New 5-meter wide production line | 2016-01

SENFA's production capacity was more or less saturated in 2014 & 2015. The company has invested nearly €8 million in a brand new 5-meter coating line to increase its output.
The installation of the new 5 mt coating line has been a challenge which generated nearly 8 months of work with a reorganization of the warehouse & logistics, as well as a new facility to automate paste preparation prior to coating.

This represents a major competitive advantage for SENFA which now aims to consolidate its leading positions in Europe and open up new markets.

On Friday, November 27, Michael Fribourg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Chargeurs, and Bernard Finckenbein, Chief Executive Officer of Chargeurs Technical Substrates, inaugurated this new 5-meter wide production line at the plant run by Chargeurs Technical Substrates' subsidiary SENFA in Sélestat, Alsace.

The first company in Alsace confirmed for Eco-design | 2015-09

SENFA has undertaken a number of steps for eco-designing products for Decoprint since 2010. SENFA is one of the first companies in Alsace to engage in the CIM-ECO program for the acquisition and development of skills & knowhow in this area. Since then the company has continued to deepen this approach by conducting environmental assessments of products, by developing eco-innovative formulations, conducting research on recycling & into the end of life of products. Subsequently a real system of project management has been established & put into place around this work.

Last July, the company's efforts were rewarded with the award of the Eco-design AFAQ-label (Confirmed or Level III out of IV) following an independant evaluation ... a first in Alsace..! This distinction certifies the ongoing presence of eco-design in SENFA.

With this approach, inspiring our corporate culture, the Decoprint brand continues to improve the environmental quality of products with the assurance that this is of a growing concern for all and integral development for the Decoprint brand.
