Henrique Vieira starts his activity with manufactured products, such as small alembics, coffee makers, copper fryers and pots, and also selling sprayers, trivets, iron fryers and tongs, all of these items sold at local fairs. The facilities were limited to a small workshop, without any mechanized equipment.
At the end of the 90s, HVF decided to strategically increase its stainless steel tanks production capacity and acquired SOINOX company. The emergence of the wine market segment in the business context, led the company to strengthen its position, allowing it to reach full production capacity and boost the commercialization of oenological equipment.
In the same year, it is distinguished with the PME Excellence award.
The year 2013 brought even greater recognition, with the organization being given the PME Líder status.
In 2015, SOINOX, Lda and Henrique Vieira & Filhos, SA merged. Since SOINOX worked as a HVF production department, the objectives of this operation were to increase competitive capacity and increased efficiency in allocating resources.
Currently, the bigger challenge for HVF is related to the need to intensify its internationalization process. The company has been increasingly investing in the external market, particularly in the Spanish market and it is the intention of those responsible for the company to continue to grow, keeping the focus on achieving the best results, on monitoring the evolution of customers and markets, on investing on technical know-how, maximum quality of products and services, innovation capacity, technological development and also resources optimization and waste management.
