Wemhöner Surface Technologies GmbH & Co. KG
Mr. Lauer brings clarity and reliability to questions that cannot be clearly answered internally. We appreciate him for the comprehensive quality of his expertise. He enjoys a very good reputation with us and is considered an authority.
Project planning and CE manager, Wemhöner Surface Technologies GmbH & Co. KG
As a world-renowned technology leader, Wemhöner produces machines and systems for the refinement of wood-based materials as well as special systems for automotive and photovoltaic applications. The production takes place in Germany and China. The products are continuously individualised and further developed on behalf of customers. Therefore research and development play a central role at Wemhöner.
Mark Heider: “At Wemhöner we basically have no series production. We only produce individual systems and machines for which the machinery directive is applied. Risk assessment, verification and validation, and CE marking are permanent issues for us.
This is why Lauer CE-Safety GmbH is such a perfect cooperation partner. They offer everything we need from one source. It is also very important for us that we can purchase external support as help for self-help. Each risk assessment is set up in such a way that I can analyse it and produce the next one myself accordingly. We make use of Mr. Lauer’s specialists as consultants, trainers and coaches. It works very well at every level.
Just as the Lauer CE-Safety GmbH was recommended to us by a customer, we can also make a recommendation at any time. Proximity to customers is very important to Mr. Lauer and his people. Every urgent question is answered immediately. A sense of proportion is always applied. And if a problem arises at our customers’ premises, Mr. Lauer will dig himself free and be on hand. We are united by an uncomplicated relationship of trust that has proven itself very well. We can call on the required external expertise at any time to the extent that we need it at that moment. This is optimal for us.”
Mark Heider has worked for Wemhöner Surface Technologies in Herford for 25 years. He is responsible for project planning and is their CE manager. As he notes, the subject of risk assessment has become increasingly important for Wemhöner customers in recent years. The cooperation with Lauer CE-Safety GmbH, which has been accompanying Wemhöner’s development as an external service provider since 2009, is correspondingly close.
