Viet was founded in 1953
by Ettore Vichi. The company has consistently placed strong emphasis on
technology and innovation, and specialises in producing machines for
processing surfaces. Originally concentrating on polishing assembled
components such as the cases of television sets, Viet developed into a
specialised firm operating in the furniture components sector. With its
sensitivity to contemporary needs at specific times in its history, Viet
has consistently stood out for its ability to anticipate the
requirements of the most demanding customers and to lay down new
technological standards that have led to innovation in its sector.
In the 1970s, Vietbegan specialising in machines for the calibration, sanding, brushing and polishing of wood and composite materials. Since 1990, Viet has also specialised in the production of smoothing machines for components made of metal and alloys, which has further expanded the field in which the company is active.
Viet has registered numerous patents over the years. Some are considered to be milestones and constitute the foundation of countless technologies that are still used by Viet and other industries in the sector. The first electronic pad, the superfinishing pad and the Kombi unit are just some examples of how Viet has come to be acknowledged as a leader in industrial development in its sector.
Since 2011, Viet has been a brand in the Biesse Group
with headquarters in Pesaro. A leader in the sector of industrial
machinery, it can be found on the Star listing of the Milan stock
exchange. Biesse has thus expanded its product line and considers Viet
to be the flagship company in its broad technological portfolio.
Under the guidance and with the participation of the Biesse Group, Viet
can now draw upon a large, efficient distribution network. Numerous
branches, sales offices and distribution agencies around the world have
enabled Viet to expand and enhance its activities, and to operate more
effectively on the market.
