Vormann • 150 years of drilling experience
150 years of drilling experience


VORMANN's tradition dates back to the year 1860. At this time, only shallow wells were customary in this region. With the extension of the central water supply, larger and deeper wells became necessary. VORMANN was one of the first companies that was able to drill deeper wells and therefore benefited from this development.

During the Second World War, the premises in Münster and nearly the entire fleet of machinery and tools were destroyed. With the few that were left to the company, VORMANN practically had to start again from scratch and assembled its first new drilling tool: four trees were turned into a drilling mast and a gun barrel fulfilled its purpose in peacetime as a drill bit, stuck together by an old mining hoist.

Despite this initially simple equipment, in the following period the company quickly redeveloped into a renowned specialist company and gained a reputation in the area of well building and building ground surveys far beyond the borders of the region.

Nowadays, VORMANN is a renowned group of companies, which is known far beyond the German borders.
