Ferranti: Animal cages and Kennels
A story made of creativity, brain, passion, innovation, evolution, started as a game with clay nests for pigeons sold under the house, which has reached the digital economy. History of a company that grows putting in first place the customer and the pets needs.
The company was born in the 80s from the creativity, brain and passion for mechanics of Enzo Bonacci born in 1947. Taking up the challenge by his friend, pigeon breeder, about design a mold to be able to make clay nests by hand, Enzo invented a real machinery, a unique prototype of its kind, which automatically made the nests for pigeons at a lower cost than the market price. The unstoppable creativity leads him to merge his passion for "Lancia" cars in the designed machinery, leading the mechanism, with a disused steering wheel of the car of his dreams.
Shortly after the first sales of nests arrived, in the shop of agricultural equipment under the house, owned by his wife Claudia Ferranti.
The desire to innovate induce the founder, on his own design, to create the iron cages to insert the nests.
Therefore he began to look around attending the first sector fairs with the intent to innovate and improve his products; the entrepreneurial drive had now started, he went on to build cages for chickens, for quails, for rabbits, for all the farmyard animals that were raised in the area.
Towards the end of the 1980s, the business expanded to include the pet sector and the first boxes, fences, cages, kennels for dogs and cats with an exclusive design and excellent quality characteristics. In a short time, the company became a point of reference not only for private animal lovers, but also for professional dog and cat lovers, for animal protection organizations, for public security.

Michele Bonacci, son of the founder Enzo, in 2000 takes the company into the digital economy, offering customers the possibility, through the e-commerce website and various digital media, to have the greatest number of information and images on the products, buy comfortably from home and receive the goods at home.
