Punctuality and made to measure quality are the ingredients of success at historic Bulloneria Villa
In the beginning there were only screws and bolts, to which were later added components for two-wheeled vehicles, both bikes and motorbikes. In 1946, the year of its founding, this was the co-re business of Bulloneria Villa in Milano, which was soon totally ab-sorbed by the Doniselli family and its partners to offer, from the start, quality products and services. “In 1979 Bulloneria Villa di Doniselli e C became an Spa (shareholder’s company) with the participation of other partners – explains Marcel-lo Doniselli, the present president who runs the historic company wi-th his partner and Ceo, Elena Persi-co. “Today we supply nuts and bolts for systems in the petroleum, ener-gy, and environmental sector. Key sectors, whose clients demand ma-ximum safety. But we present our-selves not just as simple suppliers, but as partners, and we guarantee continual supplies without down-time, alongside of the fact that we are Iso 9001 certified”. The quali-ty system at this Milanese company follows the entire production line from design to creation, thereby creating no waste. Service is custo-mized in the company where some manual machines are still used, and these permit a minimum order size of even just a few pieces with rigo-rous just in time production.
“Few nowadays do this kind of work. 90% of the products we ma-ke are special and based on drawin-gs. For the mechanical assembly sector, we ensure distribution also in Kanban mode”, affirm the ow-ners. At the center of operations at Bulloneria Villa is client satisfaction and continual improvement. A win-ning philosophy, confirmed by ear-nings in constant growth which did not stop even during the dar-kest moment of the economic cri-sis. “We believe in young people who are a majority on our staff. And respect for employees, clients, and suppliers has always guided our en-trepreneurial path. We have also in-vested in the protection of the envi-ronment and in energy savings, and for years we have been supporters of the non-profit charity organiza-tion, The Children of the Fairies”. For the future, Bulloneria Villa is focusing, as always, on the goal of “zero defects” to serve the global markets with renewed enthusiasm and far-sightedness.
