ITALIAN DESIGN
Here at Fulgor Milano we value the quality of our products. A common thread runs through the story of Fulgor Milano that is closely tied to the history of a family with deep roots in the fabric of the Veneto region of Italy. The story begins when an enlightened entrepreneur embarked upon an ambitious journey of applying his artisanal skills to the production of tools and components for appliances.
A passion for quality, contemporary design and the Italian way of life inspire us to continually improve and develop in the area of innovation. Although Fulgor Milano has had a history of manufacturing cooking equipment since the late '40s, it became our goal to build on that heritage and develop cooking equipment that would exceed all expectations of quality, performance, and styling.
