DOVISTA Polska Sp. z o.o. and the VELUX Group companies are the largest producers and exporters of windows in Poland, with annual turnover of PLN 1.9 billion. They employ nearly 4,250 people, including 2,400 people in the DOVISTA factories.
The owner of the VELUX Group and DOVISTA Group is VKR Holding AS, originally founded in Denmark by Villum Kann Rasmussen. The group includes companies that produce roof windows, skylights, and vertical windows, as well as companies in the solar energy industry.
In Poland, in addition to DOVISTA Poland, VKR owns the following companies: NB Poland, which operates factories in Gniezno and Namysłów, as well as VELUX Poland and Altaterra, which sell windows.
DOVISTA Polska Sp. z o.o. has 8 factories located about 45 km from Gdańsk (in Wędkowy, near Tczew), together forming ‘Window Village,’ where high-quality Rationel and VELFAC brand windows and doors are manufactured. The company is constantly developing and investing in new technologies, at the same time ensuring the highest standards of work safety, quality, and environmental protection.
All orders produced at the factory in Wędkowy are unique, based on individual orders from customers. The produced elements are sold mainly on the Scandinavian markets, and in Great Britain, Ireland, and Germany.
In the last three years (2015-2017), DOVISTA Poland has invested over PLN 100 million in Wędkowy. Most of that amount was earmarked for modernization of machinery and the expansion and development of factories. In addition, in 2016, we opened a powder coating factory- one of the most modern facilities of this type in Europe. In 2018 we opened a new consolidation centre for orders produced at Window Village.
