The quality of the brand's products is proven by its long history: more than 100 years of production. Their activity began in the 1910s and it has grown significantly thanks to the great innovations of the 20th Century. From the evolutions in the world of transport (automobiles, railways and aeronautics), the brand has expanded and has imprinted its seal on the largest construction sites of the century. Since its founding in Paris in 1918, the firm has always been a pioneer in its field and it is now widely known for its products.
At the end of the First World War, the young engineer Louis Mosès founded the company Franco-Américaine de Construction d'Outillage Mécanique - hence the name FACOM. The term Franco-Américaine is no coincidence: it was chosen to give to the company an idea of reliability, considering that in the previous years the Americans had distinguished themselves on the international scene for their war materials and the progress of industrial techniques. The first milestone for the company was the production of one single tool during the first year of activity: the well-known 101 wrench, also known as Madame 101, which remained in production until the 1960s.
From that moment, the company's history has been enriched by many new products. The first market is for wrenches (such as the monkey spanner), produced in the new factory in Gentilly, on the outskirts of Paris. In the 1920s, as the automobiles sector started to grow, the business signed its first contracts in the automobile field with Renault and Peugeot. The first catalogue is dated back to 1924, and, in the middle of the decade, the firm began to introduce the first Stillson-type wrench on the French market. Another sector in which the company established itself is the one of aeronautics, in particular through its constant relationship with Air France. By the 1930s, the catalogue counted over 500 references.Their open-end, box ring spanners, as well as the famous "Royal" and "Idéale" spanners and pipe wrenches became widespread and, in 1937, the first socket sets and the first chrome spanners appeared on the market.
After the end of the second World War, the "Glorious Thirty" started. During these three decades, the firm grew and became a real multinational, with an average growth in turnover of 13% per year. Among the most important innovations of the postwar period are the first pullers, ratchets, and the first adjustable spanners with automatic clearance compensation. In 1948, the patent for the torque wrench was filed, and two years later the first handle screwdriver Isoryl debuted. In 1952 the company decided to grant the lifetime guarantee to all its tools, for the first time in the European industrial world.
The 1970s symbolised the brand's dominance: new offices were opened in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United States and Spain. In the first half of the decade, the company entered the Paris Stock Exchange and further developed its catalogue. In 1983, the business was awarded as the best company in Europe for hand tools and the third worldwide: this was also due to its international dimension. A third of its products were sold outside France. At the beginning of the 1990s, the company produced up to 200,000 pieces per day.
Moreover, the group dedicates 3% of its turnover to research and development and constantly strives for innovation. Titanium tools for McLaren, in the automotive field, can be cited as examples. Similarly, the brand is a leading player in aviation: Air France, British Airways, KLM, Singapore Airlines or Malaysian Airlines, to name just a few, as well as Airbus, rely on the company for maintenance and work equipment. The nineteenth edition of the catalogue has more than a thousand pages and about 10,000 reference codes, a real "Bible of tools".
The catalogue includes over 10,000 references but they keep introducing new products, and they are always striving for perfection, testing their tools in extreme conditions. The range is divided in three main sections: general tooling, specialist tooling, workstations and tool storage.
