Long since hunting shotguns market has been decreasing. Reasons are several and different for both Italian and international markets. In our case also wrong information on our shotguns spread by operators working in the field as well as by respected newspapers have deeply affected our sales. We have tried to go on with our business fighting against market crisis, bureaucracy obstacles, international events that have caused a huge sales reduction too and also against those "deplorable informers" that today can finally rejoice. They can be glad because with deep regret we must announce that the company Vincenzo Bernardelli will suspend production at the end of February 2017 for a certain period of time. There will be no change in ownership, nor the brand will disappear but a pause was believed to be necessary to evaluate current situation and adopt the best solutions for the future. Employees, already informed, will be remitted due amounts, as well as suppliers that have or will have goods for manufacturing purposes over the next months of January and February. The company suspends its activity with a financial situation that is reason of pride for those who have managed it: any exposure with banks, any arrears with suppliers, wages always paid to employees with the guarantee it will be so until the end. Our expectation (almost a certainty) is that this is not a definitive goodbye, yet a “see you later” probably with other players. We are sure Vincenzo Bernardelli’s history will continue.
