From 1978 to 1993 Åge Bogelund and Helmer Thomsen headed Bari's pipeproduction. Helmer Thomson bought the company in 1993 re-naming it to "Bari Piber Helmer Thomsen". The workshop moved to more convenient buildings in Vejen. Bogelund, who created very respectable freehands of his own during the time at Bari got lost somehow after 1993.

Bari's basic conception fundamentally stayed the same for decades: series pipes pre-worked by machines and carefully finished by hand. Thus no spectacular highgrades but solid, reliable every day's companions.

The most famous series are the smooth "Classic Diamond" and the blasted "Wiking".

"Excellent" is a Bari second.
