B&C’s Lorenzo Coppini receives Italy’s Order of Merit

Since 1923, the Order of Merit for Labour has been awarded to Italians who have been “singularly meritorious” in agriculture, industry and commerce, crafts, lending and insurance. Awarded in the single degree of Knight, the order is open to all Italians. This year, 25 new Knights of Labour were invested on 31 May, two days prior to Italy’s Republic Day. This year, B&C Speakers CEO and majority shareholder Lorenzo Coppini was one of two Tuscans to be bestowed with this national honour.

Upon receiving his electrical engineering degree in 1945, Lorenzo’s father Roberto Coppini started the business producing electroacoustic drivers and horns for the Italian market with his brother-in-law Fernando Borrani. Over the course of the past 75 years, BBC Elettroacustica Professionale’ became B&C Speakers Spa and became renowned as a world leader in the design, production and marketing of internal components for professional loudspeakers. In 2017, the family-run company, which has offices in Brazil and New Jersey, acquired Eighteen Sound Srl and Ciare.

Architecture graduate Lorenzo Coppini took on responsibility of sales and marketing manager at B&C Speakers in 1993 before assuming the title of CEO at the company in 2007. “The President awarded me the honour of ‘Cavaliere del Lavoro’, while our entire sector is in serious difficulty. For this reason, I want this recognition to ideally belong to all people working in the world of entertainment and live music, the first ones to stop but hopefully not last to start again.”
