It was 1980: in corso XX Settembre, in Busto Arsizio in the north of the indostruous Lombardia, Aristide Franzosi and Vittoriano Carta started a company called Viar. Vittoriano and Aristide, precisely. In 1980 Viar consisted in two people and no manufacturing, as it started as a business intermediary. In our small way, starting from corso XX Settembre in Busto Arsizio, an ordinary year, 1980, turned into an extraordinary one. Ordinary for the orther, not for us.
WHY A LION
The Serenissima in Sumirago. The Lion of Saint Mark, heart of our banner. His representation, business capacity, the fact of fighting his way, were in his and out DNS: without trade, without ambassadors, Viar, could not be identified with study, design and production.
It was 2004, Viar is no longer in Cassano Magnano, nor in Cavaria where it just passed, nor in the first headquarters in the Sumirago municipality. In 2004 we arrive in Via del Saliccio in Quinzago, a fraction of Sumirago. In a small plain surrounded by woods, a bucolic scenery, the first half of what is still out main plant is opened. Run by Aristide Franzosi and his sons Davide and Luca.
NEW SPACES FOR NEW FEATURES FOR A CONTINOUS GROWTH
Today, in 2015, via del Saliccio is half occupied by out technology and out work. In 2012 our first plant more than doubles its surface. Just opposite, over the year 3, other plants have been built taking the number to 4, 5 if we include our production site in the Bergamo province. New spaces for new features for a continuous growth.
DAVIDE AND LUCA: THE CONTINUITY OF VIAR ESSENCE
We were five people when the first sitting was forged, now we emply over 100 people. As a total, our company consists in 16 thousand square metres with 14000 solar panels. From photovoltaic, from our sun, Viar manages to obtain nearly a third of its energy needs.
