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:

  1. 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.
  2. A good rap­port“ with custo­mers, part­ners and employees: Mutu­al trust among equals is an inte­gral part of our cor­po­ra­te cul­tu­re.
  3. The con­vic­tion that tra­di­ti­on is a dri­ver for the future. One result of this con­vic­tion is the first‐class appren­ti­ce­ship pro­gram at Thom.
