Cefla was founded in Imola in 1932, where it has grown and become solidly established as the large multi-business group it is today, turning its diversity into its very strength.

WEARECEFLA is the inspiration behind our mission:
CREATING VALUE OVER TIME. This is the spirit that drives the group every day while heading towards the future, through product innovation and process evolution, giving a strategic direction to the five business units.”

Cefla has always believed in working together, starting from its legal form, a cooperative, which allows it to engage employees in the corporate structure.
We create value
We believe in continuous improvement, in combining skills with new ideas, in order to create value over time.
Closely linked to the territory
A value we hold dear is staying close to the territory and local context: that same value we sought in our origins, now applied to new markets where we are in evident growth.
Work with passion
People who work with passion and competence is our greatest wealth to building the future every day.
