Vetedy in a few words

VETEDY is the creator, manufacturer and owner of the Softline & Technideck decking systems and Techniclic cladding systems.

The three systems with invisible fastening have proven their technicality, durability and precision over the years since Vetedy was founded in 1999.

Today, VETEDY is a family group with an international dimension, present troughout the world: Luxembourg, Belgium, Cameroon and Indonesia.

The beginning of the story

In 1998, the founder of Vetedy was asked by an architect to design a “garden floor” and realized that there was no decking system with hidden fasterners on the market.

At the request of the architect, a resinous wooden deck is then installed at the client’s place, all of course fixed in the traditional way with screws. Dissatisfied with the results and convinced that the term garden flooring makes sense, Vetedy was born on 20/12/1999. Many months of research and development followed in order to invent a system that would allow the deck boards to be fixed invisibly like a parquet floor.

Vetedy’s objective was twofold: to create the need for garden parquet (called decking) and to make the product as noble and durable as indoor parquet. At that time, Vetedy, composed of the first two letters of three names that are certainly not insignificant (Veronique, Terry and Dylan), simply wished to meet a local demand but very quickly, several customers convinced the founder to see further, bigger.

Vetedy’s international development

First international exhibition, first success. The idea of developing Vetedy internationally takes shape. Thanks to a lot of research, exchanges and especially the support of a person who has made Africa his passion, the idea of associating wood with the fastening system starts to make sense. It was especially important to find wood species that are naturally durable for outdoor and above all have an exceptional stability to overcome the constraints of an hidden and non-mechanical fixing.

After several conclusive tests, Vetedy decided to set up in Africa in order to control the quality of its wood supplies. In parallel, a small makeshift production workshop at the back of a carpentry shop is set up and a partnership with a plastic-composite injector is established for the production of the fastening clips. It is after long months of research, tests, doubts but above all perseverance and determination that the Softline system was patented in 2001. The promotion of a complete decking system with hidden fasteners then took off.

The pursuit of internationalization and expansion of the product range

The growing demand for Softline decking has led to the need of diversification of the supplies and, above all, an expansion of the range. Thus, Vetedy decides to establish itself in Indonesia and to build its production plant in Belgium.

A few years later, the Techniclic product, a hidden fastening system for wood cladding, the little brother of the Softline system, was born. The cladding solution is a big hit with Vetedy’s current customers.

The latest innovation is the Technideck, an intuitive aluminum decking system that has all the qualities needed to revolutionize the decking world once again.
