Fabbrica Automatismi Apertura Cancelli (FAAC) was founded in 1965 in Zola Predosa by the far sighted genius of a visionary entrepreneur from Bologna, Giuseppe Manini, who anticipated the arrival and importance that the automation of residential and commercial accesses would have had in every day life.
FAAC focused immediately on the quality and reliability of hydraulic technology constituting in a few years a presence on the Italian market which still today is synonymousfor gate automation. The following years saw FAAC more involved in its role as market innovator growing faster and faster: in this way the hydraulic technology was developed to unmatched levels on the international panorama while FAAC was the first to perceive and develop miniaturized electronic controls with micro processors and portable transmitters to improve the ease of use for the clients.
Between 1990 and 2007, the profound nature of innovator and “pioneer” in that sector resulted in the filing of 42 international patents of its own design solutions. During the last 10 years FAAC has benefited from the knowledge developed internally in order to enlarge, again as leader, the product range, passing from the first residential products to automation solutions and commercial and industrial access control: automatic sliding and swing leaf doors, automatic barriers, automations for industrial doors and traffic bollards.
The attention to the quality of components used and to the production processes, the reliability of products and not only the respect but the systematic anticipation in applying the most demanding European standards regarding security, are since 1965 a fundamental element in the FAAC philosophy.
FAAC Group has grown constantly in the automation and access control market until reaching the dimensions of an international industrial group, with more than 1000 employees in 5 continents, 12 production plants in Europe, 14 owned commercial branches in the most relevant countries and a network of more than 80 countries served by official distributors.
