Victaulic Celebrates 99 Years of Innovation

Posted on April 4, 2018

Ninety-nine years ago today on April 4th, 1919, Lieutenant Ernest Tribe filed the first patent for The Victory Joint. In contrast to the threaded, flanged, and bell-and-spigot methods that were being used, this pipe joint combined the best features of each. A new coupling emerged and the Victaulic heritage was born. This groundbreaking technology resisted high pressures and temperature fluctuations provided swift and smooth installation Coupling gaskets and a coupling connecting pipe. and was versatile for a wide variety of applications.

Today, Victaulic has built a portfolio of 100,000+ products and patented technologies. We continue to set precedents in the area of mechanical pipe joining, with recent offerings such as the world’s first intelligent roll grooving tool, FireLock™ Installation-Ready™ Fittings, and unique Victaulic solutions performing in the most extreme conditions. Since our first patent in 1919 for the grooved coupling, we’ve gained a reputation for optimizing construction productivity and reducing risk, ensuring projects are completed safely, on time, and within budget.
