Because we are a family, because we have responsibilities,
because we want to play a part in change.
PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT ARE OUR FUTURE
At Bianchi, we design more than breaks, we also design the future. We see it as more respectful of the environment, more efficient and safer, more attentive to the needs of local communities and to personal well-being. Our programme of sustainable transition will now help us move towards this goal.
Bianchi is a multinational company with the HEART of a family business. A FAMILY made up of people who work TOGETHER, sharing a culture of reciprocal respect and GROWTH. A family that extends beyond the company itself, creating a rich COMMUNITY in which all the stakeholders (clients, suppliers, shareholders, employees, etc.) play an active role in a shared process of creating economic, social and environmental VALUE.
Together, we have built a GLOBAL organisation that is true to its LOCAL roots, spreading our passion for the Italian-style “break” worldwide. Our entrepreneurial mentality guides us with INNOVATION and SUSTAINABILITY in order to foster a future that is full of OPPORTUNITY for generations to come and for all the players INVOLVED with our organisation, with whom we create our solutions.
We believe that sustainability comes from within. This is why, from our position at the beginning of the value chain, we want to make ETHICALLY RESPONSIBLE decisions that can have a tangible IMPACT for all the stakeholders involved in the lifecycle of our products. We seek continuous improvement through design that is SUSTAINABLE (from a social, environmental and economic point of view) and that is reflected in every company process, and every service and solution that we offer. All of this while guaranteeing the best possible QUALITY in our products, as this also provides the foundation of our commitment for a sustainable future.
We design your sustainable break, the one you need, the one our future generations will benefit from.
