va-Q-tec AG (VQT) - DE



From startup to global player

Pioneer in the insulation industry

The success story of va-Q-tec began in 2001 with a spin-off from ZAE Bayern, the Centre for Applied Energy Research, in Würzburg. This is where CEO Dr. Kuhn and Head of Development Dr. Caps started working on the development of new innovative insulation materials.

Since then, the young high-tech company has been pioneering the revolutionary development and application of energy-saving and environmentally friendly vacuum insulation panels (VIPs). As the innovative insulation solutions close market gaps in different industries, va-Q-tec has had a very successful business development. Other products such as high-performance thermal packaging and airfreight containers as well as heat and cool storage elements (PCM) followed.

The global market demand for va-Q-tec products is rising, driven by the global demand for increased energy efficiency in products of daily use. This made va-Q-tec an innovative highly-experienced manufacturer and supplier of vacuum insulation panel systems not only for the construction sector, but also in areas like pharmaceutical logistics, household appliances, technology & industry and automotive.

New locations and worldwide growth

The unique character of va-Q-tec is evident in the rapid growth of the company. The headquarters in Würzburg, Bavaria, have a production area of over 4,500 m² with excellent facilities for thermal testing procedures, allowing official validation through heat physics experts.

va-Q-tec has additionally been manufacturing products at a second production facility in Kölleda, Thuringia, since 2009. The development from a start up to a medium-sized, international company is an important milestone for va-Q-tec. The founding of subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, South Korea and the USA has made va-Q-tec a global player. 

Hidden champion with many years of experience

va-Q-tec now has over 15 years of experience with the manufacturing and processing of VIPs and is regarded as a hidden champion and the largest VIP manufacturer in the Western world. Due to well-founded thermal consultation, reliable customer service and the development of customized solutions, va-Q-tec can expect a continuing positive company development.
