That is where our system brands KERMI, PROLUX, SABIANA and VASCO found their beginnings and where they rose to become leading manufacturers. We are proud of these origins. The pioneering spirit of our brands still shapes us today, both internally and externally, and makes us a group of companies that always remains human and close despite all its growth.
