About us

We continue to write the story of an adventure that began a long time ago

Effegibrevetti is a company specialising in the design, engineering and production of opening and fitting systems for the furniture industry.


How Effegibrevetti was born: the first inventions

Effegibrevetti was born from an adventure started by Fiorello Giovannetti, when in an old basement in Via Marciano in Milan, he began experimenting with the first mechanical processes. Thus, using the first machine tools, built by himself, he began to make various types of assembly of small mechanical components.

Later, Fiorello Giovannetti invented the helicoidal expansion plug, called Ankor, and the brass expansion bushing, including the variant with a pad for unhardened screws. On 2 March 1966 Fiorello Giovannetti received an award for the best inventor in the Lombardy area for his product.

We can count on more than 60 years of success, recounted through complex technical solutions and a wide range of products for every need. We strive every day to put into practice what are the founding principles of our mission: innovation, functionality and quality. However, being aware that the value of a piece of furniture also depends on the design of the elements that compose it, we pay a lot of attention to the aesthetic aspect of each solution we design.

Our products are entirely designed and manufactured in Italy at our headquarters. Our only headquarters is in Segrate, near Milan, and it is here that the various production, warehouse and research and development offices are located: the efficiency of each product has been determined by the numerous and constant investments that have been made in these areas.
