Background to VIC
The business was established in 1964 by the Perini family in Fabriano, central Italy and initially specialised in the design, production and distribution of customised self-tapping and thread-forming screws. Since then, it has grown rapidly through integration and diversification of its product range.
Today, VIC predominantly manufactures and distributes fastening systems for the white goods industry. This market presents high entry barriers due to the strong loyalty of customers who require tailor-made solutions and a highly efficient logistics service. With almost 50 years of activity, VIC has established long-standing relationships with its customers which includes leading European manufacturers of white goods, including Indesit, Whirlpool, Electrolux, Elica and BSH Bosch and Siemens. VIC’s strong position in this sector has significantly increased Trifast’s revenue from this market sector.
VIC has a young, experienced and motivated management team, led by Carlo Perini. The focus and continued efforts on customisation has allowed the business not only to keep up with output markets’ technological development, but also to often act as an innovator, reinforcing its competitive positioning. Fastening solutions are specifically designed and engineered where applicable for each client to meet specific needs. VIC is able to use its ‘know-how’ and ‘customised approach in fastening applications’ among different sectors including for example automotive electronics thereby reducing the dependence from one sector.
