THE HISTORY OF BONOMI HAS BEEN MADE THROUGH A CENTURY OF “CRAFT MANIA” AND ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT.

GENERATION AFTER GENERATION, EACH LEAVING THE AMBITION TO IMPROVE BY CONTINUOUS, PATIENT AND TRANSVERSAL RESEARCH, RIGOROUS QUALITY CONTROL, KEEPING PACE WITH THE EVOLUTION OF TECHNOLOGY, UNTIRING DAILY EFFORTS NURTURED BY SOBRIETY.

1927

THE FIRST YEARS OF THE CENTURY ARE THOSE OF BONOMI GIUSEPPE FU VITTORIO FOUNDRY AND MANUFACTURER OF BRASS PRODUCTS. SO MANY SACRIFICES, FATIGUE IN EVERY SENSE, JOURNEYS TO DISCOVER FAR-OFF MARKETS. THOSE MARKETS REPAY THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCTS AND THE TENACITY OF THOSE THAT MADE THEM. IN 1927 THE COMPANY WAS AWARDED A DIPLOMA AND GOLD MEDAL AT THE TURIN TRADE FAIR.

“OUR EFFORTS IN CREATION IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO FIND FANTASTIC MACHINERY IT’S THE PEOPLE THAT COUNT, THOSE WHO USE THEM TO CREATE.”

GIUSEPPE BONOMI, CHAIRMAN

BONOMI GROWS

AND IN THE 30s CONVERTS BY PRODUCING COMPONENTS FOR WATER HEATING AND SANITARY SYSTEMS. IN THOSE YEARS A STRATEGIC AND WINNING CHOICE IS MADE: LONG-TERM CONTINUOUS INVESTMENT IN THE MOST UP-TO-DATE MACHINERY. SELF-SUFFICIENCY IN PRODUCTION AND TECHNOLOGY HAS NOT PREVENTED BONOMI FROM GENERATING IMPORTANT SATELLITE INDUSTRIES, THUS CREATING GREATER EMPLOYMENT. MANY SONS OF THE CRAFTSMEN WHO WORKED FREELANCE FOR BONOMI ARE NOW MANAGERS IN SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES.

“EVERY DAY I’M COMMITTED WITH THE AMBITION TO MAINTAIN THE TRUST THAT MY FATHER, WITH HIS WORK, WAS ABLE TO ACHIEVE.”

1946 IDROSANITARIA BONOMI

LEAVING BEHIND THEM THE HARD TIMES OF THE WAR, IN THE MID-40s BONOMI EXPANDS AND BECOMES A GROUP: A FORERUNNER OF THE TIMES, THE COMPANY BECOMES AN ENTERPRISE-NETWORK SHOWING ITS ABILITY TO LOOK AHEAD. TO ACHIEVE A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE THE COMPANY STOCKS RAW MATERIALS AND THUS REDUCES COSTS AND PROMOTES THE CREATING OF NEW ENTERPRISES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ACCESSORIES AND SEMI-FINISHED PRODUCTS. THE GROUP LEADER IS THE IDROSANITARIA BONOMI, WHICH BECOMES A REFERENCE POINT IN THE PLUMBING SECTOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF TAPS AND FITTINGS. RATIONALISATION OF PRODUCTION AND THEIR SALES ORGANISATION ALLOW BONOMI TO DEDICATE RESOURCES TO WHAT LIES IN THEIR HEART: QUALITY INTENDED IN ALL ITS DECLINATIONS, FROM MATERIALS, TO THE PRODUCT, TO SERVICES

1960

IT’S THE LATE 50s:

A 17-YEAR-OLD GIUSEPPE, NOW CHAIRMAN OF THE GROUP, STARTS HIS CAREER

FIRST IN THE WORKSHOP, THEN TRAVELLING WITH HIS FATHER, BORTOLO BONOMI, THROUGHOUT

EUROPE WHILE BROTHERS EVARISTO AND FIRMO TAKE CARE OF PRODUCTION. THEY ARE ALL YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS WHO TOIL CEASELESSLY, WITH A STRENGTH THAT REMAINS UNCHANGED TODAY. IN 1968 GIUSEPPE TAKES HIS FATHER’S PLACE IN MANAGING THE COMPANY WITH THE UNFAILING SUPPORT OF HIS BROTHERS. THE ENTREPRENEURIAL STYLE INHERITED FROM HIS FOREBEARS IS CHARACTERISED BY WISE HUMBLENESS WHICH DRIVES HIM TO A CONTINUOUS COMPARISON WITH MORE EXPERT BUSINESSMEN BELONGING TO OTHER PRODUCTION SECTORS. THIS WAY HE LEARNS FROM OTHERS AND GAINS KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. 1974 IS THE YEAR IN WHICH BONOMI METALLI IS ESTABLISHED WITH THE MISSION OF TRADING RAW MATERIALS. IN 1996, THE ACQUISITION OF INSA, A COMPANY PRODUCING BRONZE CASTINGS AND NOW SPECIALISED IN HEATING AND SANITARY COMPONENTS. THE THRESHOLD OF THE THIRD MILLENNIUM SEES THE ENTRY OF A NEW GROUP MEMBER, METALLI PRESSATI BONOMI, A COMPANY OPERATING SINCE 1905 IN THE CHROME PLATED FITTINGS SECTOR.

THE WISH TO “CREATE” EMBODIED IN THE WISH TO “PRODUCE”

 

THE NEW MILLENNIUM COULD NOT BUT SEE BONOMI INCARNATE AVANT-GARDE DESIGN: C4 IS THE CODE NAME FOR THE DEVELOPMENT PROJECT FOR A SPECIAL RANGE OF TAPS AND FITTINGS. IT IS THE WISH TO “CREATE” EMBODIED IN THE WISH TO “PRODUCE”, THE TALENT OF CRAFTSMEN EXPRESSING THE ITALIAN INSTINCT FOR STYLE. THE BONOMI SIGNATURE AND THAT OF DESIGNER SERGIO MORI APPEAR ON THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF ARCO, FOR THE FIRST TIME PROPOSING AN INNOVATIVE “FLAT SPOUT” WHICH HAS MET WITH GREAT SUCCESS AND NOWADAYS IS CONSIDERED A PARADIGM IN TAP DESIGN.

“PRODUCTION TODAY IS NOT ONLY MAKING THINGS BUT MAKING SURE THAT QUALITY IN PRODUCTION CORRESPONDS WITH QUALITY IN SERVICE.”
