Report 2017

A common advantage encourages overall growth

At Cefla the cooperative spirit can be felt in every action, project and intention.

We are close to the people in every way. In sharing goals, training our staff, heightening our awareness of both local needs and global changes while ensuring the success of our clients all over the world.

At Cefla we consider progress a circular process that resonates widely and creates value for everybody and for the environment.

This is why we spend so much energy on developing new products and services, and on continuous process improvement. Because only preparation and research can generate common responsible performance.

Hence, every achievement is the outcome of work centred on trust, guarantees and stability. And everybody takes credit for the results.

Innovation as a key factor for competitiveness

Safety.
Achieved goal and starting point.

There is no value without safety. Cefla is aware of this, and all our actions have confirmed it from the onset. Safety underpins every action, shared moment, innovation and performance.
A pre-requisite that we consider both an achievement and a starting point to be proud of and a point of honour.
