SERFA develops and manufactures high-quality, robust gates, fences, access control solutions and security doors. Based in Choisy-le-Roi in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, the privately-owned company was established in 1982. The first products were metal garage doors for apartment buildings.
“Since then, we have expanded the product assortment to include all types of locking devices for securing any type of premise, from private to commercial and industrial ones,” explains President Dominique Comte.
Equipped with its own metal workshops, SERFA covers the entire value chain, from design and production to installation and instructions through to repairs and maintenance. The main area of activity of the company is Greater Paris and the Île-de-France region.
SERFA has 55 employees and sales revenues of eight million EUR. The company makes all gates, fences and doors to measure the clients’ individual specifications and requirements and considers everything from individual aesthetic preferences to the latest digital access control solutions, including high-tech video surveillance systems.
The company is at the head of the digital transformation in its sector and not only offers state-of-the-art, IoT enabled access control systems. “We also provide remote maintenance services and have developed our own app which allows the customer to check what specific measures have been taken,” explains Mrs. Comte.
SERFA’s main focus lies on renovation and retrofitting projects, and less on new buildings. “Maintenance and repair services are getting more and more important, too,” states Mrs. Comte. SERFA works for a wide range of customers, ranging from social housing associations and private home owners to large industrial clients and renowned financial institutions like Banque de France, the French National Bank.
Our customers appreciate we are a medium-sized enterprise which genuinely meets their individual needs. Dominique ComtePresident
“We have both many private and many public clients,” says Mrs. Comte. “Our customers appreciate we are a medium-sized enterprise which genuinely meets their individual needs, rather than a large, multinational corporation with standard solutions only. This philosophy will remain the cornerstone of our success, together with always incorporating the latest technological developments.”
