GALLIANO BORDIN, FOUNDER OF AKU, HAS PASSED AWAY.

After a period of illness, at the age of 85 Galliano Bordin, founder of AKU, passed away last night.

Active in the company until a few months ago, Galliano was a reserved but cordial person, esteemed in the sector and much loved by his collaborators, to whom he knew how to transmit in a simple and effective way the inexorable passion for a job that had accompanied him for the entire life.

The son of a family of shoemakers, Galliano, like many of his generation from Montebelluna, had in fact started working as a child in the world of footwear, demonstrating over time an extraordinary creative and technical ability in the manufacture of high quality products.

First by creating the Dinsport cross-country ski footwear brand and then the AKU brand, which became one of the main players in the mountain footwear market between the end of the 1980s and the early 1990s.

He leaves a company with a solid reputation on the international market, appreciated by the best operators in the sector precisely for the quality and unmistakable style of its models, many of which have been in the collection for decades and bear the Galliano signature.
The whole company with operational units in Italy, Romania and Serbia, together with several business partners in Europe, Asia and North America, huddles with affection around his wife Rita, their children Paolo, Silvana and Stefania.

United to carry on the history of AKU in the name of Galliano.

Bentornato!
