What does Farécla mean?

Farécla was chosen as a combination of French words meaning ‘shining’ and ‘bright’.

When our founder, Rod Hawkins, worked with Georges Fevrier, a French industrial chemist to develop, manufacture and distribute abrasive products in 1952, the brand name Farécla was chosen and our products have been living up to their name ever since.

Despite the French name, we’re very much a British company with a global reach. From our small beginnings in North London, in our first year our products were exported to Finland, Netherlands and New Zealand. Today, we export to over 120 countries around the world with offices and warehouses in the USA and China, in addition to our headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Ware, UK.
