our history

Launched in 1986

Vektek emerged when two graduate engineers were building hydraulic pump and cylinder assemblies that required reliable workholding for parts to be machined.They found nothing on the market that could maintain their production without constantly breaking down. From their shop in Emporia, Kansas, they designed and built what later grew into Vektek, a world-leading supplier of hydraulic and pneumatic clamping devices.

Vektek's experienced and proven strength in hydraulic component engineering and manufacturing drove a decision in 1982 to introduce their workholding product line to the world. The VektorFlo™ line of swing clamps, work supports and workholding system accessories was received by the market as a reliable high- quality product that was technically supported well above industry standards.

Specializing in power clamping has been the key to success. Steady and consistent expansion came from the focus on a product group and the support elements needed to deliver an entire system. This focus builds a wealth of deep and specific expertise available to our customers. This close cooperation with customers results in better alignment with their critical initiatives and ever-changing needs.

Vektek has grown to become a top supplier for the automotive, heavy equipment and aerospace industries, communicating with more than 500 customers per day. Vektek products are used by medium to high-volume manufacturing companies that demand well-engineered and reliable automation components and system solutions in their factories. They know Vektek products are backed by the largest factory-direct customer service team in the industry.

Vektek achieved ISO-9001 certification in November 2000, became ISO-9001:2000 in September 2003, and has now met the Quality Management Systems requirements for ISO 9001:2015 certification through American Global Standards.
