Yesterday, today and tomorrow
“When I founded the company, in the Sixties, I had some experience in the sector as I had been working as an artisan for some time. I had invented some special machines for processing hoses. I began producing accessories and later entered the mixer sector, together with my family.
Ours is a family-run business.
This is an important value which lives on in the company.
These days it is my children and family who run the company. The tap comes at the end of this long journey and has been vital in conveying our image, brand and style. Even though we were among the last manufacturers to enter this sector, in the space of fifteen years we have grown and specialised to such an extent that we now rank among the leading tap manufacturers in Italy.”
Carlo Frattini, President of FIMA Carlo Frattini spa
The history of FIMA (i.e. Italian acronym of Fabbrica Italiana Miscelatori Accessori) goes hand in hand with that of bathroom furniture and interior design and it is based on three specific values summarizing its design philosophy: #Green #Quality #Design. The Company – established in 1960 by Carlo Frattini – is dynamic, international and absolutely contemporary in nature which is expressed in innovative unique solutions in terms of design, quality and functionality, focusing on the environment and the environmental sustainability.
The FIMA2 factory has been designed in 2016 for a more efficient management of the different production stages with next-generation machinery and systems minimizing energy consumption. The new production building is also powered by the photovoltaic system installed in FIMA since 2011, and it is equipped with an innovative galvanic system with zero emission. It is using trivalent chrome, a non-carcinogenic material that does not produce pollution and significantly reduces the quantity of rejects, instead of hexavalent chrome (used today by 90% of the companies).
