Our history

Tradition and innovation

Bordogna was born on the banks of the Oglio river, by will of its founder Ottorino Bordogna. In Palazzolo sull’Oglio, his native town, the entrepreneur opened his “workshop” in 1943. Originally the business consisted of making metal components for the textile sector and radiators for the plumbing sector. In the 1950s his primary activity was characterized by a multitude of sheet metal workings in general.

 In 1955, together with his son Tullio, the company transformed from a small artisan “workshop” to an industry. Following this process, the purchase of innovative machinery – which increased the production capacity – and the ambitious projects of Ottorino and Tullio gave rise to the need to build new production facilities in the southern area of Palazzolo sull’Oglio which would later become the current industrial area.

Our history

A continuously expanding company

Towards the end of the Seventies, based on the experience gained in the field of military supplies, Tullio decided to invest in a new adventure in the security sector. He tasks his technicians with designing safes and armored cabinets, consequently starting his own commercial brand and the related creation of a sales network.

In the mid-eighties, Tullio’s sons joined the company. With their arrival, the product ranges were rapidly modified and expanded which would allow BORDOGNA s.p.a. to expand the commercial network covering the entire national and foreign territory.

Bordogna S.r.l. began its certification journey in November 1996 by defining and implementing its own quality management system. Following the inspections carried out by the DNV (SINCERT accredited certification body), the system was declared compliant with the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standard. The family of ISO 9000 standards is identified in a set of rules and guidelines aimed at the control and implementation of quality management systems in a company, developed by the International Standards Organization with the aim of improving the efficiency of production processes and service provision.

It also has the European ECB•S product certification and the NOS (Secrecy Clearance) issued by the National Security Authority up to top secret NATO level. The quality system certification demonstrates the company’s desire to provide not only high quality products (many of which are certified according to the European Standard EN 1143-1 and EN 14450), but also a service compliant with the high standards required by customers.
