A success story in mechanical engineering, right out of Saxony.
VSM GmbH Maschinen- und Anlagenbau is the successful result of an entrepreneurial idea. In 1996 in Wolkenstein, amongst the Erzgebirge mountains and literally from a garage, Gunter Bindemann started his own assembly and service company for mechanical engineering in Saxony with just three employees. He had developed a vision of setting up his own efficient service company for the industry. The entrepreneur had recognised that it would be attractive for many mechanical engineering companies to make use of external services, and not to have to provide all the resources themselves. It was a quick rise to the top. Bindemann and his company successfully offered services in the growing mechanical engineering industry and developed the Bindemann brand. Maschinenbau Bindemann GmbH, which is today managed by Gunter Bindemann's son, specialised in the construction of machines. By 1999 the growing mechanical engineering company had already moved into its own workshop with more employees. Soon, customers were requesting the company to manufacture machines according to their own individual requirements and based on drawings made by them. As a result of this renewed growth, VSM GmbH Maschinen- und Anlagenbau was entered in the commercial register in 2001, the company invested in new production facilities in the areas of machine mechanics and machine electronics, and moved to a new location. Above all, VSM specialises in packaging machines and special machines. Complete modules and components could now be implemented for customers. A quantum leap for the young mechanical engineering company was the move to its very own production facility in Großrückerswalde in 2009. From here, growth was accelerated and production processes made more efficient. In 2012, Gunter Bindemann decided to break new technological ground with LaTeBi - Lasertechnologie Bindemann GmbH. Today, in retrospect, the successes achieved sometimes seem quite incredible. It’s something Gunter Bindemann and his team are very proud of. Today, the three companies - VSM as a mechanical engineering company in the packaging machine segment and in the special machine segment, Maschinenbau Bindemann GmbH as a service company, and Latebi as a laser technology company - work hand in hand.
