About us

The companies in the VTU group design plants for the process industry, particularly for the sectors of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, chemistry, metallurgy, oil and gas.
VTU was founded in 1990.

Due to consistent growth, the range of experience has expanded, and the number of customers and employees has continually grown. Today, highly qualified engineers work at more than 20 locations in Europe – Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Romania - on planning tasks for projects all over the world.

Awards and certifications

VTU Engineering is DIN ISO 9001 certified since 1998, and has a SCC certificate for the area of chemistry.
As an expert in the area of plant and process optimisation, VTU won an award for an energy efficiency project, together with the customer Borealis, in the scope of the initiative “klimaaktiv”.
A range of awards for VTU as an employer confirms an excellent workplace culture: up to now, Hewitt has awarded a prize to the company three times, as an “Attractive employer”, and VTU was also honoured with the quality seal “Great Place to Work” three times.
Furthermore, VTU Engineering was given an award by the Austrian Minister for Economic Affairs, for extraordinary services in the associated economic sector, and is therefore allowed to hold the Federal coat of arms in business dealings.
