The company Giuseppe & F.lli Bonaiti was formally set up in 1938 with headquarter in Calolziocorte. However, the origin of the company, that now is at the seventh generation, traces back to the beginning of 19th century, more precisely in 1830, thanks to his founder Giuseppe Bonaiti.
The company was originally established as steel drawer, but the passing of time and the changing needs have modified the product range several times. In addition to steel wire, small metal parts for civil and military sector and then door locks have been added to the product range. In order to achieve a better vertical organization, the development of cold rolled steel strip sector was a logical consequence. Lastly Giuseppe & F.lli Bonaiti started out the production of snap-hooks for navigation and for alpinism.
