About Völker GmbH

Völker GmbH has developed from a regional provider based in Witten, Germany into a company operating worldwide.

This was possible, because Volker offered the best products within its market segments, that is better healthcare beds and better hospital beds, and became the market leader in Germany.

The basis for this marketing strategy was the vision of Heinrich Volker to create the best of all healthcare beds in order to :

  • offer occupants a life in dignity despite growing immobility
  • to provide nursing staff with as much relief of work as possible
  • offer customers a medical product with little maintenance effort and low add-on costs.

Hill-Rom

In December 2011 -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc., a global leader in patient support systems, announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to purchase Germany-based Völker group. The complementary Völker products would further develop Hill-Rom's global portfolio, accelerate international expansion, and leverage existing sales channels and customer relationships.
"During its nearly 100-year history, Völker has established an impressive reputation for quality and innovative design," said John J. Greisch, President and CEO of Hill-Rom. "Our companies share similar missions and approaches to enhancing outcomes for patients and caregivers. We look forward to expanding the presence of Völker's exceptional products around the world."
"This transaction is a strategic fit for both of our companies," said Heinrich Völker, President and CEO of Völker. "Hill-Rom is a global leader with the reach and capabilities to further enable our mutual vision of transforming healthcare with pioneering products that promote dignified care for patients and efficiency for caregivers."
