Our work is never done. We believe in the endless potential of product innovation and evolution. This culture is central to who we are and has driven us for 50 years. We have a history of innovation underpinned by our knowledge and experience, from the first ever A-rated window, to a pioneering approach to recycling.
We continue to evolve our product range and service offering, setting the standard by which
others are measured. What inspires our innovation? You, our customers. Together, we’ll shape future living spaces one window, door or home at a time.
“Our mission is to invest in our people, products and services to deliver the best customer experience. VEKA’s commitment to continuous improvement and ultimately innovation is driven by our mission, and underpinned with strong R&D investment to ensure that we not only maintain but excel in the experience our customers receive.” Dawn Stockell, Marketing Director.
Our Innovation Drivers
We Listen to Our Customers
We focus on areas that matter to you. Our Product Development team works directly with customers and stakeholders to develop solutions for specific market needs.
For example, in recently developing our Variations colour range, we not only focused on getting the colour and the texture of every foil just right, we also looked at how we could deliver the products our fabricators need with workable lead times. It’s the small details that we never forget.
Our Assets & Methods
Our people count; and we recognise this. We hire the most innovative, creative and technical minds, and then train and develop their skills — constantly.
In fact, we make a commitment to investing over 10% of global turnover into R&D to refine our products, develop new ones, and enhance our services.
Each year, our product innovation lab develops 180 product samples, conducts 1,750 tests, and makes over 100 sample boxes for our customers.
We think outside the frame
We don’t just focus on extruding profile, we think outside the frame, so that our customers can focus on the details; from Independent Network, the UK’s first Installer run organisation powered by VEKA, to our digital offering that assists over 120 customers every month, and the UK’s first 3D printed window.
Our business is built on our people. Find out what they have to say about life at VEKA, and what being part of the family means to them.
“VEKA ACT” runs through our DNA. It’s a culture of innovation and going the extra mile to make things happen – whether it’s in our job description or not.
