A very flat organisation
Vepa is an organisation with an informal atmosphere and short lines of communication. A down-to-earth and headstrong family business. The people at Vepa work and think together in a practical way. For instance, they help decide on the purchase of new CNC machines, help with installation and are therefore able to repair minor malfunctions themselves. So a lot is expected of the production workers. And they like that, because they know they are being listened to. Our employees have a great sense of responsibility and show a lot of initiative. We also make sure you get the right guidance and we always help you with questions. We do it together, which is the basis for good cooperation and efficient production.

A rather stubborn, social and sustainable company
Vepa is one of the top furniture manufacturers in the Netherlands and we operate in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the UK. All products are produced locally by the best people and the most modern machinery, and we are proud of that. We even produce our own raw materials; if someone else fails, we’ll try ourselves.

Interested?
