Voith in Heidenheim
Headquarters of a global enterprise
Voith is firmly rooted in Heidenheim on the eastern Swabian Alb. In 1825, Johann Matthäus Voith started out by employing five workers when he took over his father's locksmith shop in Heidenheim. Today, the Voith Group is a global technology company with a worldwide footprint.
Voith's Heidenheim location is the town’s largest employer. Flexible working hours, facilities such as our "Kindervilla" company kindergarden, "Kinderwelt" kindergarden, and our staff restaurant highlight the attractiveness of the Voith location, one which is steeped in tradition.
The Voith Group has three Group Divisions that are all represented in Heidenheim: Voith Hydro, Voith Paper and Voith Turbo. The Group holding with its central functions is also located in Heidenheim.
