Mivar is an Italian factory of consumer electronics and furniture.
It was founded by entrepreneur Carlo Vichi in 1945 in Milan, but now the company headquartersthe is in Abbiategrasso (20 km from Milan).
Mivar used to produce radios and CRT televisions, but now only LCD LED televisions (since 2013 the production of LCD LED televisions has been suspended).
Mivar is the last Italian factory of televisions.
Since the 80s until 2000 in Italy Mivar TVs have had a very wide spread, in fact these televisions were present in almost every Italian house, in the Italian TV Studios, in schools, hospitals, hotels and prisons, because these CRT TVs were good, cheap, robust and durable.
When the market decided to focus on the LCD TVs, Mivar was unprepared and had serious difficulties. But thanks to the tenacity of the master Carlo Vichi, Mivar introduced between 2004 and 2010 some new attractive and competitive LCD-CCFL TVs, and in 2011 some new LED TVs. The televisions made today by Mivar are also particularly simple and rational, with a particular Italian design and front speakers for better sound. Today's Mivar TVs are all made in Italy.
Since 2013 the production of the factory is only oriented tables and chairs.
At same time, the property has declared its willingness to grant the free usufruct of its new plant (except ordinary expense management) to anyone who wants to produce: TVs, high tech products, household appliances or electronic equipment.
