VPI Industries, Inc. is a high-end audio manufacturer that was started by Sheila and Harry Weisfeld, the founders and co-owners thirty five years ago. Both Jonathan, the Weisfeld's oldest son and VPI Industries began at the same time in 1978 with its first product, a record weight in two different sizes. Then VPI introduced a turntable isolation base in December of 1978. Today VPI is known worldwide for its design and manufacture of high-end turntables, tonearms, and other vinyl playback components. All VPI products are built in the United States in Cliffwood, New Jersey, using American made parts and labor.
