Quality and tradition to serve the modern stationary and art-craft shops
FARA began the activity in Milano during 1951 thanks to the skills of Roberto Bosello that decided to start his own shop for the production of rulers for drafting tables.
The company in few years achieves very important results thanks to the precision and quality of its production.
In 1966 the company moves to the present site in Grisignano di Zocco near the city of Vicenza; at this time most of the drafting tables in Europe and USA are equipped with FARA rulers.
The following years requires a change in the production as the drafting tables are getting replaced from the PC, FARA decides then to start to move the production to drawing items for the students and year after year more and more new items are included in the catalogue:
- Drawing boards
- T squares in Plastic, acrylic, aluminiumand wood
- Drawing tubes
This to create a one stop shop for the shops looking for quality drawing items.
Since 2008 the offer is completed by the distribution agreement signed with ADEL Turkey (part of Faber Castel) for pencils and colours, with Westcott (Acme group) for scissors and cutting tooling and with Standardgraph/DUX for sharpeners and technical drafting items.
Today we are recognized as one of the most reliable supplier of drawing instruments and 30% of our turnover is coming from the export sales in Europe and USA and Central America.
We are still working after 50 years with the same philosophy of the beginning: quality and service as we are sure this is the reason of our success.
