The Brand is Thrilled to Officially Add the Facility to its Family after Over 35 Year of Partnership.
Sonus faber is thrilled to announce the acquisition of the De Santi woodworking factory in San Martino di Lupari (PD), establishing the facility as the official woodworking department within the company. Sonus faber began working with Luciano De Santi and his factory in 1986, bonded by a shared passion for Italian heritage and craftsmanship. The two companies have been partners and collaborators for nearly four decades, building loudspeakers known around the world for their quality and performance.
To keep up with increased global demand, Sonus faber has made a commitment to invest in the expansion of the woodworking department, employing new computer numerical control (CNC) machines and painting capabilities with an extended factory footprint. In welcoming the De Santi team, Sonus faber will close the gap in collaboration between the design, engineering, and woodworking teams to enable more innovative designs and unique customization opportunities with decreased production lead-time and increased output.
“I am thrilled to welcome Stefano De Santi and the entire De Santi team to Sonus faber,” said Sonus faber CEO Jeff Poggi. “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.”
Expressing his satisfaction for the acquisition, De Santi Srl owner, Stefano, said, “I’ve always loved the Sonus faber product philosophy, we grew together over the last 35 years. The De Santi team and I are very happy to become part of the Sonus faber family, finally able to dedicate our work exclusively in building these pieces of acoustic art”.
The acquisition of De Santi will be 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.
