Originally founded in 1955 as a company working with plastic and synthetic resin materials, Faber began making kitchen extractor hoods in 1958, producing the first plexiglas model and establishing what is now known as the “Fabriano hood district”. The company’s sheer passion and determination have seen it grow first in Europe and then into a global organisation, thanks to a series of acquisitions of different manufacturing sites. Faber now extends to 4 continents with plants in 7 countries, including Italy, Sweden, France, Argentina, Turkey, India and Mexico, plus a sales rep. office in Russia and USA, making Faber one of the three largest manufacturers of kitchen extractor hoods in the world. The Group leads the sector in Italy, where one out of two hoods sold is made by Faber, and is present all over the world through its own brand as well as leading local brands. Continuous internationalisation and willingness to accept new challenges has led Faber to become part of Franke, the Swiss multi-national leader in Kitchen Systems.
