Thom, the company
Traditional strength for the future
Since the founding of the Thom Metalworks company in 1968 the company history has a success story. Constant growth, expansion of core competences and entering into new markets have marked the success of the company.
What started in Kirchlinteln with metalwork jobs continued over the following years in the quickly growing mechanical engineering sector. The takeover of Schmiedbauer Metalworks in Verden in 2002 led to Thom, under the leadership of Thorsten Thom, becoming a complete provider of mechatronic systems with control technology. In addition to having an innovative range of products Thom also offers factory maintenance service to their customers.
System engineering opened up new markets. As a manufacturer of special machines and conveyor systems for the food industry, Thom Metall– und Maschi-nen¬bau GmbH has become successful worldwide, and continues on the path of success.
For over 50 years – and in the future – there are three guiding principles on which the success of Thom has been, and will continue to be based:
- No compromises on quality. A good price‐performance ratio is and always will be superior to the ”at cheapest rate” mode. This is the only way of permanently ensuring a high quality level; on services, as well as in production.
- A good “rapport“ with customers, partners and employees: Mutual trust among equals is an integral part of our corporate culture.
- The conviction that tradition is a driver for the future. One result of this conviction is the first‐class apprenticeship program at Thom.
