Vemar was founded in 1975 in Grosseto Italy (in beautiful Tuscany) to produce fiberglass tanks to preserve wine, oil and water for professional and domestic use. In 1987, one of the original Vemar partners, Riccardo Simoni, established the helmet department based on the company’s 10+ of experience working with fiberglass and composite materials. This division spun off in 1992 into its own company, Vemar Helmets.Focused from "day-one” on technical development, quality materials and production methods, Mr. Simoni put into practice his experience and knowledge of composite fibers and soon, by focusing this development plan on product comfort, light weight and safety, Vemar Helmets was able to produce Kevlar, Carbon and multicomposite products, (Tri-composites) with superior liners and in the quintessential Italian style making itself the largest and most experienced European manufacturer of composite helmets.From the first building, smaller than 1800 square feet, the company has grown to today’s 270,000 square foot facility, that sells the Vemar brand in over 40 countries. Every Vemar helmet is engineered to the motorcyclist specific EC-22.05 standard in addition to the USA’s DOT standard at Vemar’s Italian technical laboratory. Additionally all Vemar helmets are also subjected to third party testing at the Los Angeles based test laboratory of Collision and Injury Dynamics, Inc. Value is the hallmark and key feature of the Vemar range.
