Location in Koelleda celebrates 15th anniversary
Since its foundation in August 2008, the site in Koelleda has grown continuously, increasing the production area almost tenfold. Financial support from the federal state of Thuringia and the EU, as well as the optimal logistical location with proximity to the A71 motorway and airports between Leipzig and Erfurt have positively influenced the growth of the last 15 years. Today, more than 170 employees develop, manufacture and distribute many millions of vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) and hundreds of thousands of high-tech boxes for the temperature-controlled transport of a wide variety of products, such as food or medicines, on the approximately 50,000 square metre site in a building area of around 17,000 square meters. va-Q-tec is also well prepared for further growth in Koelleda – over 15,000 square meters of the site are still undeveloped and can be used for future production facilities.
Award of the certificate of honor by the IHK
For more than 20 years now, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce has been awarding companies with a certificate of honor for their many years of existence and entrepreneurial success. The award was presented by Thomas Fahlbusch, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Training and Further Education at the IHK.
Dr. Joachim Kuhn, founder and CEO of va-Q-tec, received the certificate on behalf of the whole va-Q-tec team and is pleased: “This honorary certificate is a great award for va-Q-tec and all employees. Together we have achieved a lot of success in recent years – and mastered numerous challenges as a team. Kölleda is an enormously important location for va-Q-tec, without whose performance the growth of last years would not have been possible. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to explicitly thank all employees in Kölleda and look forward to creating further innovations with the team.”
