After the thirty-year experience of Iannaccone spa in the distribution of equipment in the Horeca sector, CAB spa was founded in 1986 by Mr Armando Iannaccone with the aim of undertaking a real industrial activity. The business objective of Mr Iannaccone was to distribute a top-quality product worldwide and from the beginning the company specialized in building slush machines and cold drink dispensers in the factory at Pozzuoli.
Success came early, in 1990 CAB became official supplier of LG International Corporation in South Korea, so spreading its vertical slush machine on a global scale.
Riding the wave of enthusiasm for the deal with LG, in 1990 the first cold drink dispensers, the LUKE model, appeared. During the Milan Fair the first order of 5.000 coolers arrived, further spreading the CAB brand in the European market.
1993 was a year of transition for CAB because Mr Iannaccone died at a young age and Mr Maurizio Caiano took command of the company. Leveraging his experience in the field of refrigeration, he took on this new challenge with courage and determination, succeeding in further consolidating the company’s growth.
1996 was the year of the real turning point for the future of CAB, that year the first horizontal slush machine appeared. The FABY model was an immediate success at the Rimini Fair, thanks to the patented double-stirring system, enabling the company to reach sales never previously imagined.
Two years later in 1998, with the need to position itself on the market with a cold drink dispenser with an innovative look, the FAST COLD model appeared which allowed CAB to extend its sales into previously unknown markets.
With the advent of the new millennium, CAB celebrated a very important milestone. Thanks to the quality and reliability of its products, the company’s brand was then present in 50 countries worldwide on 5 continents.


In 2002 CAB extended its range to a different sector to that in which it had specialized for 16 years. The CIOCAB model appeared, a distributor of chocolate and hot drinks.
In 2004 the company presented the first automatic cold drinks dispenser, the FUNNY MIX model with patented mixing system that did not require the use of stirring motors.
In subsequent years, CAB restyled the existing models before presenting a machine with patented vertical stirring system in 2007 which would revolutionize the old concept of the classic vertical slush machine. This was the CARESS model.
The new model would allow CAB to respond in a much more targeted fashion to new market requirements, which required the production of products such as coffee cream.
2010 marked another milestone for the company, the CAB brand had spread to nearly 70 countries in the world, a symbol of the constant development and continuous growth of the company.
Based on the concept of the Caress model, the MISSOFTY model appeared two years later. The first slush machine produced by CAB that could produce and dispense frozen yogurt, a product in great demand that had a very interesting market potential.
In 2014, CAB sales greatly improved and pushed the company management to think of increasing its production capacity. In fact, in February 2015, the new production facility at Castel Volturno was opened, allowing the company to double its production volumes and have two factories just 20 km from each other.
After the prototype presented at the Host Fair in 2013, in June 2015 CAB began marketing a new product that transformed the slush machine market, the Blaze model.

Designed with an exclusive patented vertical stirring system and an innovative design, Blaze immediately becomes the mini slush machine par excellence modern and functional. If on the one hand Blaze is able to cope with the needs of those who have a limited daily consumption of product, Cab is more and more motivated to face new professional challenges dedicated themselves, just two years after, to the design and manufacture of two new models: Faby Igloo and Zippy. With Faby Igloo, energy consumption is significantly reduced thanks to an exclusive project which exploits the double thermal tanks insulation; With Zippy, the cold drinks range is amplified and enriched. 2018 has come and Cab needs to keep up with the latest trends, at a time when the coffee ginseng is proposed as a valid alternative to the traditional espresso coffee, here comes Barley, a soluble products’ machine able to produce and dispense products such as coffee, barley, ginseng, guarana coffee and hot chocolate. More than 30 years have now passed since the start of its activity and the high quality standards, the ability to develop and manufacture custom projects and products has allowed CAB to establish itself as a dynamic and versatile company, ready to meet any kind of market demand, becoming a leader in European and non-European market crossing the geographical boundaries of approximately 90 countries in the world. Innovation, design, manufacture and ambition are just some of the winning key points that have always characterized the CAB world which during 2019 offers to its clients the possibility to minimize the time and costs of service and maintenance, thereby maximizing sales and profits through the Faby infinity.

CAB – What’s next …?
