Giovanni Velo: a passion for wine since 1980

Giovanni Velo: passion for wine since 1980

The relationship between VLS Technologies and the wineries has been ongoing for over 35 years

In 1980, with a 25-year sector experience behind him, Giovanni Velo founded Acciai Srl. and the relationship between VLS Technologies and the wineries has been ongoing for over 35 years. At that time, he began a journey: to flank all types of wineries.

From small…

At one end were the smaller family-run farms which accepted his advice on the best choices of equipment. The relationships of trust developing over the years required of us to be transparent, sincere and honest in giving our advice, matched of course with offering the best value for money on the investments made.

…to bigger companies

At the other were the largest clients: the big wine cooperatives or joint-stock companies. Generally, these wine producers have their own internal expert winemakers or process engineers, who are responsible for production and who have very clear ideas. They can define – in greater or lesser detail – the essential requirements of the projects. These customers require a high production capacity, prompt after-sales service, a web-based assistance service, and special guarantees.

We have been working for over 35 years to best serve this type of customer, along with all those in between, without forgetting the values which Giovanni Velo laid down as the foundations of our company in 1980, and which continue today. Our best characteristics indeed stem from our craft-based beginnings: flexibility, attention to detail and the passion that we put into developing projects with our clients.
