Company profile

Vision

Our commitment, passion, and professionalism allows our customers to “forget” about the management of the class C parts. We aim to become a reference point, well known in the market, able to innovate to anticipate its needs. A push to look beyond characterises us through each generation.

Mission

Berardi Bullonerie’s mission is to support customers in breaking down the overall cost of procurement and we achieve this by suggesting and sharing technical solutions, developing innovative services that cut management costs and offering an ever wider range of products allowing customers to reduce the number of suppliers.

This is achieved every day by the individuals who work with us and who we wish to maintain and help grow through personal satisfaction and motivation.

For this reason we are committed to:

  • leverage the special traits of each employee
  • adapt operating conditions and make them comfortable
  • organize and promote training sessions for personal and professional growth

Since 1919, an ongoing story

Berardi Bullonerie has been distributing fasteners and screws for four generations and has always been known for the high quality of its customer service.

The business began in 1919 with a small shop in Piazza Maggiore in Bologna.

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

1984, with the transfer of the business to a 4,500 square meter warehouse with about 15 thousand items in stock, was the year that marked Berardi Bullonerie’s entry into the list of major Italian screw and fastener distribution companies.

In January 2003 , the company moved to its current office in Castel Guelfo (BO), organizing a 10.000 square meter  semi-automated warehouse,with 45,000 items in stock (130,000 on the books) and over 1,000,000 lines shipped each year.
