Vektek is a precision workholding Specialist. Our rugged, dependable hydraulic and pneumatic swing, link, and edge clamps, work supports, cylinders and pallet fixture accessories have earned an industry-leading reputation in medium and high-production industries.

Vektek is a world leading supplier of hydraulic and pneumatic clamping systems for the metalworking, tool & die and mold industries. One of a family of privately held manufacturing businesses, Vektek was established in 1974 by two graduate engineers to build hydraulic pump, machine part and cylinder assemblies in Emporia, Kansas.
Early success demonstrated Vektek’s proven strengths in hydraulic component engineering and manufacturing which drove a decision in 1982 to introduce an OEM product line to the Emporia facility. By 1986 the VektorFlo® line of swing clamps, work supports and workholding system accessories was receiving enthusiastic market response as a high quality product produced and technically supported well above industry standards. Vektek also established an expanded direct sales and customer service office in St. Joseph, Missouri at that time.
Vektek has grown to become one of the top international suppliers of workholding products and services primarily to Automotive, Heavy Equipment and Aerospace, dealing with well over 300 customers per day in virtually all sectors of the economy. Our products are used by medium/high volume and high equipment-availability manufacturing companies demanding well-engineered and reliable automation components and system solutions in their factories, and are backed by the largest factory-direct customer service team in the industry.
A specialist philosophy has greatly contributed to Vektek’s steady and consistent growth. This comes from our experience that a focus on power workholding builds a wealth of deep and specific expertise that becomes an important part of the overall value offered by the Company. In an age of rapidly advancing product and process technology, sharing specialized know-how in close cooperation with our customers results in better alignment with their critical initiatives and an improved understanding of their ever-changing needs. We feel this is vital for building long-term mutually successful customer relationships.
