Company Story

Here at Fulgor Milano we value the quality of our products. A common thread runs through the story of Fulgor Milano that is closely tied to the history of a family with deep roots in the fabric of the Veneto region of Italy. The story begins when an enlightened entrepreneur embarked upon an ambitious journey of applying his artisanal skills to the production of tools and components for appliances.
A passion for quality, contemporary design and the Italian way of life inspire us to continually improve and develop in the area of innovation. Although Fulgor Milano has had a history of manufacturing cooking equipment since the late '40s, it became our goal to build on that heritage and develop cooking equipment that would exceed all expectations of quality, performance, and styling.

2009 - Meneghetti Fulgor Milano
Meneghetti acquires Fulgor in Gallarate, an opportunity that enables the company to enter the export market with their own brand, which makes up a large portion of the company’s exports, especially to the North American market.
Fulgor celebrates its 60th anniversary and the brand is reinvented as Fulgor Milano, a complete line of premium built-in appliances.
With a long history of success and profound experience in the OEM business, in June 2015 Meneghetti Spa, owner of the Fulgor Milano brand, presented “SOFIA”, the new professional range inspired by an elegant female figure and designed for the North American market. Sofia is a solid, generously sized freestanding range with a clean and rigorous style that evokes the Italian dream. Designed, developed and engineered in Italy to exceed all expectations of quality, performance and style.
2016 - FTK EuroCucina
In April 2016, Fulgor Milano was among the exhibitors of EuroCucina 2016 - FTK (Technology for the Kitchen), the most prestigious international showcase dedicated to the presentation of the latest technology for “cooking”. On this occasion, Fulgor Milano presented CreActive, the new line of home appliances, characterized by clean lines and high technology, with a design and attention to detail typically made in Italy.

Amongst other new products, the new ACCENTO range is introduced at the 2019 KBIS Exhibition in Las Vegas.
Adding an “accent” of color has never been easier with Fulgor Milano’s unique color kit system for the ACCENTO range.
If beauty is in the details, there is no question our new ACCENTO range is ready for the red carpet.
From the sculpted lines of the handles and grates to the symmetry of the lines, top to bottom, no detail was overlooked.
1949 - 2019  Celebrating3
Fulgor celebrates its 70th anniversary in the name of the values it has embraced since the beginning: passion for design, style, detail and quality both in the kitchen and in cooking.
Thanks to the love of the Meneghetti family and the relentless work of the R&D team, Fulgor Milano extends the scope of its offer by launching a new series for the international markets, distinguished by the best available design and technology.
KBIS 2022 Story
