Founded in 1926 in the Darsena (dockyard) of the Port of Genoa, the company managed to develop quickly thanks to its strategic location to become an official supplier to the Royal Navy and major shipping companies.
With the end of the Second World War and the gradual disappearance of sailing ships, the production of flags was introduced, which still represents our history today with a product of the highest quality.
In the 1950s, recreational boating began with the early ventures around Italy and France, expanding worldwide in the years to follow as a true tourism and leisure industry.
The shipyards, which up to this point had only built fishing and work boats, now started to cater to the demands of private individuals for pure pleasure.
At VSG, production of the first life jackets began.
In 1963, the first edition of the Genoa International Boat Show was a decisive step for the development of the entire sector.
VSG was present with its entire product range.
Between the 1980s and the beginning of the new millennium, VSG designed and created many new products, even exploring new sectors. It was during this period that exclusive contracts were signed for the World Cup flags. Moreover, in 1992, multi-freediving-champion Enzo Maiorca signed diving watches on behalf of VSG to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America.
These years also saw the first Quality System certification in Italy, issued by the Italian Naval Register in accordance with the new ISO 9001 standards, along with the production of the first life jackets with CE marking.
To crown the successes of the last twenty years came the 1997 inauguration of a new, modern factory in Casarza Ligure, extending across an area of 7,000 metres, 4,000 of which are indoors.
Since the beginning of the new millennium, VSG has been awarded numerous exclusive licences, including:
The sea covers about 70% of the surface of our planet. It is a place of work, exploration, discovery and fun. For all these reasons, Veleria San Giorgio products ensure that those wanting to experience the water can do so with the utmost safety.
