Sabatino Faraone started producing aluminium doors and windows as a family-run business.
The company proved to be able to manufacture complex hi-tech items, and soon became an industrial company and opened new plants in the industrial area of Tortoreto.
The production of aluminium ladders, developed by Piero Faraone, started as a division of the door and window company, and continued as IMA SPA, an independent company. At that time, the aluminium ladder was a real innovation and Faraone's ladders had so much success that they replaced the classic wooden ladders.
Scalita was launched for the first time with adverts on national TV.
A key year Faraone launched the production of aluminium ladders and scaffold towers compliant with DIN and European standards, long before Italian Law 626 and Legislative Decree 81 entered into force. This particular attention to safety allowed Faraone to participate in the European Committee that was in charge of issuing the standards related to the construction of ladders. This was the year in which Faraone reached the top of the industry for the first time with important market share in Italy and abroad.
Faraone was the first company in Italy, and among the first in Europe, to have started the production of aerial platforms with telescopic aluminium columns in compliance with DIN and European standards.
Faraone tripled the production surface by opening a new plant in Tortoreto, and using new equipment to provide cutting edge and safe products.
Faraone opened Akala Faraone in Poland, a joint venture with their Polish partners, which then became 100% Faraone.
Faraone started the collaboration in Spain with Escalibur, which was fully acquired in 2007. Currently, in addition to household items, Escalibur operates in Spain and North Africa specialising in professional items.
Faraone's P105 self-propelled platform was launched for the first time.
Faithful to its tradition, Faraone opened “Faraone Infissi”. This specific division offers high-end, technological, and innovative products, all manufactured in Italy, and it stands out for its class-leading design and European Team.
This was the year in which Faraone started its collaboration with the University of Perugia. The result of their research project was a series of cutting edge tower scaffolds approved by the European standards to provide the utmost safety.
The range was enriched with the PKS platform series, designed to be transported easily. The PKS series is sold worldwide even with other brands.
The standard product does not guarantee the same safety standards required by the market. This is why Faraone developed the “customised” sector, which is currently a flagship of its production department and is managed by a team specialising in working at height.
The Polish market started to expand. The new plant in Goleniow, located in a 30,000 sq.m area, was established to manufacture the Top System scaffold towers for the European market and specific products for the Eastern European Markets.
This was the year in which 100% of Esalibur Seville, specialising in household ladders for the European market, joined the Faraone group.
A GREAT PROJECT FOR SMALL AERIAL PLATFORMS: ELEVAH AUTOMATED LADDERS, THE LADDER THAT RAISES YOU. Small automated aluminium machines for working at height carried out safely and quickly, thus saving time, fatigue, and money. In 2011 we began the production that, with continuous developments, allowed us to present our wide range of products in international exhibitions in 2014, which proved to be very successful. Today we present this catalogue, which is the result of the work of extraordinary people, who every day, with passion anddedication, manufacture our products the best way possible. As we keep improving, the product we provide tomorrow will be different and better from that provided today, also thanks to your advice.
