1947: An Extraordinary Beginning

In 1947 the Company was founded by Giulio & Luigi Formenti and Fortunato Giovenzana in Veduggio, 20Km south of Como Lake, to produce furniture hardware. Shiny, but scarce raw materials like gold and silver were in demand by consumers throughout Europe and knobs in massive brass were the fashion items for the better society. As one of the first products, Formenti & Giovenzana Spa launched into the market a very cleverly made hollow brass handle which made it affordable to the masses. The fact that a version offered with a sand filling was in the range to give the feel of full material, was demonstrating the pragmatism and the clever approach of the team in those years. The philosophy behind the first products has persisted until today and has become the leitmotiv of over 900 worldwide employees in 2008.

A long history of performance

From the beginning, FGV became the trademark of Formenti & Giovenzana Spa for good products at the right price. Constantly researching new opportunities to offer clever solutions, the Company completed its range step by step to achieve a portfolio covering today hinges, slides, drawer systems, wall hanging brackets , wirework and a very large array of special solutions all destined to make good furniture affordable and add benefits for the end-consumer. Over the years, FGV has consolidated their image and became synonymous of cost-innovation. In parallel to thorough analyse of mainstream products and cost-cutting exercises to market clever solutions at the right price, FGV started to innovate gradually as the host of patents held by the Company clearly demonstrates.
