RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY
From the outset, Vimitex has attached particular importance to finding innovative solutions to the challenges faced by foodservice operators. Our passion for research has produced over 10 national and European patents and has created countless clever solutions for handling minor details and problems in commercial kitchens. We are committed to maintain the ethos of handmade quality and user-friendliness in our products and we strive to continuously improve our ranges by listening to our customers’ needs.
To support this value, we have been engaged in a long-term cooperation with the Department of Chemistry in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki which has increased the company’s know-how, leading us to a most prominent position amongst many other manufacturing companies in the hospitality industry.
To ensure quality level and stabilize the production process Vimitex implemented an effective quality management system according to ISO 9000 in 1997. The impact of this certification was spectacular for the company’s expansion in the coming years.
Our continued growth and success lies in the fact that we seek to adopt new approaches by following environmentally-friendly strategies while maintaining our high manufacturing standards in order to offer high-performing, long-lasting products and meet the demands of the fast-changing trends in the foodservice market.
