FABER COMPANY

Established in 1972, Faber Industrie has grown rapidly to become the leader in the production of seamless steel and composite cylinders (Types 1, 2, 3 & 4) for the storage of high-pressure gases. The world over, Faber has earned the best reputation for its high standards of quality and for its capability to comply with the most stringent specifications set down by International Bodies, Local Authorities and its customers. A complete suite of cylinders, with water capacity ranging from 1 to 700 litres, five modern factories, a competent fully trained workforce with a devotion to quality and flexibility, has made Faber a truly global supplier of high-pressure cylinders throughout the five continents. The four factories in the North East of Italy, and a new factory in Rayong (Thailand) with a total floor space of 100 000 m2 , manufacture more than one million cylinders per annum. With this high production capacity coupled with built in quality, Faber is viewed as the industry leader in the supply of high-pressure cylinders. All our factories are regularly inspected by independent Notified Bodies and audited according to the requirements of the pertinent Safety Authorities, multinational gas companies and vehicle manufacturers. Furthermore, all our factories are rigorously evaluated/accredited and managed as an ongoing component of Faber's Quality Management System ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, EN/ISO 13485, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.




Faber's Quality System

Starting from 1994 Faber's Quality System is certified according to ISO 9001.
Faber's Quality Management System is also certified according to ISO TS 16949 and ISO 14001.
In order to maintain a leading position in the market and satisfy our customers' growing needs for the 21st Century, Faber has achieved yet another milestone and gained certification for its quality system, this time according to EN ISO 13485:2012. This is the first of its kind for a gas cylinder manufacturer to achieve worldwide. The latter standard specifies the precise requirements for the quality management system that has to be used by our Company for the design, development, production, testing, installation and servicing of Medical Devices.

In this context, Faber’s Medical Device is defined as:
- Any medical high pressure gas cylinder which is fitted with a "CE" certified valves and regulators.
- Any breathing apparatus that can be used in combination with above.
Therefore Faber is ready to respond to the future needs of our customers who are interested in sourcing high pressure gas cylinders already equipped and classified as Medical Devices.
