Fabbrica Automatismi Apertura Cancelli (Factory for automatic gate-opening mechanisms) was founded in 1965, and its acronym FAAC immediately became synonymous with gate automation all over the world.
Quality, safety, reliability, satisfaction, passion and research: these are the values on which the company, which has literally opened the gates onto new markets, succeeded in developing a business whose progressive expansion led to the Group’s foundation.
