About company

JOSEPH VÖGELE AG, founded in Mannheim in 1836, is one of the oldest industrial companies in Germany. Originally involved in rail construction, the company began building roads in 1925 and developed the world's first road paver, the towed spreader, in 1929. This breakthrough paved the way for the company's expansion into an industry that later shaped its development. Since the relocation to Ludwigshafen in 2010 and the associated quadrupling of production capacity, VÖGELE has been the global market leader in its segment.

Screeds play a key role in the construction of roads and are a decisive factor in the quality of the asphalt pavement. They guide the road construction process with precision and ensure that every section of road meets the highest technical standards. As a core element of machine technology, they are essential for optimum paving performance. JOSEPH VÖGELE AG not only manufactures screeds, but also designs them as high-precision instruments that form the basis for smooth and durable road surfaces.
