What is Candy?
After having manufactured the first Italian washing machine in 1945, Candy quickly became known for their quality across the country. Offering high performance in their built-in and freestanding appliances, the home appliances manufacturer offers products with the latest technologies and stylish Italian design.
Candy was named after a popular song at the time, made famous by Nat King Cole and, in 1955 they had become big enough to open their first foreign subsidiary in France. In 1958, they opened one in Germany.
In 1957, the company launched the Bi-Matic, the first semi-automatic washing machine with rinse and spin functions. The first Candy dishwasher was released in 1966 and the brand branched into refrigeration in the early 1970s. Over the years, Candy have worked together with designers to create award-winning appliances.
In the 70s, with the advent of environmental awareness, Candy began to address the issue of sustainability in their appliances. They developed machines that reduced environmental impact and saved resources but still performed optimally. In 1981, Candy created the first fridge freezer with no frost technology. By 2002, the Italian brand was already exporting to 111 countries and, in this same year, the motto ‘Candy Can Do’, which is still in use today, was invented.
Today, the manufacturer remains a popular home appliance brand beloved by many around the world for its quality, performance and design.
