Change in management at VOLLMER KOREA

In early 2023, Jooma Park assumed leadership of VOLLMER KOREA LTD. from former Managing Director Song Ho Hwang. South Korea is a key market in Asia for international sharpening specialist VOLLMER and the Biberach-based machine manufacturer had a presence in the region for over 30 years. In 2016, VOLLMER established its own site in South Korea.

Sharpening specialist VOLLMER, based in southern Germany, has appointed a new Managing Director of the VOLLMER KOREA subsidiary in Seoul. Jooma Park assumed the position of Managing Director from Song Ho Hwang in the spring of 2023. Song Ho Hwang started working for VOLLMER in South Korea in the early 1990s as a dealer under the company name "Palma Trading". In 2016, Song Ho Hwang played a major role in establishing VOLLMER KOREA and was responsible for the very successful development of the Seoul-based subsidiary. He entered retirement in March 2023.

In Jooma Park, an experienced expert and connoisseur of the Asian tool market is taking over the running of VOLLMER KOREA. He joined VOLLMER about a year ago and has shown great commitment in familiarising himself with his new position as Managing Director. At the same time as this change in management, the subsidiary also moved into its new premises in Seoul. The VOLLMER site in South Korea employs three people.

"My goal is to sustainably expand the business of VOLLMER sharpening machines in South Korea and to even more firmly establish our services and digital solutions in the tool manufacturing industry," says Jooma Park.
