Facom catalogues

99 years in the making

Established in Paris in 1918, Facom grew alongside the burgeoning industries of the 20th century. Starting with its iconic ‘101 spanner’, the company developed tools for the automobile and aviation market, bringing great innovation to its products and marketing. Among the industry firsts for Facom was the introduction in 1952 of the ‘Lifetime Guarantee’, which still applies for most tools in its catalogue.
