SEFAC begins its lift activity in the late 1960’s and has been manufacturing and selling lifts into the United States since the 1970’s.
The SEFAC® brand was created for use on its newly developed mobile column lifts, for sale into the U.S.
SEFAC within the framework of its global commercial strategy, builds a distribution network to increase presence in the US.
SEFAC opens a US subsidiary in Baltimore, MD. SEFAC mobile column lifts are among the first to obtain third-party certification, which demonstrates the commitment of SEFAC to the US Markets, and the quality of products designed and manufactured by SEFAC France.
The SEFAC Group is sold to a European company, TRIAPT Holdings.
Triapt Holdings sold its US subsidiary to SLEC which had been the U.S. distributor of SEFAC lifts, and the remainder of Triapt’s world-wide holdings of the SEFAC Group, including its manufacturing facility in France, SEFAC S.A., to the present shareholders.
SEFAC introduces the S3 column lift, one of its future best-sellers.
