THE BIRTH OF KONG The growing demand for carabiners, together with the issues of interior space, drove the management to decentralize certain processing stages. In the 1970s, the department that produced carabiners, which was confined in a small space, needed a larger area for the cohesiveness of operations, and for its development. The warehouses of Giuseppe e Fratelli Bonaiti could not be extended due to the administrative constraints imposed by the Regulatory Plan of Calolzio. In 1977 the company purchased a plot covering 30000 m2 in Monte Marenzo, so that they could build a new production site, to which they would transfer the manufacture of carabiners. 1977, right here in Monte Marenzo, saw the launch of Kong S.p.a., the only production plant where still today over 3000 products are distributed and sold all over the world. In order to create a corporate image that was recognizable in the countries to which it exported its goods, in 1982 the company registered the name and trademark Kong in various countries: the current and well-known oval that recalls the outline of a carabiner.
Made in Italy In 1977, the Bonaiti company changed its name to Kong
