Why Choose a Bonomi Ball Valve?

Posted by Jason Welsford on Aug 5th 2016

Bonomi Ball Valves

Bonomi ball valves are known throughout the world for their exceptional quality. Solid construction...competitive pricing...are all synonymous with the Bonomi name, and those qualities are certainly found in their diverse line of brass, bronze, stainless steel, and lead-free ball valves.  The bottom line, Bonomi Valves are quickly becoming known throughout the industry as a serious competitor, and it has a lot to do with their humble beginnings almost 200 years ago.

History Behind the Brand Bonomi

From a bronze foundry in Italy, Carlo Bonomi began a company in 1828 that has flourished for seven generations. The company focused its efforts on brass valves soon after operations began, and has continued to do so ever since, repeatedly producing quality products at affordable prices.  Today,  Bonomi produces a large variety of valves, including several ball valve lines, and is a leader among the world market for technological advancements in ball valves.

Bonomi ball valves are produced from start to finish in Italy, and are sold in the United States via offices in South Carolina under Bonomi U.S.A., Inc.  By bearing in mind trends in international trading, savvy financial management, and consistency in manufacturing standards, Bonomi has remained a well known name in the valve industry.  As all Bonomi products do, Bonomi ball valves undergo thorough validation testing, including a double seal test, with a target of no less than 100% in performance.
