This Cento-based Company, among the world's leading companies for the production of pasta equipment, was founded in 1937 by Augusto Fava, who designed and patented the first machines capable of drying the product in continuous, uninterrupted process, making way for the introduction and subsequent promotion of automation in the pasta-making industry.
Research and innovation, which have always represented the spirit of the company, led to the development of high temperature technology in 1970 under the guidance of Augusto's son Enrico, the new head of the Company. These ideals continue even now to play a fundamental role in the Company's strategy for satisfying its customers' demands in a constantly evolving market.
Industrial know-how, enthusiasm for the work and love of family have been the driving force for three generations, which has accompanied this Company in reaching important goals. It is in 1995, at a time when the technology and business activities of the Company are rapidly evolving, that Fava buys 50% of Storci of Collecchio, a specialized company in the sector of presses.
From this time on, Fava will construct the largest and most innovative presses seen to date, thus creating the most powerful pasta-drying lines in the world and gaining the trust and respect of companies in the sector the world over.
