Founded in 1954, the company is now at the third generation, continuing to reflect in its business the original principles, constant innovation and a deep belief in quality.

The founder of the company, Luigi Bovone, started with the galvanic copper plating process to protect the silver layer of the mirror, which was soon followed by continuous improvements up to the production of complete lines for the production of mirrors.


In 1974 Bovone introduced a revolutionary straight-line bevelling machine, capable of working at more than double the speed compared to the machines of the most aggressive competitors!

Today a similar beveller can work up to 10 m / minute, maintaining an unmatched record that has lasted for 25 years!

In the following years Bovone continued to expand its range, with straight-line edging machines and lines for the production of laminated and bulletproof glass.

The development of new machines proceeded in parallel with the development of the internal organization: in the year 2000, Bovone obtained ISO 9001 certification.
