An innovative company
« Innovation » is our key word, whether it relates to racing or cruising: 
Facnor has become the European leader in its market area thanks to an approach based on research and its commitment to the development of patents. Its efforts paid off several times as Facnor won: the 1991 Innovation INPI (French National Industrial Property Institute) national trophy, the 1998 Grand Pavois Innovation prize, various nominations at the Metstrade (trade show), Pittman Award in 2011, (American magazine: “Sail Magazine”) and finally the 2012 Segeln award (German magazine).


Our high proven quality designed and manufactured products, our proactive teams and the reliability of our resellers helped us becoming one of the best boat fitting manufacturers. We find the easiest and reasonable solutions combining fast assembly and effortless use.

Facnor is the worldwide leader in furling systems.  We supply many shipyards as well as ocean sailors, which help with the research and upgrade of the product range. Facnor has developed a network of 170 resellers covering 35 countries.

Innovation from cruising to racing…

Since 1981, Facnor has grown through its appetite for innovation while remaining a thriving French industrial company. Our company is part of  Wichard group (Wichard Marine & Industry, Sparcraft, Lorima, Péguet, Maillard and Profurl).
