Value Engineered Products (VEP) was founded in 1990 to serve mechanical contractors in the Rocky Mountain region. Since its inception, the company has distinguished itself as a leader in product design and supply chain management. The company built on its positioning and now markets its products throughout the United States. Its unique product design for copper pipe as well as load bearing industrial pipe has solidified its market position in serving customers in all industries. From plumbing to commercial to industrial, VEP has built upon its reputation for meeting ever-changing job site requirements, flexible and responsive service, and innovative product design.
Seranum Holdings, Inc. acquired VEP in 2014 from its founders. Barry W. Schmitt, a 30 year veteran of the insulation industry was named CEO. Barry is a graduate of Villanova University and holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. He has held numerous senior business development positions over the years, and most recently was President of Rocky Mountain Marketing Specialists, a sales organization serving the insulation and HVAC market. VEP has maintained continuity since the change in ownership by retaining talented staff members who our business partners have been accustomed to working with over the years. The team is excited about the future and eager to grow with our customer base, striving to deliver the excellent products our customers have come to expect.
VEP is a member of the Manufacturer Standardization Society (MSS), which is the technical voice of the valve and fitting industry. It is an organization dedicated to the improvement and implementation of standards for the valve, pipe fittings, pipe hangers, and pipe support industry. VEP is one of just 17 companies in the US dedicated to setting the standards for this industry segment.
VEP is also now certified as a Woman Owned / Disadvantaged Business Enterprise by the Small Business Administration, allowing it to support contractors competing for projects with Minority requirements.
Value Engineered Products continuously strives for excellence in our people, product, process, and service. From innovative products to responsive service to manufacturing quality, VEP is committed to Excellence by Design in every aspect of its business.
