Facnor is a worldwide leader in designing and manufacturing furling systems. The company supplies many shipyards as well as ocean sailors who participate in well known races like the Vendée Globe, The Race and the Volvo Race, all sailing genuine "Formule 1" boats. Distribution wise, Facnor has developed a global network of dealers covering 35 countries.
Continuing innovation is the goal of the FACNOR Design Team which started in 1985 with the introduction of a new jib furler range featuring the patented telescopic section. Seven years later, FACNOR introduced the FACSLIDE® batten car system. This new system eliminated end stops on the cars and can fit on any type of mast.
At the 1998 La Rochelle Boat Show, the complete FACNOR range of continuous line furling systems was awarded by the well-known « Innovation Award ».
80% of French yacht builders select FACNOR furlers for their new boats, which is proof of FACNOR’s high quality. Outside of France FACNOR continues to grow with an international network of 35 dealers, and is fast becoming the world,standard for furling equipment.
