REV’IT! Announces Purchase Of Bespoke Italian Brand Vircos
Acquisition will strengthen presence at highest levels of motorcycle competition
OSS, Netherlands (Aug. 1, 2022) – Vircos has been manufacturing custom-tailored leather road racing suits of the highest quality in Italy for more than 30 years. REV’IT! Sport International began its collaboration with Vircos in 2007, a relationship founded on common values, with a shared passion for motorcycle racing.
REV’IT! and Vircos are solidifying this partnership by merging into a single company. With the acquisition of Vircos, REV’IT!, whose innovation and leadership in the adventure segment continues to raise the bar in design and performance, is gaining key expertise and knowledge to realize its ambitions to perform a leading role in motorsports.
“We are naturally attracted to people who share our values, a common vision of business and of life,” said Aldo De Agnoi, founder of Vircos. “We see REV’IT! as the perfect partner. That is why a merger between the two companies has been signed. We are sure this decision will be proven to be the right choice.”
“Vircos has been a loyal and trusted partner over the years,” said REV’IT! Managing Director Ivan Vos. “Securing a bright future for the company for many years to come is important for both Vircos and REV’IT!. In this new configuration, the strength of the REV’IT! brand and the skills and expertise of the Vircos team will amplify one another, taking us to new places.”
In acquiring Vircos, REV’IT! benefits from the decades of technical expertise that Vircos brings to the REV’IT! development team. This will significantly advance both the design and the manufacturing of custom-made, professional road-racing suits, as well as opening up a path for personalization — a growing trend in the sports market.
Together, Vircos and REV’IT! will continue to develop advanced, industry-leading products that enhance the performance and the protection for riders competing at the highest levels of national and international competition, driving their professions and their passions to higher levels and carrying the motorcycle community forward.
