History

Our warehouse in Bristol, Rhode Island, is your primary source for KONG products, designed for high-angle climbing, work-on-height and technical rescue.

History

Kong, Italy, a Bonaiti company, was formed in 1981 but its manufacturing tradition dates back to 1830 when Giusseppe Bonaiti began building metal snap hooks and harness parts by the shores of Lake Como in Northern Italy.

Today Kong S.p.A. manufactures some of the world’s best climbing, safety and rescue equipment in its modern factory in Monte Marenzo just south of Lecco. The company is managed by a sixth generation Bonaiti. 95% of all Kong products are manufactured inside the Kong factory.
