‘If nobody knows,
Vecom does’

The Vecom way - in practice

Our core value is: safe for people, the environment and metal. Our customers benefit from 70 years of leading experience in metal surface treatment and can feel 100% assured of the correct treatment of their precious metal parts, products and installations.

Clients of our customers often indicate that they would like to have their products and installations treated "the Vecom way"


The highest quality guaranteed for surface treatment

The Vecom way also means that procedures have been laid down for our customers. This guarantees equal results with the same metal contamination. When a new procedure is required, it is tailor-made.

Research into the metal alloy is done through a Metal Analyzer and into the contamination is done in the in-house laboratory of Vecom. If there is no suitable cleaning product on the market, we have it made on our own recipe, also in-house. This allows us to deliver the highest quality time and again without exception.


A natural cooperation

More than 95% of Vecom's customers remain long-term customers. Vecom gives its customers continuous insight into the progress and therefore sees its customers more as colleagues. Vecom works together with its customers to offer the best for their customers. The lines are short, the contact is established quickly. Customers experience Vecom's specialists as particularly friendly and helpful. The obvious collaboration is something they are quickly used to.

How environmentally friendly does Vecom work?

Vecom knows how chemistry works. That is why Vecom also takes its responsibility.

Waste water treatment

In order to minimize the impact of released waste water streams on the environment, Vecom adheres to the strict codes of practice which are clearly stated in their environment agency permit. The waste and residual streams are treated on site to neutralise any acid prior to discharge. The remaining solid waste is disposed of via an accredited waste processor and all documents stored for compliance with our environmental permit.


Vecom continues to search for more people- and environmentally friendly solutions and we are challenged daily by our customers, suppliers and government agencies to develop safer and environmentally friendly products and services.


"Being responsible for the cleaning of valuable installations and components also requires the highest quality from your supplier"

The in-house laboratory

100% responsibility is taken for the chemistry used. Our in-house laboratory also works continuously on more sustainable and innovative cleaning agents and we find a suitable solution for every challenge.

Vecom certification

Through these certifications, Vecom customers know that quality is guaranteed, among which Quality ISO 9001:2015.

Issued cleaning certificates

After carrying out a treatment such as pickling and passivation, it is possible to get a Vecom certificate included. This certificate indicates the Vecom standards and procedures used and the test results.
