Our Company

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, making way for the introduction of automation in the pasta-making industry.

Research and innovation, 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 mentality, passion for work and love of family have been the driving forces for three generations, which have accompanied the 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, located in Collecchio, a specialized company in the press mixer field and from this synergetic partnership a new range of machines is generated, the largest and most innovative on the market, so much so that the most powerful pasta-drying lines in the world are created, gaining the trust and respect of the most important pasta producers.



40% of the pasta production lines installed all over the world are manufactured by FAVA S.p.A.
