500 Years of Business
Almost 500 years of business have enriched Beretta with enormous experience and knowledge
Almost 500 years of business have enriched Beretta with enormous experience and knowledge which allowed it to develop specific and superior technology in the field of precision mechanics. Throughout time, the company eventually became larger and larger. The covered surface area of the factory rose from 10,000 m2 at the beginning of the 1900s to its current size of over 110,000 m2.
The production departments feature fully automated work centres and highly qualified craftsmen, a prerequisite for achieving the degree of precision and high quality contemplated by its design projects. The design department has advanced systems for calculating pressure by using the finite elements method. The laboratories are equipped for research in impulsive-dynamics applied to the weapon-ammunition system, for metallographic analyses and fatigue tests.
Production and Design work together with Marketing and Sales to develop new products and meet the customers’ requirements.
Marketing and Sales also use modern IT systems (Internet and Intranet) to provide the maximum backup for the peripheral organizations and promptly meet market demand.
