Quality according to Ghidini
Our philosophy has always been to keep alive the vocation of manufacturers and to have complete control of the quality of the products that come out from our production lines.
The precise company choice to keep production in Italy has also contributed to guaranteeing over the years the maintenance of those value aspects that go beyond the product: our history, our culture, the design, the “know-how”. Values that can be traced back to and included in the concept of MADE IN ITALY.
The plant located in Asia also works and produces with the logic and parameters of the Italian facilities. Today, thanks to the 4 production and logistic units in Lumezzane, Gussago, Castegnato and Huizhou City (China), we can satisfy all the requests coming from the various countries of the world.
Latest generation production cycles, strictly controlled, from the raw material to the finished product, combined with trained and specialized personnel, guarantee the quality that has always distinguished the Ghidini product. Thanks to our logistic bases, fully computerized, with a storage capacity of over 24,000 pallets, we can guarantee the complete fulfilment of orders within 72 working hours.
Technology at the service of our ideas
We manage the entire supply chain internally, from the design idea to 3D rendering, up to the creation of prototypes, to the construction of moulds for mass production.
We use high precision machinery, suitable for mono and bi-material injection molding, metal casting, finishing and final assembly of each single component. Each phase, carefully controlled, allows us to guarantee maximum reliability and rigorous quality control of all stages of production.
In recent years, all investments have been aimed at equipping the production lines with the best technologies to guarantee maximum production yields and in compliance with the most stringent parameters linked to environmental sustainability regulations.
OVER 80 YEARS OF HISTORY,
BETWEEN TRADITION AND INNOVATION,
BETWEEN AESTHETIC RESEARCH AND FUNCTIONALITY
WITH FIRM ROOTS IN ITALY.
A story of passion and evolution.
The company, which takes its name from its founder Cipriano Ghidini, was founded in 1938, before the Second World War.
Cipriano began his activity in a small workshop in Lumezzane, in the hamlet of Montagnone, close to the Gobbia stream, where brass weights were produced for scales, followed by corkscrews and nutcrackers.
The origin of the activity, however, dates back to a few years earlier, in the hamlet of Premiano, where his father “Bepi” had a small foundry, in which the same weights for scales and brass spoons were made by hand cast in the ground.
Hence the start of our evolution.

WE HAVE EVOLVED FROM AN ARTISAN COMPANY TO AN INDUSTRY, THANKS TO A UNIQUE KNOW-HOW, CUTTING-EDGE SOLUTIONS AND A TRUE PASSION FOR a production of QUALITY.
This is our philosophy.
PRECISELY FOR THIS REASON WE CONSTANTLY SEEK THE HIGHEST QUALITY IN THE TOOLS WE PRODUCE, IN ITALY AND IN OUR FACTORY IN CHINA, AWARE THAT THIS VALUE IS THE RESULT OF A SKILLFUL MIX OF IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS: RESEARCH, INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY, CULTURE AND TRADITION.
Globalization and increasingly sophisticated communication technologies have shortened the distances between the various continents.
The export strength of the eastern countries has generated a strong threat to the survival of many small and medium-sized Italian and European manufacturing companies.
Ghidini, to stem and contrast this situation, intensifies its investment plan on its Italian production units and in 2006 acquires a factory in HUIZHOU in China.
Important investments, consistent with the corporate culture that wants, with this choice, to maintain its identity as a producer.
Ghidini can thus be considered the only Italian company in its field to have an international production organization that will make it unique, strong, competitive, and complete in its proposal.
