Verona, Italy, situated in the Northeastern region of the country and best known as the setting to William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, is also home to one of the fastest growing names in optics: KONUS. A family run business for more than 30 years, KONUS was founded in 1979 by Giuseppe Alberti and began as a general optics company, manufacturing telescopes, microscopes and binoculars for educational, professional and personal use.
Today, KONUS specializes in creating high-quality optics at an exceptional value to hunters and shooters worldwide. Italian companies are renowned for design and having a deep understanding for precision and quality. KONUS epitomizes this philosophy, creating optics with demanding specifications on the factory to ensure that each product matches a standard requirement before it is released.
“Our mission is to offer European design at very accessible prices, and that’s the business model we’ve been working under for 30 years,” says Stefano Alberti, Vice President and son of Giuseppe Alberti.
