The Bartolini philosophy of Social Responsibility stems from the idea that we support and promote good things for those around us simply because it is the right thing to do for our society. We believe that making a real difference in the lives of others is an important part of living and working in our community. 

When we find partners who are invested in educating others, in caring and in making a difference, we want to be a part of that effort. Whether this means we directly support those organizations and individuals, speak highly of them or both, it is our belief that, together,  we can make a difference and create a better world because of it. Bartolini believes in music and the arts so when social responsibility and the arts partner together, we get excited about it.

Another aspect of our initiative to be good citizens is to be environmentally conscientious. Our packaging was chosen to be both recyclable and made from recycled materials. “When I was given the opportunity to head Bartolini, I knew I wanted to take a close look at processes, products and packaging to coincide with my personal philosophy of caring for our environment.” Says Clyde Clark, President of Bartolini. “We made a concerted effort to find ways to sync up our manufacturing and products with the environment in mind.”   Our pickup and module boxes are now made out of 80% recycled material and the boxes we use for harnesses  are made from 100% recycled materials.
