Manital was started in Vobarno near Brescia, Northern Italy, in 1990.
In 2004, after Manital’s export had spread to all five continents, a new plant was opened in Gavardo, also near Brescia. This new building now houses both Manital’s offices and production plant.
As Mr. Luigi Bigoloni, its founder, stated, the Company’s strategy, which has been strictly pursued till the present day, is “to couple 100% Made in Italy design and production so as to combine aesthetics with innovation and quality”.
Manital ensures that each single product is manufactured with the utmost care employing only the best materials and with the help of the most sophisticated industrial technologies such as the die forming technology.
The design of Manital products comes as a result of our collaboration with internationally renowned designers and architects such as Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas, Sottsass Associati, Mario Mazzer and Giovanni Crosera, Pedrizzetti Associati, Maurizio Giordano e Roberto Grossi, Davide Mercatali, Valentina Downey, Itamar Harari, Hot Lab yatch & design.
As it grew, Manital succeeded in expanding onto international markets and now owns a sister company in Spain, plus a range of units located throughout Europe, Russia and Australia, in Canada, USA, the Arab countries, India, South America and many other countries.
Manital’s extremely wide catalogue comprises 85 ranges of handles for a wide variety of finishes with a total 600 products choice, all of them proudly and exclusively made in Italy. In 2008 Manital obtained the ISO 9001 Quality Certification.
