Private shareholders led by Quartum Kapital have sold Vinylit to Laumann group / VEKA

Vinylit is a rapidly growing manufacturer of environmentally sustainable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) façade systems for mobile homes and residential buildings with market-leading product and material expertise as well as diversified product range and European distribution presence. The product portfolio comprises extruded and coated PVC façade profiles as well as required accessories. Vinylit has an excellent and longstanding relationship with a broad base of over 500 existing customers in the field of building material distributors, processors and manufacturers of mobile homes in Europe.

VEKA is a globally operating manufacturer of PVC profiles and sheet systems and a key supplier to Vinylit. Founded in 1969, VEKA has a global workforce of 6,000 employees, 1,400 of which are at the group headquarters in Sendenhorst, Germany. VEKA is globally present through its offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

The merger will not only strengthen Vinylit’s international distribution network but also its production capacities by leveraging VEKA’s unique extrusion know-how and facilities. Both companies look forward to creating multiple interfaces with their respective core businesses.
