Safety is one of the key needs for people and the demand for dependable protective shelters is stronger than ever. Industries, especially those based in volatile zones, require steadfast blast protection, while homeowners in disaster-prone areas seek peace of mind. Verona Shelters Group’s (VSG) shelters, priced competitively with an emphasis on value, aim to cater to this growing demand.

Aiming at markets in Scandinavia and Europe, Middle East, India, Asia and Americas VSG’s shelters hold promises of adaptability. Recognizing the varied challenges each region presents, VSG ensures every unit is tailored to its environment to guarantee optimal protection. VSG is an affiliated company of Verona.

Presenting a new era of global safety and security, Verona Shelters Group (VSG) proudly announces the worldwide launch of their high-quality line of protective solutions for civil defence (bomb) shelters, industrial blast protection and infrastructure protection. Rooted in Swiss precision and Finnish innovation, these safety solutions represent an evolution in personal and communal safety, answering the global call for improved security in these times of uncertainty.

Teemu Selin, Head of Marketing at VSG, states: “Globally, countries like Finland, Israel and Switzerland have a very strong history of building national resilience. In Finland only, we have over 50 000 shelters that protect against all threats, be it natural or man-made. To be able to make durable and effective shelters for both authorities and civilians available to everyone, everywhere is our mission. Besides that, hardened facilities for infrastructure and industrial blast protection creates the kind of peace of mind many are looking for.”

Verona Shelters Group (VSG) is a corporation formed from the fusion of Swiss and Finnish protection professionals. Their combined expertise presents an offering that’s more than just brick and mortar: it is a synthesis of decades of engineering expertise, intuitive understanding of the essence of safety and pragmatic approach in finding optimized solutions to our customer’s needs for resilience. As a proof of VSG’s expertise, they have for example built shelters for NATO headquarters in several European countries and globally they have over 3500 projects experience ranging from small “bomb shelters” to blast protection in nuclear power plants.

A New Chapter in Protective Shelters

Designed to withstand both natural and man-made threats – from earthquakes and tornadoes to biochemical attacks and EMP disturbances – these shelters are an instrumental element of any resilience plan. The application range starts from private houses and container solutions and extends to shelters with a capacity to protect more than 10.000 persons.

The core of VSG offering is high-performance filtering systems that purify the air inside the shelter and keep inhabitants safe from air-borne hazards, while advanced ventilation mechanisms maintain a comfortable atmosphere. This is built inside a structure which can withstand blast loads and earthquakes – and it should not be forgotten, that due to climate change extreme weather conditions will cause crisis-like situations increasingly often.

The Global Roadmap Ahead

“Combining the technological know-how from shelter-superpowers, Finland and Switzerland, will create something truly unique for clients globally. I see the future of VSG as a very interesting breakthrough for global safety.”

articulates Ilkka Kivisaari, the CEO of VSG about the spirit of the adventure ahead.

While the protective shelter industry has seen numerous smaller players over the years, what sets VSG apart is the seamless integration of two distinct technological traditions: The Swiss bring their unparalleled precision and craftsmanship, while the Finnish contribute their legacy of robustness against the harshest of elements.
