The Vecom Way - the origin

Vecom is a sprout of the Benckiser family and is still led by chemists. The Vecom Group was founded in 1953. The founders, Dr. Willem Verbon (chemical engineer and inventor) and Jo de Vries (chief engineer at Nedlloyd) gave the company its name, Vecombinations; Vecom in short.

The company was taken over by Reckitt-Benckiser in 1970 after a prosperous period of growth. In 1988, Vecom became independent again through a management buyout. After the sale of the shipping business unit in 1995, it became a family business, specialized in metal surface treatment and cleaning products for the metal, process, food and shipping industry.

After a reorganization in 2017, Vecom has taken a new path, focusing on innovation and working in a more environmentally friendly way. We are continuously working on process improvement. The Vecom branches are spread throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and England.
