Why Choose VACGEN?

With our long history of designing and developing core UHV technologies, we have been the partner of choice in milestone technology advances over the last fifty years.

Because we develop our own designs, control methods and content from the raw materials right through to finished UHV components entirely in-house, we have complete ownership of the product lifecycle. Our world renowned support comes from the knowledge and experience accumulated - our products are truly 'invented here'.

We develop and supply the complete spectrum of UHV components, from the most basic gaskets and flanges through to complex turnkey assemblies. As a UHV 'single source' the depth of knowledge and experience within our company ensures that your energy and passion can focus on the challenges of your project - safe in the knowledge that the UHV content will just work - and keep on working.

Indeed, some VACGEN technologies are still delivering great results decades after installation.
