It is important for all companies, organisations and institutions to actively work on reducing the effects of greenhouse gases. Energy efficiency and is of vital societal importance, and reducing CO2 emissions is even more crucial. Veko’s Carbon Footprint for 2017 is now available. We calculate our CO2 emissions based on direct and indirect fossil fuel use. By repeating these calculations every year, we can gauge the effectiveness of measures taken to limit emissions. We take stock of our energy flows every year by compiling a CO2 footprint. This enables us to identify areas future reductions in energy use.
At Veko we measure our energy consumption per employee. Consumption in 2013, the baseline year, was 5.32 tons of CO2 per employee. By 2017, we had reduced this level to 3.75 tons of CO2 per employee, a reduction of no less than 33.75%. We expect to achieve further reductions by installing solar panels on the second building.

The ADRI-13 detector has been removed from the product range and is no longer available. Fortunately, Veko is able to provide a great alternative, the MD-O detector. Similar to the ADRI-13, this detector is easy to operate, but reacts to both sound and movement. Where the ADRI-13 had to be set up using the detector itself, the MD-O achieves this very easily by means of a remote control. An older detector can be replaced by the MD-O directly. If desired, the settings of the MD-O can be set identically to those of the ADRI-13. The MD-O detector has a five-year guarantee (two years for the ADRI-13). Another advantage of the ADRI-13’s successor is that there are various options to easily integrate the new detector into an existing system (e.g., a connection kit, extra relays). More MD-O specifications. Ordering is easy and convenient. Just send an e-mail to .
Five percent discount in the month of May
Order the MD-O detector and remote control in the month of May and receive a 5% introductory discount. The discount applies only to the installation variant. Free remote control with orders of 20 or more detectors.
To strategically strengthen and consolidate the Fagerhult Group’s position in the professional lighting market as well as adding a unique range of complementary products, Fagerhult has signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares of Veko Lightsystems International B.V., (Veko), a company based in Schagen, the Netherlands. The acquisition is expected to have a positive effect on the earnings per share during 2018 and forward.
Veko designs and manufactures linear LED lighting solutions, LED modules and luminaires with integrated or stand-alone lighting controls primarily for the light industrial segment. Typical application areas include warehouses and distribution centres where we see an increased activity due to e-commerce, plus data-centres, workshops and sports facilities. The company has successfully established a strong sales presence in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the UK.
“Veko has high efficacy linear LED lighting solutions with industry leading performance, as well as a design, manufacturing and installation process that makes the specification of a complex system as simple as possible. The company has delivered very strong financial performance in recent years built upon a strong client base in the Netherlands with success in regional export markets. I am very pleased that Menno Veldboer and Hans Aardenburg will continue to lead the company and build on the strong platform that they and the Veko team have built. With the addition of Veko to our Group we believe we can accelerate Veko’s export growth strategy by leveraging the Fagerhult Group distribution network, initiating new application areas, eg; retail and education as well as capturing significant procurement synergies”, comments Johan Hjertonsson CEO Fagerhult Group.
“The fact that Fagerhult wants to preserve the identity and culture of Veko, so basically nothing changes for our employees and customers, was one of the main reasons for us to make this decision. We think Fagerhult will strengthen our position further and will help us to reach our goal to become market leader in warehouse lighting in Europe.”, says Menno Veldboer, Entrepreneur and Owner Veko.
