The powerful success story of award-winning Fracino, the UK’s only manufacturer of cappuccino and espresso coffee machines, began in the 1950’s when machine tool designer Frank Maxwell stripped down a second hand coffee machine bought on a family holiday to Italy.
Frank started importing and supplying coffee machines to retail outlets in Britain. He launched the business in 1963 and the company has traded under the Fracino brand since 1990.
Now based on the Wyrley Trading Estate in Birmingham, Fracino’s 40 plus strong product portfolio is enjoyed and respected worldwide. Its powerful machines are tailored to suit all budgets, with customised equipment meeting technical and aesthetic requirements.
A consistent award-winner, the 40+ strong company’s string of achievements include a Millenium Product Award for design for the Roastilino counter top roaster, recognition as one of the UK’s fastest growing inner city enterprises – and the first company of its kind to gain the ISO 9002 quality standard.
