How did a Lehigh Valley manufacturing business get the attention of Forbes?
It’s been a banner year for Victaulic. Throughout 2019, we have been celebrating the 100th anniversary of our first patent and coined the term “Innoversary” as we take this celebration around the world. Our customers are excited as well as our Victaulic employees who are on full display on our Victaulic Instagram account. What has been even more thrilling is the engagement and attention we have received for the way in which we continue to live out our Victaulic legacy as a construction productivity company that is 100 years strong and 100 years young.
In June 2019 Victaulic got the attention of Forbes contributor Jim Vinoski who determined that the unique aspects of Victaulic’s industrial legacy, combined with its modern popularity, was a story worth exploring. In an interview with Victaulic’s Chairman, President and CEO John F. Malloy and Victaulic’s VP and Head of Marketing, Eric Luftig, Jim peels back the layers of who Victaulic really is and why those who “think they know Victaulic” may not even realize all of the ways Victaulic is contributing to meeting the productivity challenges that plague the modern construction industry.
“…we’re kind of like ‘Intel Inside’ – we have things (product) in so many places that people just don’t know about. We like to say, ‘from the tallest towers to the deepest mines.’ Once you see it and understand who we are, you can’t help but find our technology at work everywhere,” stated Eric in his interview with Jim.
