is the German term for combine and was used as name prefix when describing the leading ⇒V.E.B. unit of any given group after the formerly used designation for that cause (⇒V.V.B.) had been dropped.
For example the V.V.B. Feinkeramik Kahla later became the Kombinat V.E.B. Porzellanwerk Kahla. While both of those names described the whole group of production units, the name V.E.B. Porzellanwerk Kahla alone (without the Kombinat addition) only described the single factory on Kahla.
