The future starts HERE

va-Q-tec stands for vacuum, quality and technology. We are one of the leading suppliers of high-tech products and solutions in the field of thermal energy efficiency and TempChain logistics. Our thermal insulation technology plays a key role in this. Our products are not only used in your refrigerator, but are also used for transporting vaccines, and are even used in outer space. We save energy and resources!

We work closely with temperature and vacuum every day – just like the astronauts in space.

At our two locations in Germany, Würzburg and Kölleda, we primarily manufacture our products. As an international company, we serve customers worldwide.

Become a part of our va-Q crew and work with us on visionary topics that move us forward.
