At Vanden, we are passionate about plastic recycling, and changing the wider perception that post-production plastic is in fact, a valuable material that powers future manufacturers and is anything but ‘waste’.

In order to engage the entire business, and educate our customers, we have developed a set of core values that shapes our culture, determines our direction, and acts as a reminder as to Vanden exists.

We are proud of these assets and invite you to take a look at our values, as well as our vision and mission statements.


Vanden Values



We pull together as one unit, not just with those in front of us, but with all of our colleagues spanning multiple continents and cultures. We seek honesty and excellence to bring out the best in each other and do so without ego. Our collective knowledge and willingness to question is our superpower.


Add Value

In absolutely everything we do. We add value to our people, customers and product through constant education and optimisation. Vanden exceeds expectations in the Service of our customers, using each encounter as an opportunity to sharpen our skills and add more value than anyone else. When in doubt, we ask ourselves – “Am I adding value?”



Challenge ourselves and each other to learn new things and improve our skills. Be curious and industrious to redefine the boundaries of our knowledge, service and market. We’re proud of our battle scars as our failures will always be the greatest opportunity for growth.



Never afraid to get our hands dirty! We take pride in exercising absolute ownership over the outcome of every task or challenge. We appreciate the power of forming a plan before taking action and jump at the opportunity to take the bull by the horns when we do.


Enjoy the Ride

It only happens once! We can’t always be serious and limit ourselves to be “business as usual”, so we encourage everyone to put their personalities into everything they do.



Live every day with an attitude of gratitude!
