Company Milestones

Vacuum Instruments Corporation is a pioneer in providing state-of-the-art leak detection solutions for diverse application and industries. Our systems have ensured the safety and performance of countless products that we use in our daily lives from the cars we drive to the air conditioners in our houses, the pacemakers in our bodies, and the satellites we launch into space.

Only one company in the world designs, builds, services and supports every aspect of the leak detection process. Vacuum Instruments Corporation (VIC) has been leading the leak detection industry since the introduction of the first commercial leak detector.
