Falorni Glass Furnaces: the value of customization since 1958
The history of Falorni Gianfranco Srl is the story of a family that, for three generations of dedication, has enhanced a business philosophy that finds its signature in the passion for glass. It was Gianfranco Falorni who founded the core of a family-run business. Today the Company has two divisions, one specializes in artistic glass (Falorni Glass Furnaces), and the other works in the industrial sector (Falornitech), both active worldwide.
The Company was established in Empoli (southwest of Florence, Tuscany) in 1958. The Empoli region was a glass-manufacturing site: it is believed that glass manufacturing in this region began in the 13th century with the production of the ‘Verde’ glassware. The typical green-coloured glass was a consequence of the mineral content of the local sand, which was used in the creation of everyday objects, bottles, flasks, decanters, and other glass items used for dining.
The Company is the leader in the manufacturing of continuous and discontinuous furnaces with pre-heated air/natural gas and with oxygen/natural gas, for the production of soda-lime glass, lead crystal, borosilicate, and special glass. All the furnaces are handmade and tailored according to the glassmaker’s needs: you will never have a furnace like another one because every furnace is unique. Falorni Glass Furnaces has built over 300 furnaces, and all of them are still in operation worldwide.
Falorni Glass Furnaces provides counseling and consultancy services, design and ‘turn-key’ solutions for glasswork and glass studio: in addition to the melting furnace, we can supply equipment, raw materials etc.
