SMACNA recently spoke with Scott Vidimos, president and third-generation leader at Vidimos, Inc., and his team about how the industrial sheet metal contractor has evolved its business and technology to meet customer demand and needs over its last 75 years in business.
The family-owned and operated business does work primarily with local manufacturing companies, typically industrial plants — steel mills, refineries and power plants — producing custom steel fabrications, industrial ducts, conveyance systems and flame, laser and plasma cut steel parts.
Vidimos is also looking to extend its reach into untapped markets, such as service and architectural, and is using new technologies to gain a competitive edge. “We recently invested in a large laser … that burns 5 to 10 times as fast as a machine that’s 8 years old,” said Vidimos. As a customer-driven business, Vidimos says he knows “it’s really important to stay on the cutting-edge of equipment and investment.”
