GVS S.p.A. is an Italian multinational corporation specialized in filtration solutions that was founded in 1979 in Zola Pedrosa, in the metropolitan city of Bologna.
GVS provides advanced filtration solutions for several fields: medicine, laboratories, mobility and automotive, air safety, occupational safety and health, and membranes.
Founded in 1979 by Grazia Valentini Scagliarini (hence the acronym GVS), initially it was a manufacturer of medical filters that were used for blood treatment.
In 1983, the production division for the Energy and Mobility sector is introduced.
In 2000, the internationalization of GVS Group began with the grand opening of new branches and production plants in Brazil, China, the United States, and Mexico.
In 2002, Marco and Massimo Scagliarini, the two sons of the founder, took over the company.
In 2011, the company continued its expansion overseas, arriving in China, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the UK.
In 2014, GVS developed the ELIPSE RESPIRATOR project and created the lightest and most compact half masks in the world, with EN 140:1998 and EN 405:2001+A1:2009 certifications, and EN 143:2000+A1:2006 and EN 14387:2004+A1:2008 filter certification.
The lightness, softness, and resistance of this half mask – along with its patented technology of 7-layer HESPA pleated filters that provides a filtration level of 99.95% during its use – make it one of the best performing products on the market today.
