories, load securing equipment, as well as a handrail and banister system, we also offer the development and production of customised products from drawings if desired by our customers.
Our own sales subsidiary in South Africa and close cooperation agreements with long-standing partner companies, for example in Austria, Switzerland, the Benelux countries, Russia, Latvia and Romania, underline VORMANN’s international orientation, which is also reflected by its website that is available in 5 different languages.
