Nikolaus Bagnara AG
Letting tradition grow. Everything began way back in 1948. Nicola Bagnara founded a small stonemason company in Appiano in Northern Italy. A great deal of diligence, hard work, and great passion for natural stone have allowed us to grow over the course of three generations into one of the most successful international natural stone companies in the world. In addition to a number of locations in Northern Italy (around Verona) we distinguish ourselves through an efficient, international purchasing and sales network which is active in, among other places, Australia, Scandinavia, South Korea, the USA, Africa, and Brazil. In spite of our constant growth, our traditional company has continued to remain a family operation that is socially committed.
Reliable quality management, strict controls in all production stages, as well as ongoing development, accompanied by continued investments make us stand out as a company.
Bruno Bagnara and his sons Philipp and Niko, who now manage the business, place great importance on highest-level strategic management and a specific sensitivity to the smallest changes in demand and supply on the natural stone market.
It is with great passion that we dive into the uniqueness of nature. The great variety of natural stone is virtually unlimited, and that reflects the different histories of origin. The most varied of components, subjected to the elements over millions of years, turn every piece of natural stone into something completely unique. As a result of our love for this noble material, we have made it our quest to turn this treasure of nature into something visible and accessible to all.
The continuous search for new materials constantly extends our product range. With more than eight hundred types of natural stone, we can approach each project by working with the ideal stone that both meets the technical requirements and satisfies the stylistic desires.
A 360° view
In the meantime, our company continues to grow. We run our own quarries in Zimbabwe, Spain, and the USA, and have exclusive business agreements with many quarries worldwide. It is possible to trace the entire production process within the company, from the quarry through the raw block and the slab to the finished final product. This 360°service is one of our factors for success which offers our customers a guarantee of reliability and durability. That makes us a trustworthy contact for private customers, for stonemasons, for architects, for designers, all the way to project engineers of large commercial and residential buildings and skyscrapers.
Every day, raw blocks from all over the world are brought to us to Italy. The block storage facilities of Rivoli Veronese and Massa Carrara are located at the core of the world's most important trading centre for natural stone. An almost limitless variety of natural stone of unique quality, which reaches its destination via well thought-out logistics, is stored there.
Hundreds of slabs, of various sizes, thicknesses and finishes, are produced every day. Our plants and showrooms of over 10,000 m2, contain more than 800 exclusive natural stone types from all over the world, ready for delivery.
