VFC A history of solutions
In 2006 the original owners, Todd Vought and Travis Vought took on equity partners to implement a growth strategy to become the first national Lightning Protection Company.
In 2008 VFC acquired the assets of Lyncole with its complementary services in grounding engineering and testing and its manufacturing of grounding components like its signature product—the XIT electrolytic grounding system.
In 2021 VFC acquired the Houston-based Taylor Lightning Protection and its outstanding team of employees and relationships throughout south Texas.
