How we work

At VTI you can get everything from one source – highest quality from design right up to delivery


Communication is the key to a great relationship. We listen to our customers attentively in order to support them perfectly.


Development and design

„Designed to last“ – VTI products are know for their excellent quality, performance and reliability. Everything originates in our development and design department.



Our prototyping allows us a fast and flexible production of samples for multiple purposes, such as design testing and approval procedures.


Test laboratory

The core of our development department. It accompanies our engineers throughout all stages of a project – from individual test station designs up to prototype and pilot series testing.



In order to be able to produce, we require material. Thus, the quality of our products consequently depends on the performance of our suppliers as well. See how we ensure this and to what else we pay attantion in our procurement process.


Production and assembling

Individual customer requirements demand products that are just as customized. That‘s why you won’t find any ordinary, ready-made products at VTI. Our large machinery allows us to realize even the most complex customer requirements in a short time.

Our good reputation as a quality leader in valve production does not come by chance: It is of utmost importance for us to assure the perfect performance and thus the highest safety of our products. Not a single valve leaves VTI without being tested.
