In November 2021, Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik celebrated its 60th anniversary. For this occasion, the family company donates to 6 organizations that help people locally.
3 ideas helped founder Walter Herrmann to industrialize the young technology of ultrasonic welding: a robust and reliable ultrasonic generator, a screen to make the process visible, and sound insulation for the welding applications that caused unpleasant whistling noises. In 1961 he founded the Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co.KG, Karlsbad/Germany, there are now 500 employees, worldwide, more than 600 with locations in 20 countries.
Walter Herrmann was always the technical pioneer who kept on inventing, while his son Thomas realized early on that he had to internationalize the company and expand it as an attractive employer for Millennials. Since he took over in 2007, both the number of employees and sales have quadrupled. Just recently, Thomas Herrmann received the prestigious "Entrepreneur Of The Year" business award in the Innovation category from Ernst & Young (EY) for the technical advances, but also for an innovative and value-oriented corporate and HR policy.
