Faber is named after a man called Marshal Abraham de Fabert, the first military governor of this former independent principality. He lies in a crypt classified as a historical monument in Sedan.

The company's activity was initially associated with the local textile industry, but then turned towards the booming food and packaging industries.

Beginning of the 80’s : Faber designs and manufactures feed-screws for packaging lines.

FABER recruits and reveals its new ambitions

A great industrial deployment project

FABER which is celebrating its 60 anniversary this year, designs and manufactures technical plastic parts and aluminum conveyors for packaging lines.

The Bazeilles-based company is growing steadily and with its 70 collaborators has a 10 million€ turnover.

In July 2017, The Faber Company joined the Rhône-Alpes industrial Elcom Group development, which also owns the Elcom Company.

This merger of the two companies is in line with the group's strategic ambition to create a solid player of European standing, with a steady and profitable growth.

Faber and Elcom complete each other, whether in terms of products or customers. The combination of know-how and skills of each will benefit both of them.
