We give ideas a profile

The plastic profiles of VKT Sandau have been going out into the world for 25 years now and can be found wherever they have been used in camping vehicles, office furniture or kitchen units in a wide variety of colours, finishes and coverings. As a result, millions of people have probably come into contact with this regional product - maybe without knowing it.

(Almost) anything is possible
The VKT core business is decoration profiles for the furniture industry in a variety of designs: hard or soft, embossed, coated, galvanised, self-adhesive, with or without a protective film, in all colours. Technical profiles and systems for various industrial fields and blind profiles are part of the range of services. The extrusion process enables the production of profiles of any desired length. VKT Sandau can process almost all types of plastic with their ten production machines.

A strong team
VKT Sandau generates a turnover of around five million euros annually and has therefore been growing steadily and regularly for the last 25 years. A key factor in the company's success is the team comprising 40 employees from the region - from the process engineer for plastics and rubber, electricians and fitters, through the industrial business management assistant and financial accountant, to the apprentices who the company is pleased to take on after their training.

Change of Generation
Since the beginning of 2015, Ole Hölscher has been the sole Managing Director of the company, which his father Hans Hölscher built up immediately after reunification in 1990 together with Ulrich Velten, a native of Sandau - and subsequently with his son Andreas. Now the baton has been passed on to the dedicated mechanical engineer. Ole Hölscher has been working at VKT since 2008, knows his business inside and out and has had a decisive influence on shaping the company's fortunes in Sandau.

Maintaining the status quo
The young entrepreneur is continuing the corporate philosophy of the founders, linking it to new activities. "We are a medium-sized, owner-managed company, and that is the way it should stay. I see this as a clear advantage for our prestigious clients. In VKT they find an agile and stable partner who is able to respond very closely to their needs in advance of the actual production."

Tackling the new
In order to position itself as a system supplier that can offer not only extrusion profiles alone, but also in combination with individual parts produced by injection moulding, VKT has been cooperating since the beginning of 2015 with competent partners from the field of injection moulding and tool making. With this, Ole Hölscher wants to set the course for further growth and a stable order situation.
