Part of the same group as Hoover, Candy traces its roots back to 1945 when the Model 50 washing machine first saw the light of day in the workshops of Eden Fumagalli at Monza; famous for the manufacture of precision instruments.

As the first all-Italian washing machine, Candy was one of the earliest miracles of domestic well-being. The Candy brand name then came into existence.

Since then Candy's progress has been marked by extraordinary success. The founder's sons, Enzo, Niso and Peppino Fumagalli, started washing machine production, making them the centre and the strength of their manufacturing activity. Unstoppable, in 1954 Candy made a decisive move in washing traditions: the birth of the Bi-Matic, the first semi-automatic washing machine with a spinner. Candy then opened its first production plant abroad, in France. Just six years later, the washing machine became completely automatic: Candy raced ahead on the road of innovation. While the washing machine was being refined to save water and energy, the Stipomatic, the first Candy dishwasher was launched. Candy had already progressed beyond washing machines. Niso Fumagalli, the originator of most of the patents, was awarded an honorary degree in engineering by the University of Genoa. In the 70s an important new phase started for Candy: to acquire other Italian companies, starting with La Sovrana of Parma, a historic brand name in the cooking sector and Kelvinator Italia, internationally famous for its refrigerators and freezers. Candy also drew up an agreement with Kelvinator America to produce and market domestic products with the American name all over the world. There was another important advance in the 80s: the international expansion of Candy and the further acquisition of prestigious European companies.
