Vega Holster Company

A Journey of Growth from Italy to the World

The story of Vega Holster is that of an Italian company born from the dedication of its founders and evolved in an environment of collaboration and constant innovation. This journey began with the initiative of a production expert, Lio Toschi, who in 1992 founded Vega Holster with his wife Giovanna Follati and their son Francesco, with the idea of producing quality holsters and accessories for law enforcement.

Thanks to the seriousness and efficiency of the production and commercial team, and the quality of materials and products, Vega Holster quickly established itself as a leading brand in the sector, gaining leadership in the national market and later on the international stage.

The Toschi family’s initiative took executive shape in 1993 in a small workshop in the province of Pisa, where the first products were manufactured and marketed.

Today, Vega Holster is a thriving company that boasts a significant number of motivated and skilled employees and collaborators, over 6000 square meters of property organized into offices, workshops with state-of-the-art machinery and tools, and a large warehouse for storing over 1,000 types of items.

Thanks to this organization, the annual production has reached significant volumes, and shipments extend to all continents. We are proud of this story and the commitment rewarded with your trust.
