As Heinrich Laumann, at the time 40 years old, started with the company VEKAPLAST in Sendenhorst in 1969, nobody could have imagined that the company would develop into one of the most important worldwide leaders of PVC profile systems for windows, doors and roller shutters as well as PVC sheets in only 50 years.
His vision, courage and passion turned VEKA AG into what it is today. Together with his employees, he led the company to extraordinary domestic and international success and growth.
Heinrich Laumann was not only able to motivate people but he was able to win them over with his ideas. He influenced an entire industry with his farsighted decisions and innovations. He always orientated his business towards high quality and thereby positively influencing the development of PVC windows in Germany. Due to his vision and his perseverance, more than 5,600 employees in 38 locations worldwide are grateful for their secure workplace today.
With gratitude and sorrow we say goodbye to a wonderful person and an outstanding personality with a remarkable life’s achievement. We will continue his life’s work with due respect and in his spirit.
Executive Board and staff of VEKA AG
