VAG Water Systems (Taicang) Co., Ltd. is a foreign invested manufacturer in China, owned 100% by the VAG-Group, promoting and distributing all VAG solutions and providing the technical support and after-sales services to Chinese customers.
As VAG China is part of the VAG-Group, the quality level of products, know-how and service is in line with those of the other production facilities e.g. in Germany, Czech Republic, India and the USA. VAG China has set up sales offices in most of the big cities in China and in addition to that, a professional after-sales team in each sales region.
In 1990, the first VAG valves were delivered to the Chinese market. The valves were plunger valves for flow and pressure control in the gravity flow transmission lines in Chengdu, and up to now have been operating trouble-free. In 2004, VAG China was established as a subsidiary company of the VAG-Group. Only four years later, VAG China launched VAG’s core product, the VAG EKN® Butterfly Valve. In 2007, VAG China started the production of resilient-seated gate valves (DN 40 - DN 300) and penstocks (from 200 mm to 2400 mm). Two years later, the opening ceremony of the new plant was held, and the new production line of heavy butterfly valves put into operation. The VAG Taicang Visitor Center is completed and open to customers. In the following years, China produced more and more valves and became a reliable supplier for valves in almost all of Asia.
