Having an early start in the glass industry at the Stephens Brothers Factory School, Floriano Ferreira da Silva used to dream of having his own business.
He asked for a one-year leave from work and in 1941, during World War II, in a small workshop, he started by cutting a large variety of components which were used to decorate chandeliers, lamps and candelabras.
He was, however, determined to change his dream into a successful project, and in 1985 he decided to create the company F. Ferreira da Silva, LDA, a name which stands to this day. The company, which is home to the third generation, is still run by the family.
Due to the market needs...
And the concern for the client's choices and tastes, the company has diversified its activity. As a result, there have been opportunities for negotiation with the USA, Europe and more recently, Asia, this has also led to an expansion of the company.
The company is currently not limited to the cutting of pieces but has also developed the production of glass and other types of arm lamps, with gold, silver and nickel-finished brass components.
