Innovation borne of tradition – since 1886
Innovation, courage and foresight: These values have accompanied the H. Vogemann company since it was founded by Johann Heinrich Vogemann in 1886, reinforced by the two generations that have taken the reins since then. This also includes responding to changes with confidence and foresight as well as paving the way for healthy growth even in difficult times. Vogemann continues to tackle challenges in this way to this day and actively assumes its responsibility towards people and the environment.
