An on-going story since 1919

Berardi Bullonerie is a screw, fasteners distribution company now in its fourth family generation and it has always stood out for the high level of service offered to its customers.

The activity started back in 1919 with a small shop in Piazza Maggiore in Bologna.

In 1960, the shop became a distribution company and moved its business to a large, equipped warehouse.

1984, when the business moved to a 4,500 m2 warehouse with around 15,000 items in stock, was the year when Berardi Bullonerie entered the circle of large Italian distribution companies of screws and fasteners.

In January 2003, the company moved to its current headquarters in Castel Guelfo (BO) organising a semi-automated warehouse of 10,000 square metres, 50,000 items in stock (130,000 in the database) and more than 1,000,000 lines dispatched each year.
