Guyancourt, October 16, 2013 – Sogefi, the OE and aftermarket filter specialist is lifting the veil on an optimised packaging system designed to reduce environmental impact and facilitate logistics. The first phase of the project is about to be implemented and covers packaging for the company’s aftermarket cabin air filters.
Eight out of ten European best-selling cars are fitted with a range of Sogefi products according to the Information Handling Services (IHS). The recent IHS report found Sogefi filters, suspension parts and air and cooling systems in the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa and other European favourites. The Group's popularity with these makes and models is testimony to the excellent quality of Sogefi's OE and aftermarket products, which both feature identical technologies.
The leading automotive parts supplier in Europe, the Sogefi Group, is now launching into the markets, its new high quality filter brand that has been exclusively tailored for light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses.
When the cold season is ready to leave, and the warm sunshine returns, we need to worry about unwelcome allergic reactions that can arise in spring time. Particles that are far too small to be seen by the naked eye are aggressive enough to cause discomfort like sneezing, hay fever and even possibly asthma. This could be very dangerous while driving a car. Sogefi Aftermarket cabin filters offer a simple solution.
Despite the car crisis in Europe, sales benefited from the growth of non-European markets, which now represent 33.5% of the group revenues (30.5% in 2011), and from thecontribution of Systèmes Moteurs. North American revenues more than doubled (+107.6%), strong growth in Asia (+35.4%)
A high performance Sogefi diesel filter is the essential product for the impending winter period, which demands special attention for the replacement of diesel filters. With this advanced product range, Sogefi, the leading European filter manufacturer, is responding to the ever increasing demand of the diesel market.
Sogefi Group, Europe’s leading Original Equipment and Aftermarket filter manufacturer, has made the perfect start to 2013 by securing a further three-year contract as a preferred supplier to Groupauto, UK and Ireland.
Sogefi Group, Europe’s leading OE and Aftermarket filter manufacturer, has launched a fully updated, re-designed 2013 catalogue for each of its aftermarket filter brands: Fram, CoopersFiaam, Purflux and the newly launched Sogefi Pro for heavy duty applications.
Leading automotive parts supplier, Sogefi Group is launching a new, high quality filter brand exclusively tailored for light commercial vehicles, trucks & buses: Sogefi Pro. The new brand is replacing all the heavy duty filters that were previously offered under Sogefi’s Purflux, FRAM®, CoopersFiaam and Tecnocar brands. It is also integrating 80 brand new part numbers, never available from Sogefi before. Overall, a complete program of more than 500 P/N is now available from Sogefi Pro.
From Volkswagen to Ford, Peugeot to Renault, one supplier name links eight of Europe’s top ten selling cars of 2011. All of these popular vehicles feature original equipment made by leading automotive parts provider Sogefi Group, which specialises in developing and manufacturing advanced engine systems and suspension components for both OE and the aftermarket.
The market for cabin air filters is steadily growing (– and there is even more potential that aftermarket distributors and garages are yet to exploit), confirms Europe’s leading automotive filtration specialist, Sogefi Group.
The deal, which is based on an enterprise value of approximately 150 million euro, consolidates Sogefi’s presence in the international markets and boosts its position in air intake and engine cooling systems thanks to a broader and more integrated range of solutions.
