Design is one of the most important lines of innovation for the company's development.
In keeping with this aim, Fermax has worked since 1973 with the prestigious industrial designer Ramón Benedito (National Design Prize 1992), who emphasizes two factors when designing equipment for Fermax: product durability and a touch of distinction.
