Vecoplan - more than 50 year a success story

Backed by a great deal of entrepreneurial courage, our small company started in 1969 in Germany’s Westerwald region – and this at a time when recycling was not really an issue for the general public. Irene Scheidweiler, who was only 22 years old at the time, founded the Vecoplan company with two colleagues in Bad Marienberg. She could see the potential behind the new recycling industry. Over the years, Vecoplan decisively developed recycling technology and pushed ahead with many innovations. The company has meanwhile registered many patents for new drive concepts and abrasion & shredding technologies. Since 1995, Vecoplan AG has been a subsidiary of MAX Automation SE in Düsseldorf.
