The Company and its History
Founded in 1898 and with over a century of experience, VS is one of the leading suppliers to educational institutions worldwide. Among the significant contributions to the school furniture market is the development of German school benches, which were already awarded prizes for innovation at the world exhibition in Belgium in 1910. From the beginning on, VS did not only focus on the furniture itself, integrating modern influences, such as teaching materials by Maria Montessori into its portfolio. VS continued the cooperation with renowned partners such as the architect Günter Behnisch and the designer Verner Panton. These cooperations result in successful products such as the Panto family of chairs, one of the most popular chairs in the educational market today.
Yet another example is the cooperation with Günter Behnisch and the joint development of an award winning office desk in 1986. Since then, VS also operates successfully in the office and object market and is proud to be the preferred furniture supplier of institutions such as the German Federal Parliament, the European Central Bank and private companies such as BMW AG, Allianz Suisse AG and Deutsche Bank AG.
Founded in 2004, VSME continues the tradition of excellence and innovation that VS represents. As the VS representative in the Middle Eastern Region, VSME offers a wide portfolio of products ranging from original school and office furniture from VS to customized furniture for local markets. Furthermore, the VSME team has strong capacities in fields of consulting, planning, logistics and installation.
Based on its independence and reliability as family-owned business for over a decade, VS stands for a socially and environmentally sustainable production. Our products – exclusively made at the Germany headquarter – are of the highest standard regarding quality, design and ergonomics.
In order to maintain these standards continuously, VS holds a number of certificates, among others the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2004. Additionally, all products are bearing the GS symbol for tested safety in accordance with German standards. Exceeding the requirements of common certificates, VS is also a proud member of the United Nations Global Compact, a group of over 8.700 institutions aiming to improve social standards worldwide.
