About Fersa

Fersa was established in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1941 by Mr. Jules Samuel who was born in Belgium in 1901. Mr. Samuel continued a long tradition of handcrafted decorative hardware made in France by establishing a factory in Buenos Aires when imports from Europe were disrupted by World War II.

From the very beginning the company was devoted to developing new and innovative products following the finest European designs and traditions ensured by Italian and Spanish metal artisans who migrated to Argentina since the beginning of the 20th century. This history of excellence in both reproducing period hardware using ancient methods (sand cast foundry, metal chiseling and mercury gold plating), and developing new designs of superb quality, has allowed Fersa to hold the leading position within the Latin American market of decorative hardware for over 60 years.

In 1988, in order to satisfy recent trends demanding authentic traditional styles, Fersa began selling its products through decorative hardware showrooms located in the U.S.A. Since then Fersa´s products have been accessible to the many architects and interior designers in search of something special to offer to their clients worldwide.

The never ending search for new materials and designs led Roberto and Eduardo Samuel, the second generation, to design a completely new line of hand-forged iron decorative hardware in the Spanish Style.
