From the initial concept to the logistics, we take care of every part of the process up to the last detail. We work hand in hand with the client and being manufacturers allows us customize orders.

Our team is organized into different working departments working collectively, which allows us to give effective solutions to the customer, whilst maintaining total control of each of the processes. This is our circle of value.


Product and Process Engineering Departments work on the selection and development of the most competitive and efficient design and manufacturing concepts, in accordance with state of the art technologies.

CEFA support their customer in the earliest program stages, aligning strengths with their customers´ targets and expectations; shifting their engineering resources to customer’s Engineering Centres, if requested.

Design Cost Control System by CEFA allows defining the program at an affordable cost as well as its tracking and control during every program development phase.

CEFA Product and Process Engineering perform design control reviews throughout product lifetime to achieve targets of cost reductions programs to be shared with the customer.
