Responsable lean et Amélioration continue

Sogefi’s history as a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of engine filtration and vehicle suspension components is tied to its commitment to innovation and research for excellence. These distinguishing traits are evident in the initial acquisitions and joint ventures which were made a few months after the company was established.

From the very beginning, such actions were triggered by the intention to expand the Group through global strategic acquisitions in the vehicle components sector. Sogefi soon established plants in many countries, many of which are now major global economies. Two examples are Brazil and China, where Sogefi has had a presence since 1991 and 1995 respectively.

Sogefi’s top priority has always been to bring value from its operations to all its stakeholders, and we believe the company has been successful in achieving this.
