Vimar is an Italian company specialising in electrical systems
and home automation components
. Founded in 1945 in Marostica in the province of Vicenza, it has become a sector leader and representative of Made-in-Italy excellence thanks to its high quality and constant innovation. Vimar was born out of the need to supply products for civil use. In the 1950s, Vimar produced items from plugs and wall sockets with glass discs to the famous bakelite pear-shaped switch; in the following decade, the brand moved on to the first civil series
in thermoplastic material. The flagships of the Vimar catalogue remain the historic Plana and Eikon
lines. Starting in 2005, the company's core business shifted towards automation with the development of the By-Me home automation system. In 2011, Vimar acquired the Elvox brand, a leading Italian video door entry system
company. This marked the birth of the Vimar Group, which today boasts a solid sales network and factories around the world.
