Victaulic was founded on innovation. In 1919, Ernest Tribe and Dr. Henry Hele-Shaw filed the patent for what is now known as the Victaulic coupling, the concept was groundbreaking: joining pipe with bolted mechanical grooved couplings, using a gasket seal. The company, originally known as The Victory Pipe Joint Company, was renamed Victaulic which combined the words “VICtory” and “hydrAULIC”.
Before Victaulic, the piping industry relied primarily on welders for joining pipe. Victaulic’s innovative design introduced the industry to an efficient, more economical way to assemble pipes quickly, safely and over longer distances than ever before.
