The origin of Kong began in 1830 in a workshop at the foot of the Alps where Giuseppe Bonaiti gave rise to our story, writing important pages for Made in Italy.
The care to provide maximum protection for human lives, together with the dreams that men will “hang” while climbing peaks, led Bonaiti to export his products and philosophy throughout the world. His carabiners have become a real fixture for everyone who practices vertical disciplines. In 1977, the Bonaiti company changed its name to Kong, but its mission remains the same.
“To manufacture safety where risk is the protagonist”
The entire production cycle, from design to packaging, is made in our factory of 10,000 square meters, located in Monte Marenzo (LC), Italy, where each item of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is tested piece by piece and then sold throughout the world. We can proudly say that, first of all, we are “manufacturers”.
Research and innovation have brought continuous improvements and often real revolutions.
