All plants for finished products were concentrated on one single place which led to a drastic reduction of products. Therefore they conceived the idea of founding their own company, which was judged most positively from former clients due to the long-lasting personal relations and collaboration.
With their support, this intention to set up the enterprise INNOWELD Metallverarbeitung GmbH could be realized very quickly and prosperously. Another positive aspect was the availability of highly experienced, skilled workers to recruit from VEW.
The experts in steel technology, welding, forming, plant engineering, equipment fabricators, pipe fitters, as well as quality assurance/control specialists, were ready to work.
The operation was started with a small number of specialist/skilled employees, which was increased continuously. Soon after overcoming the starting phase, INNOWELD was already in a position to buy the manufacturing halls from VEW. The economic boom of those days supported the growth in the beginning but also during the following difficult times; where other companies struggled, INNOWELD grew steadily.
