VVG to become Honsel 03 February 2021

As of 1st January 2021, VVG Befestigungstechnik will now be known under the new name HONSEL Distribution GmbH & Co – having fully merged with the Honsel Group.

VVG and Honsel have been closely linked for a number of years – working together and sharing many resources. Alexander Siefert, managing director at VVG Befestigungstechnik, explained: “We have experienced very unusual times in the last few months, which has resulted in us changing our focus to what is important for our company’s future. With VVG and Honsel already working closely together, the natural decision was to merge VVG with Honsel so they both operate under the same brand.”

Alexander added: “From the customers’ perspective there will be no real changes. The company type and company number will stay the same, as will the VAT and registration numbers. Contracts and/or agreements will also remain the same and customers will still contact the same person. By merging the companies we will simply become an even stronger partner for customers when it comes to fastening technology.”

Honsel Group has more than 90 years of experience in the development, production and sale of high-quality fasteners and processing solutions. Combined with a high readiness to deliver and a comprehensive service.
