FACOM: a Short History of Professional Tools Production

The quality of FACOM products is proven by its long history: celebrating one hundred years in 2018. Their activity that began in the 1910s and it has grown significantly thanks to the great innovationos 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, FACOM has always been a pioneer in its field and it is now widely known for its products.

At the end of First World War, on the 8 May 1918, 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, composed by less than 10 workers, was the production of one single tool during the first year of activity: the well-known 101 spanner, also known as Madame 101, which remained in production until the 1960s.

A Comprehensive Catalogue of Tools: Wrenches, Screwdrivers, Ratchets and much more

From that moment, FACOM'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, FACOM signed its first contracts in the automobile field with Renault and Peugeot. The first catalogue dates back to 1924, and, in the middle of the decade, FACOM began to introduce the first Stillson-type box spanner on the French market. Another sector in which FACOM established itself is the aeronautics sector, in particular through its constant relationship with Air France, which was founded in 1933. By the 1930s, the catalogue had grown dramatically and counted over 500 references: this fact lead to a great growth of FACOM hand tools. Their open-end spanners, box spanners, ring spanners, 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: thirty years of great economic prosperity. Over these three decades, from being a medium-sized company, FACOM grew and became a real multinational, with an average growth in turnover was 13% per year. These were the years of innovation in industrial technologies: first of all, workshops and production were automated and the role of electronics and information technology grew; new materials, from metals to plastics, and forging techniques also became an important factor. 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 FACOM decided to grant the lifetime guarantee to all its tools, for the first time in the European industrial world.

FACOM is leader in the production of Automotive and Aerospace Tools

The 1970s symbolized FACOM's European dominance: new branches 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 developed further its catalogue, which included more than 4,000 products. In 1983, FACOM was awarded as the best company in Europe for manual tools and the third worldwide: this is also due to the international dimension of the company, which sells a third of its products outside France. At the beginning of the 1990s, the company increased the production from 50,000 pieces per month, produced at the beginning of the 1950s, to 200,000 pieces per day in 1993. 

Moreover, FACOM it is a multi-specialist company operating in very different markets: mechanics, electricity, electrical engineering, aeronautics, automotive, just to name a few. The FACOM group dedicates 3% of its turnover to research and development and constantly strives for innovation: for example, the titanium tools for McLaren, in the automotive field. Similarly, FACOM 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 FACOM for maintenance and work equipment. The nineteenth edition of the FACOM catalogue has more than a thousand pages and about 10,000 reference codes, a real "Bible of tools".
