Sonus faber has acquired the De Santi woodworking factory in San Martino di Lupari, 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. The companies have been partners and collaborators for nearly four decades, together creating loudspeakers known around the world for their engineering, quality and performance.

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 closes 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.

De Santi Srl owner, Stefano De Santi 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 enable 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.

Sonus faber distribution is via Fine Sounds UK.
