Our Veigel Ltd. headquaters are located in Westcott, Buckinghamshire. We take pride in manufacturing most of our products here in the UK while working in close cooperation with our parent company in Germany. Our team of German and British engineers apply their skills and expertise in the field of engineering, design and industrialization to meet the highest of quality in our driving controls for people with disabilities. We are a family company with family values.
At Veigel we are a company rich in German traditions. First in Künzelsau and today at our new location in Öhringen, since the year 1920, we have been developing dual controls for driving school vehicles as well as driving assistance systems for individuals with physical disabilities.
Long since the 1920s, our founder Wilhelm Veigel, was quite aware of the importance of being mobile.
Today, we are market leaders in the industry and export our products from Germany worldwide. With our Veigel products and adaptations, you are sure to benefit from the best of German quality. We guarantee it!

Our company and our employees continuously strive to provide the highest level of performance and quality. Veigel has chosen to prevent dysfunctions and thus avoid unnecessary repair. All our quality requirements are regularly tested. Our standards of quality include recognition of our employees´ commitment as well as sustainable and ecological corporate management.
Since August 2008, Veigel belongs to the exclusive circle of IATF 16949 certified manufacturers. This standard, created for the suppliers of the automotive industry, places the highest demands on quality, flexibility, documentation and innovation. We are proud to meet its requirements. IATF 16949 is based on ISO 9001 qualification which Veigel introduced as soon as 1997. Mid 2014 the first environmental audit proved Veigel’s compliance with ISO 14001 requirements. As we supply car manufacturers, mobility equipment installers and end users with identical products, the technical progress benefits all our customers. They receive authenticated OEM quality equipment.
Our quality awareness
All Veigel business units are IATF 16949, DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001 certified and comply with DIN EN ISO 27001.
Our products received multiple rewards – we take pride in it
When Veigel established its Rehamotive (trademark) division in 2000, a wide range of solutions for the physically disabled already existed. Many of these solutions were invented after the war to help people recover mobility. Veigel Classic and Compact hand controls were amongst them. Many products for individuals with disabilities are functional; their design however is rather unattractive. For the Swyters, it was important that the products for the disabled meet today’s requirements in terms of design. Focusing on design and esthetic aspects proved to be a factor of success. We owe our position as world market leader to our products honored with several awards for design. On the German and American market, Veigel has set new standards in terms of product design!

A long established family-owned company
Tradition and continuity combined with progressive future-oriented development
Since 1920, Veigel has been a family-owned company and this long company history is the foundation of our success. Being a family-run company, we highly respect our employees. Working in an enjoyable family atmosphere is important to us. At present, two generations of the Swyter family proudly and respectfully carry on the heritage of two generations of Veigels. We consider our business partners and customers as being part of our Veigel family and attach great value to respect and continuity also in this regard. Sales targets are part of economic thinking, but our corporate strategy aims for long-term success rather than for short-term sales objectives.
