Road Name History:
Bridges and Piers are an important component of transportation.

A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, usually something that can be detrimental to cross otherwise. There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed and anchored, the material used to make it, and the funds available to build it.

Brand/Importer Information:
Vollmer GmbH & Co.KG or Vollmer is a German manufacturer of model buildings and accessories for use with model railroads. The Vollmer Company was founded in 1946 by Wolfram K. Vollmer (1924–2010) and initially manufactured metal collar buttons. The German currency reform of June 1948 and subsequent economic growth led to a demand for plastic collar buttons and the company introduced plastic injection technology. Vollmer also began to develop plastic model railway accessories and presented a patented catenary system for HO scale model toy trains at the 1949 Nuremberg Toy Fair. By 1954, the company had begun production of HO-scale model houses. In the 1970s Vollmer had a large enterprise that included American models as well as European models.

Vollmer GmbH was based in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen and produced an extensive range of houses, model railway and industrial buildings, vehicles, catenary and general accessories in G, H0, TT, N and Z scales.

In 2014, Susanne Vollmer, director of the company, announced that the company will stop production and shut down business during late 2014. Soon afterwards, in the Summer of 2014, Vollmer and Viessmann announced that Viessmann would acquire the licenses for the brand Vollmer and that from September 2014 onward. the Vollmer products will again be available.
