Campagnolo Bike Parts & Accessories
Campagnolo S.r.l. designs, produces and distributes high-end components for racing bikes. It is present in over 30 countries with five branches and nine agencies. The main facility is located in Vicenza and employs about 690 workers. In March 2003, Campagnolo S.r.l. established Campagnolo Sportswear S.r.l. which produces and distributes Campagnolo-branded technical garments for cycling. In July 2004, Campagnolo S.r.l. founded Fulcrum Wheels S.r.l. which initially completed the range of high-end Campagnolo wheels in the racing bike sector and later expanded, this year, to the Mountain Bike sector with a full range of high-performance wheels. Campagnolo S.r.l. was founded in Vicenza in 1933 by Commendatore Tullio Campagnolo. The company soon expanded, focusing on the three fundamental concepts that would also characterise its future – performance, technological innovation, and quality of products and services. Campagnolo S.r.l. exports 73% of its output with the United States, Benelux, German, French and Spanish markets in the top slots, a crucial result for the Vicentine company, achieved at difficult and complex times on both the economic and political fronts. Campagnolo S.r.l. products are created using the most innovative technologies and production processes, with prime-quality materials from the aerospace industry: carbon fibre, titanium and aluminium alloys. And it is precisely in the carbon-fibre sector that Campagnolo, after dominating the aluminium world for decades, has now decided to make a name for itself with applications that were previously deemed unthinkable for the cycling market. It therefore comes as no surprise that the Composites Department, launched in 1998, currently employs one third of Campagnolo’s employees. Products in carbon fibre are constantly being created as a glance at the 2008 collection reveals: cranksets, front and rear derailleurs, integrated controls, headsets, seatposts, bottle cages and high and low-profile wheels all made from carbon fibre. Besides distinguishing themselves at the top in terms of innovation, quality and performance, Campagnolo products have also become the benchmark for design. This is testified by the prestigious Compasso d’Oro award from the Associazione Design Italiano in recognition of the Veloce groupset, Ergopower integrated controls and Shamal high-profile wheels. Campagnolo S.r.l. is not only a star of the cycling world, but of sport in general, as recognized by the Wall Street Journal which has named it as one of the most prominent sports brands in the world. This reputation has been earned not only through its countless racing successes, but also by virtue of the attention given to quality and to service that sets this company apart from all others.
