Sales and marketing

B&B Italia Divisione Contract is an authoritative answer to the market’s growing demand for a concept that can express uniqueness, distinction, character. It is a world in which the expectations of the designer are always very high: in order to supply suitable solutions, it is necessary to listen to or sometimes get a feeling for the client’s needs, identifying languages and supports that fulfill this important task each and every time. B&B Italia Divisione Contract makes the accredited experience of its professionals available in order to achieve this goal.

Operations

Involved and active at all stages of the project , the Operations department develops the project, devising the products by making detailed construction drawings and building prototypes, often complete mock-ups. All of this allows the design quality of each piece to be checked ; to discover any problems in its construction; to add improvements; to discuss with client and designer, even once the works are underway, so as to share choices and solutions that are “made to measure”
in every sense.

Logistics

Logistics according to B&B Italia’s Contract Division: is a package of services that organises, coordinates and supplies products and materials adhering to the terms of the contract. The nerve centre of this activity is the 12,750 sqm warehouse space, through which the raw-materials, semi-finished products and finished products are managed.
