PONTE GIULIO S.p.A. is a publicly traded company with headquarters near Orvieto, in the province of Terni, more specifically in the small town of Ponte Giulio. The company was founded in 1973 and its initial business was focused on manufacturing furniture intended for industrial construction. In the early 80s they turned their attention to planning and manufacturing bathrooms spaces intended for hotels and communal or public spaces. From there on, in a continuous process of specialization, their interest turned to the bathroom space, to manufacturing specific products for public bathrooms, bathroom structures to support the disabled and the elderly, child-oriented bathrooms, hotel bathrooms. Their interest in the healthcare environment pushed the company to expand its range of traditional supports for the disabled and to design and manufacture items to aid the washing and movements of patients. At the same time the BAGNOSICURO® (=”safe bathroom”) project expanded into the residential space and they designed and produced lines that took under consideration the aesthetics and usability needs specific to the private bathroom. They use colour, select materials and design. They are “solutions for bathroom safety”, which is the central idea of their business today.
