VT Industries Celebrates 50 Successful Years in Business

Founded in 1956, VT remains family-owned and operated. The company has grown from a single kitchen countertop and bathroom vanity manufacturer to a multi-national corporation with eight manufacturing facilities across North America.
Doug Clausen, VT president, credits the company's success over the years to its employees and their willinness to go the extra mile to satisfy VT customers.
"We have been very fortunate to have a great bunch of employees working for us and all of our success is really due to the great job that they do," Clausen said.
Innovation in manufacturing technology and order processing were also cited by Clausen as an important part of the company's past and future growth. In 1992, VT Industries was named Innovator of the Year by the European Impoerters Association of Woodworking Equipment.
"Being a privately held company allows us to react quickly to changes in the marketplace, which has been a key to our success," Clausen noted. "You have to have a competitively priced, higher quality product than you've ever had before and provide it in a shorter amount of time to succeed in today's business environment."
