We have been making history in the washing sector since 1929. VELOX BARCHITTA created the first Italian dishwasher.

A family business from its very beginning, Velox was the first company to introduce industrial washing in Italy. The company’s founder, Dr Antonino Barchitta, saw in innovation for washing machines a market with room for great development and success. Thus began a cooperation with the Bertolini company of Paris, with which Velox started to develop automatic washing systems.

The modular rack model, from 1929, the first result of Velox research, was given to the Vatican as a gift, when Pius XI was pope. Starting with that machine, VELOX has accumulated enough know-how to allow it to launch its products ahead of the new requests of national and international markets.

A story that is almost 100 years long, marked by significant innovation milestones.

In 1944, the company manufactured the first compact dishwasher, the MICRO VELOX, a veritable revolution at the time.

Since the 1950’s we have manufactured a wide range of washing machines to be used anywhere from small restaurants to big industries, thus acquiring a great portfolio in all of the most relevant sectors.

In its usual quest for innovation, in 1972 the company was the first to wash pots and pans with granules, Carbonet, a very efficient system that resulted in a product completely different from all the other pot washing machines available at the time. The current evolution of this washing system are the models B and BS, which, unlike their predecessor, use a new granular product, Polinet, that is both highly technological and environmentally friendly. With this system, today Velox Barchitta, can solve any type of difficult washing, such as washing moulds for hams.

Velox Barchitta has always studied and manufactured innovative solutions to solve washing problems, thanks to its ability to design and manufacture machines that respond to clients’ specific requests. A leader in its sector in Europe and abroad, Velox, with its avant-garde technologies, is a reliable, high-performing company.
