60 years of Cefla Finishing

In 2024, the Cefla Finishing Business Unit reaches a major milestone: 60 years of success, innovation and rewarding partnerships.

For six decades, Cefla Finishing has provided cutting-edge solutions to the finishing industry. Over that time, the company has gone from being a local business to a world leader, all thanks to an ability to anticipate market needs and satisfy them with innovative technology and exceptional customer service.
