Patented in 1919, Victaulic is the originator and world’s leading producer of mechanical pipe joining solutions. Originally known as The Victory Pipe Joint Company, Victaulic began to market a revolutionary new concept in the piping industry — a mechanical bolted coupling that would engage into grooves and use a gasket seal.
The concept of the “victory joint”, joining pipe with bolted mechanical couplings, originated during World War I for rapid deployment of fuel and water lines to Allied forces. Later, combining the words “Victory” and “Hydraulics” the company name was shortened to Victaulic, and the company began to shift its focus to commercial piping applications to market its new innovative method of joining pipe.
Throughout its innovative history, the company’s enthusiasm for crafting unconventional solutions has allowed it to forge new paths as it tackles the industry’s most unique challenges.
Today, Victaulic innovative piping technologies and services put people to work faster while increasing safety, ensuring reliability and maximizing efficiency. The company has 15 major manufacturing facilities and 28 branches worldwide with 3,600 employees who speak 43 languages across the globe. With over 1,800 active global patents, Victaulic solutions are at work in more than 125 countries across diverse business lines including oil and gas, chemical, mining, power generation, water and wastewater treatment, military and marine, as well as commercial building and fire protection.
