125 Years of Lehmann&Voss&Co.

The 8th August of this year, Lehmann&Voss&Co. celebrated its 125th anniversary in Hamburg.

Since 1894 our passion for chemical and mineral specialities has been driving us to constantly strive for new top achievements. Our enthusiasm for innovation and new technologies has ensured during the past 125 years that we have continuously developed highly customised products and solutions in a close cooperation with our customers and partners. 

Because we love what we do. We LuV it. Since 1894.

On the occasion of this anniversary the company celebrated with its employees at the Hamburg Fischauktionshalle on 16th August. The First Mayor of the City of Hamburg, Dr. Peter Tschentscher, opened the festive evening in front of 600 guests. A special eyecatcher in the entrance area was the model of a 3D printed racing sailboat made of a customised material by Lehmann&Voss&Co.

Further information on the 3D printed boat:

Lehmann&Voss&Co supports, as one of the main sponsors and technical development partners, the innovative Italian start-up company OCore. The latter is dedicated to the challenging task of revolutionizing boat building by means of 3D printing technology and build boats that are faster and significantly more cost-effective compared to the traditional process. The printing of a hull for a racing sailboat with a length of 6.5 metres will be an important first milestone for the feasibility of this concept. A special technology has been developed for this purpose which allows first the construction of a hull with complex organic and morphological structures to then manufacture it directly by means of a 3D large-scale printing process. The special design allows a particularly light and stable construction which cannot be achieved by any other processes. The integration of digital processes permits the manufacturing of large components with significantly reduced production costs and a high flexibility.


This is only possible in combination with a material which is suited for these requirements and which must have a low weight in addition to a high stiffness and strength. For this purpose Lehmann&Voss&Co. has developed under the name of LUVOCOM® 3F PAHT CF a carbon fibre reinforced high-performance polyamide, which has been especially optimised for 3D printing processes.
