Vittoria, a famed Italian brand of bicycle tires, will be opening a new office in South Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood.
Vittoria Industries Ltd., which has headquarters in Madone, Italy, has been in business since 1953 and produces more than 7 million tires a year, the company said.
“The combination of a skilled labor force, strong outdoor enthusiast base, and geographical location made Boston an easy choice,” EJ Riordan, president of Vittoria Industries North America, said in a statement. “We are looking forward to growing with the local cycling scene, while continuing to provide the very best product available.”
The new office, located at 285 Summer St., will house a portion of the company's administrative offices.
