From inventing the aspiration hood for kitchens to testing innovation and state-of-the-art technologies, to make electric appliances as efficient and functional as possible. From a simple company based in the Marche region to being a leading firm in Italy, up to conquering the international market. All the above giving life to a district that provides business for local companies. The first six decades of Faber are the story of the success of a company that looks to the future, with the ambition of expanding further.
Happy birthday, Faber. Raise your glasses to the company that this year is celebrating its 60th anniversary of establishment. Its history is important, just like the history of all the Italian companies that contributed to making made-in-Italy a brand like no other. It is a story of passion, continuous research and of ambition. On 11 June 1955 Abramo Galassi founded the Faber Plast company, which at the time was a company specialised in processing plastic materials and synthetic resins. Just three years later the first aspiration hood was launched on the market. This completely new appliance was destined to change forever the way people live in kitchen environments. From that moment the company launched an unknown (at the time) appliance all over the world and ultimately created the so-called “Fabriano hood district”. The decades after the economic boom were dedicated to the development of innovative products that completely changed the concept of ‘kitchen’. The first chimney hood and reverse-T shape hood were launched, and they are still reference models in the hood sector. State-of-the-art technology and a product vision that is centred on function at the service of air quality made the company a leading brand worldwide. This is not all. In the 80s Faber started an internationalisation process that reached its peak in 2005, when it joined the Franke group, a world leader in the production of kitchen sinks. Today Faber produces nearly three million hoods per year and is present in 4 continents, with 7 manufacturing plants in 7 different countries. This important target was celebrated with a series of events dedicated to love for kitchens, held concurrently with the 2015 Expo in Milan. The first was in the most famous shop window in Milan, La Rinascente store in Piazza Duomo, which in June was the venue of the “La Cucina di Confine” [Border kitchens] visual project, in collaboration with Elle Decor Italia, Arkea by Faber for the Bianco e Nero [black and white] display stand. The company, with the Scavolini firm, will be present in the Art Design Box, at the doorstep of Expo 2015 in Rho, with 20 cooking shows to learn about all the secrets of Italian cuisine. More love for food, “street” food this time, is behind the FABER Street Food Academy, 10 full-immersion lessons to learn just about everything there is to know about some of the most famous and appreciated street foods in the world. Lastly, there is also an exclusive Limited Edition with the most successful hoods.
