Many of our product systems are innovative and designed for reducing installation time (and therefore labour costs) for installers.

We focus on maintaining high quality standards for both our products and services. We are an ISO 9001 company and many of our products also have a range of additional national and European certificates and approvals such as RAL and ETAs.

The Walraven Group is a family owned company which was founded in 1942 by Jan van Walraven, the great grandfather of our current CEO. Jan van Walraven, was forced to create his own building materials during the second world war to continue with his work as a plumber. Walraven has grown from a small family company to an international enterprise with production and sales facilities around the world. With over 1,000 employees, Walraven is constantly working on improving products and services to make the jobs of installers easier and more efficient.
Development of new products has always been our priority, with a primary focus on customer satisfaction. All of our solutions are based on a fully integrated approach allowing us to provide total custom solutions for any project. The company’s product offering meets all regulatory requirements of today’s markets. Combined with our expertise and testing capabilities, we can help architects and builders meet all today’s challenges in even the most complex projects.
The Group has production facilities in various countries, with modern machines often designed in-house. Each facility has its own specialisms, which allows products to be manufactured in the most efficient manner possible. Almost all our tooling and moulds are produced in our own tool making facility.
Walraven manages the entire process, from concept to manufacturing, and can quickly respond to developments in the market. We can also deliver bespoke products if required.
