Export activities increase very rapidly. VAG is the market leader in South America. Today, VAG is represented around the world.
Production is running at full speed in the rebuilt workshops.
The resilient seated gate valve, ‘BETA’, is introduced to the market. This gate valve is still synonymous with resilient seated gate valves.

Quality Policy / Processes

Without VAG, water would not be supplied and distributed the way it is today. Wherever water is treated, moved, stored and distributed, VAG's gate valves and butterfly valves, plunger valves and hollow-jet discharge valves, control valves and hydrants play an important role. There is barely a water, pump or wastewater treatment plant that does not use a VAG valve. Durability and decades of operational reliability matter. Repairing or replacing valves that often weigh several tons, such as those used in dams, is very costly. The supply and distribution of water and the treatment of wastewater are very demanding operations. Valves must be able to withstand high water pressures and extreme temperature and weather conditions. Whether they are used in a desert or a tropical climate, the material must suit the environment. We know from our customers that our valves work reliably for up to fifty years. In fact, some of our valves have been working for more than one hundred years!

Aim / Vision / Mission

In the near future, water will be the topic that moves the world. Alternatives can be found for fuel, but not for water. In the world’s hotter regions, drinking water is already more valuable than petrol. In Europe, water is increasingly used to generate energy. Water is and will remain one of our most important resources. Only the most innovative of companies will play a role on the global water and wastewater markets. The arid countries will continue to dry out, while the wetter countries will flood more frequently. Modern and sensible water management—one of our main goals—is the only way to keep the balance. Creative ideas and sensible solutions will pave the way. In a few years, VAG will be one of the key players on the water market because we will have recognised and responded to the requirements of our international customers on time. New requirements need new systems. We are working towards the market of 2011 today. We are always one step ahead, which is why we can offer you tomorrow's solutions today.
