The three crossed swords, our symbol since the beginning, appeared in 1894 on one of the first Italian coffee grinders, born together with the trend for espresso that was spreading in those years. Next to this, we developed other products, always linked to the preservation of food: meat grinders, baggers, squeezers, pepper mills.
In the sixthies, with the italian industrial boom, FACEM plays a key role, becoming the leading supplier of Piaggio and Vespa. Hot forging becomes the main activity of the company.
The company is enriched in terms of competitive skills and know-how with the introduction of the first heat treatment line. FACEM patents also the innovative anneiling process Gleimax®, able to reduce the time and cost of treatment.
