Breton USA 15th Anniversary
Breton USA celebrates its 15th anniversary since opening in 2004. Gianrico Filippetto founded Breton USA, with the support of Breton owners, Luca and Dario Toncelli, to bring localized parts and service to the growing North American client base.
Over the past 15 years, Filippetto has grown Breton USA into an award-winning icon in the industry, with 30 employees, six service locations, and over 1,000 installations nationwide.
In addition to being the 15th year operational, 2019 has proven to be a monumental year of achievements and milestones for Breton USA. Filippetto got promoted from Vice President to CEO. In this new position, he directed Breton USA towards even greater success.
In the last year alone Filippetto has added a new West Coast Service Location, extending the US-based hotline hours until 10 p.m. EST. What started as one location with two employees has since exploded across the nation with a total of six parts and service locations throughout the United States and Canada.
“Being the size of a company like Breton allows us to go above and beyond, we always have a technician ready for you. Not many other manufacturers in the world are equipped to provide this kind of service.” – President, Breton USA, Gianrico Filippetto
Filippetto lead Breton USA to the award of “Best of Innovation” by The International Surfaces Expo, and Stone World Magazine, for Miterwave. Miterwave is the software/ hardware package innovation that allows all mitering, including inside corners to be executed on one machine, the Combicut.
Miterwave technology is featured in the most recent issue of Stone Update Magazine for its ability to excel, where other mitering methods fail, specifically on the most difficult surfaces to miter, like non-planar surfaces, ceramic, and very thin materials. There is a reason Breton client have nicknamed the Combicut “the hardest working employee in their shop.”
“We at Breton are extremely proud of how so, so many clients choose our machines, over and over again, it is a testament to the undeniable quality of our parts, craftsmanship, and above all, service available around the clock. This is one of the reasons why Breton is a world leader in stone, just ask our thousands of returning clients worldwide.” – President, Breton USA, Gianrico Filippetto
As much hard work and time go into our machinery, we humbly attribute our success to our customers. We look forward to growing our relationships and cultivating new ones, thank you for your support. Cheers to another 15 years!
