Strategic alliance Vepa and Drentea

The two well-known furniture manufacturers Vepa the furniture factory and Drentea Future Office continue together.

Note: this cooperation only concerns the Netherlands and therefore does not affect the collection in the UK and Ireland.
In the UK and Ireland the complete collection of Vepa and Drentea is already marketed by Nomique. And that will not change.

The two well-known furniture manufacturers Vepa the furniture factory and Drentea Future Office continue together. They multiply strength, share knowledge and merge craftsmanship in the conviction that this cooperation is beneficial for the brands, the people, the dealers and the market. Together, Vepa and Drentea will be the sole office furniture manufacturer that produces the complete range of furniture locally, in the Netherlands.

Time for the next step
Vepa and Drentea both started small. Drenthe furniture makers in heart and soul. With wood and steel they acquired a place in the office furniture market. That market was large, they didn’t see each other very often. But in recent years, they have been growing closer together.

With confidence they are now making a leap to a great, shared future. Doing business together, one total collection, combining knowledge and expertise as well as reinforcing the passion for sustainability. One strong brand that can serve the market even more professionally.

Two locations, two directors, one strong organisation
Vepa and Drentea will continue together as one strong commercial organisation. Bert Top and Janwillem de Kam together form the management board. The current production locations in Emmen and Hoogeveen (the Netherlands) will continue to exist and the commercial organisations will merge. This creates one strong team that will support the market in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and Ireland even better. The legal merger is expected to take place in 2021.

VDB Group
Vepa and Drentea are part of the successful VDB Group, which pioneers circular innovations and has the most modern factories in the Netherlands. Be by Beta, De Lockerfabriek, Eromesmarko, Facility Express, Green Furniture Circle, Nice Price Office, Nomique and Zooi are the other brands in the group.
