VAG’s roots go back to 1872, the year in which Carl Bopp and Carl Reuther set up a special factory that manufactured pumps and heavy-duty valves. In just a few years, Bopp & Reuther was a company with international standing.

Jointly with several other companies from the valve market, a sales company was established which was given the name of VAG-Armaturen GmbH. Already in the 1920s, VAG was the market leader in South America. The frequent introduction of innovative products soon gained the company the reputation of pioneer in the industry.

For decades, VAG has been consistently moving towards becoming a modern, global solution provider for all kinds of shut-off and control valves. Today, the VAG-Group has manufacturing sites in Germany, the Czech Republic, India, China, the USA and South Africa.

Based on our experience and our extensive know-how, we will continue to develop innovative products and solutions for water and wastewater in the future as well.
