It is with deep sadness we regret to inform you of the passing of FERMAX´s Founder, Mr. Fernando Maestre, aged 88, who passed away on Monday 19th of August.
One of the best known successful Spanish entrepreneurs for his visionary talent and the Brand he created seventy years ago: The outcome of almost seven decades of sustained and dedicated effort to offer the most advanced products and systems in building communications and access control.
Always caring about the staff, someone of great humanity and bright but tremendously humble, he was a source of inspiration for everyone.
Fernando Maestre Martínez was born in Elda (Alicante, Spain). When he was 17 years old, he and a friend found the telegraph key of a plane that had been shot down during the Spanish Civil War. His curiosity and interest in learning led him to use it to make a rudimentary telegraph with which he connected his house with his friend's via a cable stretched across the rooftops. Motivated by his passion for electronics, he completed a correspondence course in electronics and decided to set up a radio repair workshop at home. Not long after, he started making radios himself. It was the seed of the future FERMAX.
On behalf of the people that is part of FERMAX, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to his family and show our commitment to preserve his legacy.
His memory will remain in our hearts.
