Vifra first injection moulding machine

Our company
Vifra sets up, with the first factory in via Matteotti, in 1980 in Invorio in the province of Novara, Italy, by Francesco Vicari and then passed on to his son Marino.
In 1991 it moved to via Vedani expanding its production, and in 2007 it moved to via Barro expanding its factories even further. The Group currently has 30 employees with an area of ​​20000 square meters. 8000 of which are covered, consisting of a raw materials warehouse, a warehouse for finished and semi-finished products, a production warehouse and a head building where there are offices. Its production process allows to range in different sectors: taps, cosmetics, perfumery, automotive, thermo-hydraulic, electronics, objects. In line with this philosophy, Vifra offers a series of services: from design to prototyping, screen printing, chrome plating, assembly, packaging and shipping of the finished product. Vifra believes in the great potential that the injection moulding sector can offer, it invests in the development of its know-how and in the most modern technologies. In 2009 we renewed the production chain with an automatic transport and dehumidification system, capable of conveying the raw material from the silos to the moulding stations without dispersion material, and reducing energy consumption by 40%. This investment has brought greater savings, more order and efficiency in production, and a secondary effect of not negligible importance: less physical workload for employees and greater control over each phase of the process. Currently, following the continuous improvement philosophy, Vifra proudly obtain the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 management certifications.
