New generation of management for Vöhringer in centenary year

Yannick Vöhringer (picture above) has been announced an additional managing director of German company Vöhringer – a pioneer in innovative lightweight building materials heavily used by the caravanning industry. After a period of working for the company in China, Yannick will take over the operational management tasks of the day-to-day business from present managing directors Jürgen and Thomas Vöhringer through the rest of 2021. From the start of 2022, Yannick will then become responsible for day-to-day operations together with his management team. Jürgen and Thomas will continue to support the management team in an advisory capacity after that.

The change comes at a poignant time for Vöhringer, as the company is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Its premium lamination, profiles, furniture elements and PU products are distributed around the world and some of its innovative products such as VFLEX, VUNDER TECH, VSTRONG and V3D COMPOSITE have been real game-changers for the caravan and motorhome industry. As well as being a leader in that industry, Vöhringer also develops lightweight innovations for other markets such as laboratory equipmenty, offices and interior design, trade fairs and object construction.

In addition to this production facility with warehouse and logistics on 35,000 square meters, Vöhringer has another 30,000sqm of space in Engstingen-Haid and employs 330 people in the Swabian Alb. A further 2,000 employees work in associated companies of Vöhringer Holding GmbH in China, Bosnia, USA, Austria and Germany.
