IVT has over 25 years of experience in manufacturing plastic pipes. Driven by a pioneering spirit and passion, we now impress over 5,000 installers and specialist retail partners with our systems. We strive for continuous innovation. The result is over 30 patents and utility models and a quality management system acc. to DIN ISO 9001:2015 and DIN ISO 9005:2018. Our customers benefit from better quality, reliability and flexibility.
IVT was founded in 1994 and has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Würth Group since 2015. This provides double the benefit for our customers. The flexibility and high customer focus of a medium-sized company. The stability and continuity of a global corporation.

Company-wide whistleblower system
We are committed to our Code of Compliance, thereby showing that we will always act with integrity toward one another and toward our customers, suppliers and other business partners. Information obtained from third parties often contribute to detecting and solving white-collar crime. We have therefore introduced a system that allows anyone who has information about criminal acts or serious breaches of our Code of Compliance to pass it on to us. The system in question is the internet-based BKMS system (Business Keeper Monitoring System). This system based on security-certified software has already been implemented successfully in more than 190 countries by companies, administrations and organizations.
Do you want to give us information via the BKMS? In this case, you can choose whether you want to do it anonymously or by giving your name. We are very interested in open communication. This is why we expressly encourage you to give your name. Any information provided by you, including the legitimate interests of everyone involved, will be treated by us with strict confidentiality.
It is very easy to pass on information to us. You just have to create a P.O. box in the BKMS system. This is designed to contact you if we have any questions. In addition, you can always add more information to your message at any time. The P.O. box also allows you to communicate anonymously if thus desired.
Please note: The BKMS system is used by us only to give you the opportunity to call attention to the following facts: suspected acts of white-collar crime or defined, serious violations of compliance by the IVT GmbH & Co.KG. Any misuse of the system for other purposes constitutes a criminal offense.
If you have any information that you want to pass on to the system, please go to:
Thank you for your cooperation!
