On April 1st, 1993 two company founders Iginio Voorhorst and Eric Bruil hit upon the idea to develop an air-suspension for Commercial Light Vehicles. At the time there were only air-suspension products for the heavy truck range.
This lead to the founding of the company VB-techniek.
With a sound business plan and with the extensive knowledge and experience of the founders, VB-techniek has grown into a flourishing company. Celebrating its 12½ anniversary in October 2005, VB-Techniek changed her name into VB-Airsuspension.
The goal was to develop a complete, high quality and fair priced air-suspension system for light commercial vehicles. This system had to be assembled simply and easily without having to cut, weld or change the existing chassis. In the future it had to be possible to send a specific air-suspension kit to trained dealers and importers, which would be easily mounted onto a specific vehicle. During the first years VB-techniek focused itself on the development and the marketing of their product.
In view of the growing number of sold kits the
air-suspension for light commercial vehicles proved to be a great success. Today VB-Airsuspension has built up a network of dealers in The Netherlands and importers/ distributors throughout Europe that can mount air-suspension kits.
In the fall of 2005 VB-Airsuspension has founded her first foreign establishment: VB-Airsuspension France S.A.R.L.
In the summer of 2006 a second foreign establishment has been added: VB-Airsuspension UK Ltd.
Internationally we deliver on a regular basis to all 25 European Union member countries as well as Swiss, Turkey, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, China, Australia, USA, Brazil and South Africa.
On December 12th, 2013 VB established themselves in North America by placing an office in Elkhart, IN of the United States. This office continues to be the North American headquarters as the business continues to expand each year.
