Today Bonfiglioli is a truly multinational organisation, with a worldwide network made of branches that are not just sales offices, but enterprises that are fully operative in their respective market places.

Permit us to emphasise on two fundamental principles, that will be constantly referred to when making future decisions:
• “SHARING AND PARTICIPATION” in strategic decision making.

These guidelines complement our driving force towards product leadership and cutting-edge production processes.
Achieving excellence is our primary objective, which can only be obtained through hard team working, striving for objectives that are consistent with the company set targets.

This is an ambitious challenge, but we have a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and never more than now, it is time to play to win.
