W. Vershoven GmbH looks back on a long history that started in 1938: At that time Wilhelm Vershoven founded the W. Vershoven Signal- und Telefonbau GmbH in Essen. The company produced devices and equipment for mining.
Wilhelm Vershoven developed an innovative telephone switchboard for miners that was used in the 1950s in all Ruhrgebiet coal mines.
After the death of the company’s founder in 1963 Vershoven shifted its focus to new business areas: control of conveyor belts, coal planes and tread tracks for underground use.
The company moved to Essen in a new building at Riedinger Street in 1970.
Since 1979, we have been doing business as W. Vershoven GmbH.
In the 1980s, enduring sales problems in the mining industry forced us to pursue new paths. Since that time we’ve been designing and manufactured waterproof and explosion-proof devices like telephones, switches and smoke detectors for the chemical industry for offshore facilities and for refineries. The export business has taken on an ever growing importance for us: we produce our
devices for customers around the world.
There was a change in the top management in 2005 and Torsten Stickdorn became the manager. Besides communication engineering the focus have been increasing on safety engeneering.
So we also produce for many important company of this industry today.
