Fundició Dúctil Benito was created in 1992, the year when the city of Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games. It was such an important year for this city, its people and so many around the world, that Fundicio Ductil Benito decided to name its first bench, Barcino, as a tribute to the capital of Catalonia. The company’s portfolio gradually expanded over the years to reach a complete offer of Urban Equipment.
