The association today

In its 20 years of existence, an increasing number of domestic and foreign companies have joined the association in the course of a growing European integration. In 1990, the association changed its organizational structure in order to meet with the requirements of the European market. This change became "official" in 2002, when the association eventually changed its name to VESF, Verband der europäischen Straßenfräsunternehmungen (Association of European road milling enterprises).

Owing to the high degree of acceptance from both the contracting companies and the machine manufacturers and suppliers, today our members include more than 50 leading companies from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland.

For the members' meeting in autumn 2017 the VESF hosted 85 participants from 9 nations.
