A family history – built on concrete for 125 years. Even for us, as part of this history, this sounds quite imposing. But a long company tradition is not necessarily a guarantee for a successful future. This can only be achieved together, as a team, every day anew. Therefore, it is important for us to take a look at the different aspects in a family business today, to present interesting projects and involved actors, and also to impressively showcase the handiwork. This book stands for that. It has been a great pleasure for us to realise it together, may it also provide you with entertaining moments.

This year, POMMER has been in the tradition of concrete construction for 125 years. This was an opportunity for us to celebrate together, to remember the past and at the same time to look ahead.

This will continue to accompany us and is motivation for us to fill the next pages with content in the coming years.

In the spring of 2022, we provided human, financial and very practical support for the food aid package campaign, which the St. Trinitatis Church in Leipzig launched for Ukraine refugees who were not yet able to register in Leipzig.

Thanks to the release of flour by the Dresdener Mühle – as one of our clients – we were able to donate more than 2.3 tons of flour to the Trinitatis Church to complete the food aid packages.
