Maurizio Vio, former Fincantieri employee, had a dream that came true in 1980 when he founded his own business in Venice. Vio started out in a small laboratory of only 50 square meters in the branch of light mechanical carpentry, working with farmers, fishermen and private citizens building gates, railings, tractor’s levels, greenhouse trusses, and providing maintenance services on fishing boats. In 1996 the company was still growing and moved to a 750 square meters covered area located in Jesolo.
With the “series production” began the first true evolution of the production. Numerous products were made such as rotating rakes, large irrigators, stabilizers for umbrellas and kick scooters for children. In 2006, the ambition, the experience acquired during the years and the entrepreneurial spirit of the founder, pushed him to transform his individual business into a new company called “Officine Vio Srl” that included his family members. This has been a decision that allowed a slow but constant growth and the penetration in the medium-heavy metallic carpentry.
With years of dedication and hard work, Officine Vio Srl has been able to gain a foothold in the market, reach a covered productive area of 8500 square meters and 6500 square meters uncovered. The trump card of the company is the flexibility that permits to switch from certain type of works into others such as bridges, glass walls, side shell doors, aluminium windows, lift structures, industrial warehouses, skydome for cruise ships (swimming pools), floodgates for hydropower plants. Officine Vio are able to provide a complete service, in addition to the construction on site, they are able to provide for the design and assembly of products with qualified personnel and appropriate equipment through aerial platforms and crane trucks.
