Our History

History of Innovation = Future of Promise

Veltek Associates, Inc. was founded in 1981 by Arthur L. Vellutato, Sr. as a result of his direct answers to the challenges of developing simple and concise solutions to the common problems experienced within clean room operations.

Applying his more than 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry to finding alternative methods for established industry practices, his leadership of VAI resulted in a continuous stream of successful products that is still carried on today.

If one word is synonymous with VAI it would be Innovation. Since its founding, VAI has followed two corporate principles – Listen and Innovate. Together with our customers we have designed and manufactured countless products and services that are designed to meet current industry needs as well as serve the industry for years to come.

After Arthur L. Vellutato, Sr.’s passing in 2009 his son, Arthur L. Vellutato, Jr., took over as president and CEO of VAI after over 20 years serving as the Director of Sales and Marketing. Arthur L. Vellutato, Jr. brought his love of VAI and constant attention to customer satisfaction to his new role as leader and driving force for VAI’s continued success.

With its continued strong growth, VAI is poised to create advanced products and services to further simplify and advance the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and research & development industries. Our aspiration is to use the knowledge we have acquired along with the assistance of our customers to continue to develop alternative methods to aid and simplify established industry practices as well as create new and innovative processes.

Our promising future will be built upon our past successes and driven by our unwavering commitment to our customers and innovations.
