Faber’s factory at Sassoferrato (production of hoods and induction hobs with integrated hood), which occupies an area of more than 60,000 square meters, is built on a know-how made up of technologies and people. “Our factory – explains Giorgio Rossi, Operation Director of the factory located in Central Italy – is unique in the world because Faber’s know-how is enclosed here. Which are the technologies, of course, but also and above all the expertise of our craftsmen. We constantly invest in the most innovative technologies on the market and work tirelessly on people’s skills, motivating them and involving them in our business project from a ‘people first’ perspective, seeking the continuous improvement. We work flexibly, focusing on quality and service to create value for both our company and our customers, pursuing the sustainability in terms of proximity to the external environment and of production cost efficiency”. The factory has over 350 highly specialized technicians and is attentive to the safety issue. The training is also a key aspect and in 2022 more than 1500 hours of training were organized for the employees. As regards to the innovation, numerous processes have been digitalised, the production has been verticalised and the employee skills are continuously updated. Recently, for example, a new latest generation laser and a system that uses artificial intelligence have been introduced to speed up the processes and make them even safer. Innovation also passes through sustainability: the new photovoltaic system, made up of 2,600 panels, ensures 30% of the available energy for the factory and saves up to 305 tons of CO2 per year. As for the near future, the company aims to adopt new production technologies, integrating them with the existing ones. In the medium-long term, however, the goal is to digitize the company, implementing new business models. Finally, the last, great goal is to remain competitive by maintaining the production in Italy.
