We focus on Growth on all levels

We wish never to stop getting
better at what we do.

Our goal is to grow profitably. We wish on the one hand to expand our existing portfolio of solutions while on the other, we seek to establish new areas of business. Even during challenging times for the economy. How do we accomplish that? Through a combination of factors that our own standards and those of our customers satisfy: innovation leadership, skilled personnel, competitive cost structures and a solid basis for liquidity.


The future of VENTREX is therefore defined clearly: we would like at all times to drive forward development, technology and production at the highest level. We share this vision with Aalberts, our parent company.

Our Story


VENTREX was founded back in 1949. Since that time, we have grown from a commercial manufacturer of tire valves into a leading global Tier1/Tier2 supplier to the automotive industry.


Fifty years after the company was founded, it was acquired by Christian Planegger, and then expanded in successive stages. Rapid organic growth was accompanied by numerous acquisitions. For example, the natural gas valve business of automotive supplier Robert Bosch GmbH was acquired.


To assure the further development and growth trajectory of the Graz site, VENTREX was integrated into the global network of Aalberts. Today, we work with partners in Slovenia, China, and India, and we sell our products right around the globe.
