THE HISTORY OF IDEAS THAT TAKE SHAPE
Afa was founded in 1968 by the Francolini brothers.
Right from the beginning its main goals were hard work and concreteness. The company was called “Adria Frigo” and produced and sold only cabinets, refrigerators, refrigerating rooms and refrigeration products.
Soon the company developed and began to produce more and more things, and to give value to the design, production, and sale phases, evolving in a company specialized in producing complete furniture or pieces of furniture, where design, functionality, and technology match perfectly.
In the last decades, the upgrade and improvement process has never stopped. The new generation has worked since the beginning on strategic and operational plans, necessary to realize and achieve the aim of a careful and continuous expansion.
