Services of VTU include the engineering of processing plants, turn-key delivery of special plants, development of new processes as well as software for plant operation and billing.
The synergy of the individual companies lies in the common know-how of process engineering. Due to the tremendous variety of applications and specialists, optimised processes are being implemented for customers in all sectors.
VTU was founded in 1990 in Graz, Austria, as an engineering office for process and environmental technology. At the beginning, all efforts were directed at biodiesel plants; however the range of services has grown to include many different industries. The workforce has increased continually through constant growth.
The company relocated to Grambach near Graz in 2001 because space was becoming too limited.
In 2007, it was possible to acquire power plant specialists along with the founding of VTU Energy. The corporate structure was reorganised under a holding company.
In 2010, VTU Holding acquired a majority holding of prionic GmbH, a leading company in the development, manufacture and application of ionic liquids.
The Group currently counts around 260 highly qualified employees with subsidiaries in Austria (Grambach, Vienna, Linz, Kundl), Germany (Hattersheim/Frankfurt, Penzberg, Braunschweig, Rheinbach, Burghausen), Italy (Bolzano, Mirano), Switzerland (Riehen, Steinhausen) and Romania (Bucharest).
