It is with great sadness that profine UK announces the passing away of Keith Vast at his home on Wednesday 29th July, following a prolonged period of ill health.
In April 2020, Keith retired from profine UK, yet he was largely responsible for the design and development of the KÖMMERLING 70 window and door system, which today remains a class leader in terms of performance, quality and design. Keith’s career with the business extended beyond 20 years in the technical department and he was very well respected by customers, suppliers and colleagues alike.
Andrew Charlesworth, head of technical for profine UK commented: ‘As profine continues to grow strongly within the UK and in now establishing a local manufacturing base for the first time, we trust this a fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication Keith showed over the years. But now our thoughts go out to his family and his wife Joyce during this difficult time.’

I would just like to say how sad I am to hear of the loss of Keith Vast a dear friend of over 30 years, a clever and talented designer. Keith was a gentleman, who would help and advise if you faced adversity and always offer support and suggestions you could rely on to help your progress. He will be sadly missed by myself and all those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him, rest in peace Keith.
My thoughts are with his wife and family at this very sad time.
