Founded by Gary Vergason in 1986, Vergason Technology, Inc. (VTI) grew from a fledgling toll coating supplier to an internationally recognized leader in vacuum coating and equipment. Over the years, we have grown from a 500-square-foot addition on the side of Gary’s father’s barn to a modern 37,000-square-foot corporate and manufacturing facility in Van Etten, NY.
VTI delivered the first of several bone implant coating systems in 1988 and the World’s first commercial Press-Side® Rapid Cycle Vacuum Metalizing System in 1989.
VTI’s cathodic arc patent pioneered the discrete anode, switched arc arena in 1991. Our patented CatArc® technology is used today to supply high quality, low temperature thin-film coatings and equipment for surface treatments and substrates demanding critical temperature control to maintain high hardness, uniform thickness control, and dimensional stability.
As an ISO 9001:2008 Tier 1 Supplier, VTI proudly supports a wide variety of customers and markets; from corrosion-resistant coatings to solar and photovoltaic.
