125 years of the VDW
Milestones from 1891 to the present day

(Hi)Stories off the beaten historical track: come and join us on a time travel excursion through 125 eventful years of VDW. Founded in Hanover in 1891, the VDW ranks among the oldest organisations in Germany’s industrial history. The chronicle below will tell you more about the numerous milestones in the association’s chequered history, which reflect aspects of contemporary events that are sometimes out-of-the-ordinary, at times amusing and in places also of profound significance. The chronicles will be continually supplemented, so it’s well worthwhile looking in regularly!
