Niemann by Emotion


Company formation
Friedrich Wilhelm Wilke

Am 15. September 1832 begann Friedrich Wilhelm Wilcke mit seiner Tischlerei. Damals stand die Fertigung von Geräten, Einrichtungen und Möbel für die Aussteuer im Vordergrund.

From 1900
Product extension
Things of daily life made of wood

In the years that followed, the focus continued to be on carpentry and woodturning and what was needed for daily life and survival, for example, stairs, spinning wheels and scythes.

From 1950
New furniture designs
Wonder years with a flair for new furniture designs

In the 1960s and 1970s, Niemann produced furniture such as shelves or sideboards in the typical designs of the time, such as kidney tables, buffets and chair frames.

from 1975
Investments in new operating structure and machinery

Niemann's name soon stands for indiviual variety according to special requirements that are met. Convinced by Niemann's quality, large furniture manufacturers are now among the clientele. They can receive custom-made products in any quantity and do not have to be satisfied with the "off the shelf" offer.
The Niemann company has been successful with this concept and is finally one of the German market leaders in the production of high-quality plastic-coated furniture parts and composites and manufactures front parts and sheet goods. The name Niemann has a steadily growing and sonorous meaning.

Innovation Award
Innovation Award Plasma Technology Edge Processing

Plasmatechnik ist ein Verfahren, das die Firma Niemann erfunden, patentiert und einen Innovationspreis erhalten hat. Die mit einer speziellen Funktionsschicht versehenen Kanten werden mit dem Träger verbunden durch große Hitze, die für Sekundenbruchteile in der barcodegesteuerten Kantenmaschine aufblitzt. Das Ergebnis ähnelt der Laser-Technik. Bei ganz ähnlichem Verarbeitungsergebnis ist eine technische Aufrüstung mit diesem System wesentlich günstiger, als eigens eine etwaige Laser-Kantenmaschine anzuschaffen.

Insolvency: Business risk

However, Niemann's unique selling point - the almost proverbial enormous range of products in the finishing of furniture parts - also involves an entrepreneurial risk that is difficult to calculate. A lot of "dead capital" in the form of decors and edgebands was purchased in immense variety and variation possibilities and lay in stock. A financial imbalance arose, which ultimately led to insolvency.

Emotion Holztechnik
A new chance

During the insolvency, the traditional company was saved from plant closure in the person of Dominik Entelmann. He did not want to give up his valuable supplier and the competences associated with it. In addition, the successful start-up entrepreneur saw great potential in Niemann's future. By investing in the employee segment, Niemann is now building on dynamic, modern employees who can rely on the experience of long-established employees. In addition, Mr. Entelmann is investing in a future-oriented machine park in order to be able to supply the newly established B2B contacts quickly and with high quality. Niemann by Emotion looks forward with confidence to an exciting future with exciting challenges.
