Milan, an Italian city in the north of the country and the capital of Lombardy, resides in a perfect and dynamic balance between history and modernity. An important financial center and home of the Italian stock exchange, Milan is the world capital of fashion and design and hosts important events such as Fashion Week. Milan offers a wide range of cultural attractions, including theaters, museums and art galleries.

The city is cosmopolitan, a crossroads of styles with a mixture of modern and ancient architecture, technical and economic universities, lively neighborhoods, a rich culinary scene and a vibrant nightlife. The hinterland is home to some of Italy's most important and historic manufacturing companies.

Working at Radiall Italia

Radiall Italia was established in 2021 after the merger between VanSystem, a company that started in 1977 to design and produce connectors for industrial applications, and Radiall Elettronica, a company specializing in the distribution of high-frequency electronic components.

The VanSystem series production process takes place in Baranzate. The brand, now called the Heavy Duty series, is recognized in the industry for reliability, durability and efficiency.

A perfect synthesis of tradition and innovation, Radiall Italia's employees include both experienced team members with technical and commercial know-how and a newer generation of managers with modern professionalism and up-to-date skills.

A secondary production site is located in Canton Ticino, Switzerland, where the more complex manufacturing processes are performed on last-generation machine tools.
