We invented range hoods in a small workshop.

For sixty years we have created, designed and manufactured hoods to become a global leader that excels in high quality engineering and design. As an example of our global leadership, in Italy, one out of every two hoods sold in the market is a Faber hood.

We are an international group located globally in 8 nations and 3 continents with our production and commercial operations.

Our key strengths are commitment, dedication and being dynamic, which have always characterized Faber.

We transformed the range hood from a basic element in the kitchen to a beautiful and functional appliance.

Our products are the reason for our technology, the criteria for our design and the measurement of our quality.

Faber Worldwide Made in Italy
for a global leader

Commitment, dedication and being dynamic have always characterized Faber, making it into a global leader.

Faber is the first hood brand in Italy, where one out of every two range hoods sold is a Faber, and is sold globally with its own brand and leading local brands such as Roblin in France, Mepamsa in Spain and Spar in Argentina.

The company’s dedication and determination to achieve its goals have allowed it to grow from a local business to a European and global enterprise; thanks to the acquisition of a number of successful operations, Faber is present in 3 continents, with 7 plants in 7 countries: Italy, Sweden, France, Turkey, India, Mexico and Argentina, plus a marketing office in the United States and a representative office in Russia.

Ongoing global expansion and openness to new challenges brought Faber into the Franke Group, a major Swiss multi-national leader in Kitchen Systems in 2005 as part of the Hoods Business Unit.
