Mr. Sabatino Faraone sets up the company, which still bears his name, in an approximately 80 squares meters area. The team is composed of a workman and tree apprentices.
The company moves to a 2000 square meters new corporate headquarter.
Mr. Faraone joins his first worker, a surveyor and an accountant, building with them a new company named SEVA, whose purpose was to follow minor projects.
The company produces its first aluminum staircase. Two years later, this structured innovation process has been implemented in IMA (now Faraone Industrie S.p.A.), a new company’s division led by Piero Faraone (Sabatino’s brother).
In the 80’s Faraone Group begins a sustained period of growth, especially in 1988, when they launched the revolutionary “SOLARIA”: a ventilated double-skin facade with thermal transmittance to a value of 0.94 W / m² K and noise reduction up to 55 dB (data processing and certification: ISTITUTO GIORDANO). Those data are still relevant today.
The group gains significant knowledge and expertise in producing aluminum staircases and continues to grow considerably.
Faraone broaden its horizon producing new types of curtain walls, something never seen before in the Italian market, providing a complete set of components and ensuring quality and professionalism.
Faraone takes part at SAIE 2, in Bologna, and presents the first steel&glass staircase, designed by the architect Mauricio Cardenas Laverde. It was an important step toward becoming a more recognized international reality, setting research and innovation as undisputed Faraone Group’s trademarks.
New exclusively designed products find their ways to market: glass, steel-like aluminum and stainless steel banisters and balustrades.
As the result of the ambition to succeed and continuous improvements, new innovative items enjoy the range of products: niche creations give the company a strong distinctive identity, the right effort to overcome any crisis.
