The Vecoplan Group is based in Bad Marienberg (Rhineland-Palatinate). The Group ranks as a leading international provider of systems and components for the processing of wood and waste in the manufacturing and recycling industries. The company is a specialist in the shredding and processing of primary and secondary raw materials. As a system-provider, Vecoplan develops, designs and produces complex machines and plants.
Vecoplan operates in three business areas:
- Wood (wood, biomass and pelletizing)
- Waste (domestic and commercial waste, alternative fuels and the cement industry)
- Recycling (paper, plastics and special applications).
Vecoplan operates subsidiaries in the USA, the UK, Spain and Austria, as well as numerous sales and service locations worldwide. In 2015, Vecoplan took over a minority share in the subsidiary Vecoplan LLC and increased its shareholding to 100 percent. This makes direct operating control of the company possible as part of the integration into the Group.
The company also has its own R&D department in Bad Marienburg (Rheinland-Pfalz), and in 2014 opened the world’s largest and most advanced, state-of-the-art technology center for the environmental technology and recycling industry at its headquarters. In addition, Vecoplan operates research and training centers (technical schools) in North Carolina (USA).
