The VEKA UK Group celebrates 30 years in the UK - Three decades of quality and innovation

Industry-leading PVC-U systems supplier The VEKA UK Group is marking its 30th year of manufacturing in the UK with a host of celebrations.

Last year alone, The VEKA UK Group extruded more than enough PVC-U profile to circle the globe!

MD Dave Jones has been with the company for 22 of its 30 years and believes that The VEKA UK Group's success can be largely contributed to its 'partnering' approach with customers. “As a company, we understand that our value is entirely in the hands of our customers.
