Following a 35-year partnership, Sonus faber has announced that they have acquired the De Santi woodworking factory.

Sonus faber has acquired the De Santi woodworking factory in San Martino di Lupari (PD), Italy, following a 35-year relationship. The facility has now become the official woodworking department within the company.

Sonus faber began working with Luciano De Santi and his factory in 1986, the two companies united by a shared passion for Italian heritage and craftsmanship.

To keep up with increased global demand, Sonus faber has already made a commitment to expand the woodworking department, employing new CNC machines and painting capabilities, plus extending the factory footprint. In welcoming the De Santi team, Sonus faber is closing the collaborative gap between the design, engineering and woodworking teams to enable more innovative designs and unique customisation opportunities, plus decreased production lead-time and increased output.

Sonus faber CEO Jeff Poggi said: “I am thrilled to welcome Stefano De Santi and the entire De Santi team to Sonus faber. The quality construction of our wooden cabinet is a strong differentiator for Sonus faber and an integral part of our brand’s identity and resulting natural sound. This acquisition is a natural progression of our 35 years of collaboration, and I look forward to the amazing innovations that we will develop together as one family of artisans.”

The acquisition of De Santi is effective immediately, allowing Sonus faber to continue its growth, delivering high-end, handcrafted audio equipment around the world. Following the acquisition, Stefano De Santi will be named Sonus faber’s Head of Woodworking, overseeing the department, including the current De Santi staff, who will remain in their present roles, with new staff to be added to expand capacity in the coming months.

UK readers can hear Sonus faber speakers through their UK distributor, Fine Sounds’, network of dealers.
