 Monday, November 21, 2016

hardinge-group-logoHardinge Inc., a leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting solutions and accessories, has acquired the assets of the Voumard Internal Diameter (ID) Grinding Business from Peter Wolters GmbH in Rendsburg, Germany.

Voumard was founded in Neuchatel, Switzerland nearly 70 years ago and is a global leader in the ID grinding market with more than 9,000 machine installations and 2500 customers around the globe. Acquired by Peter Wolters in 2005, it was subsequently moved to Germany in 2010.

Voumard is the most recent addition to the Hardinge Grinding Group which includes Kellenberger, Hauser, Jones & Shipman, Tschudin and Usach. Its products will be incorporated into Hardinge Grinding Group exhibitions and showrooms in 2015. Current Voumard customers will receive uninterrupted parts and service support, according to Hardinge.

Rick Simons, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hardinge, Inc. said, “The Voumard ID offerings by our Hardinge Grinding Group are a complement to our current product lines resulting in a complete spectrum of internal and external diameter cylindrical grinding solutions to provide our customers. By incorporating it into our existing grinding businesses, Voumard customers can anticipate the same superior quality and technical support they have seen from our Kellenberger operations. This investment continues the Company’s strategy of growing through new product development and targeted acquisitions.”
