Vecom's production capacity

With the substantial lifting capacity, the large pickling baths and the on-site possibilities, Vecom ensures that all products can be treated.

Apart from the fixed capacity in Bury, Vecom Sillavan Metal Treatment has access to additional capacity through their network of sister companies in The Netherlands and Belgium. Such capacity could either be utilised by having part of the treatment done at those facilities, or opt for a project related solution by relocating some of the baths to the United Kingdom and as such extend the capacity there.

Vecom can also arrange the transport of the materials.

If the installation to be treated cannot be dismantled, Vecom Projects (an intercompany joint-venture between Vecom Industrial Services and Vecom Sillavan Metal Treatment) will pickle and passivate on-site.

There is a solution available for every situation, so please contact us for more information.

The highest quality, guaranteed

Vecom has as its core value: safe for people, the environment and metal.

Technical offer

Feel free to request an appointment or a technical quote. Depending on the size of the project, we will first make a site visit.
