Company

Finally as of 2016 under one roof

EKM Elektro- & Kabelmontage GmbH and KVG Kabelverlegung GmbH were merged into a single company in 2016 - visco GmbH.

The advantages are obvious

The range of services offered by both companies complemented one another in some cases, but overlapped and in other cases increasingly. The merger will allow us to meet our clients' requirement for a full service process, from network planning to civil engineering, cable laying and installation, available from a single source and with a high proportion of services provided in-house.

Since they were founded, EKM and KVG's business principles have been defined as reliability, quality and innovation. We will continue to pursue this path along with our employees, now under the combined banner of visco. Our employees and joint experience are the foundation for our successful growth in future. 

Together we are creating the infrastructure for the future.
