Company Profile

VECOPLAN AG – looking after the environment.

Waste avoidance, conservation of resources and efficient use of recyclable materials are among the most urgent challenges and problems of our time. The importance of environmental awareness and sustainability is increasing on a daily basis.

Our company has been successfully tackling these tough challenges for over 40 years, and today we are a leading partner to many customers in the international timber and recycling business, with numerous subsidiaries and sales offices worldwide. VECOPLAN AG develops, manufactures and markets technologically sophisticated machines and plants for grinding, conveying and processing primary and secondary raw materials in the production process and recycling. 
Our customers benefit from cutting edge technology, made possible by continuous research and development combined with in-house production. Our track record is impressive: VECOPLAN AG is proud of its many patents.

In order to meet the demand for groundbreaking technology and outstanding quality, we have tailored our operations to our customers' markets. Our Service Division complements this structure. Once machines and plant have been commissioned at the premises of our customers, we ensure that everything continues to run smoothly years down the line. VECOPLAN AG delivers the highest sustainable quality standards, whether it be an individual machine or complete plant, according to our customers' specifications.

Foundation of our success:

courage, passion and vision.

Long before the importance of recycling took root in our collective consciousness, Irene Scheidweiler, Hans-Josef Leukel and Jürgen Musche recognised how important efficient reprocessing of valuable materials would be for the future. In 1969, they took a bold and far-sighted business decision, and founded VECOPLAN. Thus a pioneering company was born – today a subsidiary of M.A.X. Automation AG in Düsseldorf – whose undiminished innovative strength has made it a worldwide market leader in the international raw materials and recyclables industry.

VECOPLAN is an acronym of the terms: VErkauf (Sales), COnstruction (Construction) and PLanung (Planning).
